TurboDrive offers a mode of operation used to push past the Gigabit Ethernet speed ceiling of typically 115 MB/s. It allows a GigE Vision camera to send pixel information at a rate in excess of 150 % of GigE bandwidth and speeding up line and frame rates beyond the nominal link capacity. While the lossless configuration excess of 150 %, a lossy configuration can excess more than 200 % of GigE bandwidth. Still all the benefits of GigE networks - like mass market components and protocols and Ethernet technology for fast and inexpensive communication for distances of up to 100 m - can be used. Engineers can therefore use proven technology, keeping design and support easy, while there's a lot of potential to increase the speed of the application.
