The ARK-5260 open frame embedded platform concept provides flexible PCI/PCIe expansion for a range of applications. It is compatible with raid controllers, motion cards, frame grabbers, and isolated series ports. With the addition of a motion card and a video grabber, the ARK-5260 could form the basis for a visual inspection application, and with the video capture card alone, the rugged platform design makes an excellent choice for industrial DVR.
