This paper presents a low-cost frame grabber, which was specifically designed as part of a real-time motion detection system for high-resolution images. The frame grabber is FPGA-based to minimise size of the PCB and improve reliability of the system. It also acts as a backend add-on card for an IBM-PC compatible. The experimental tests carried out on different machines show that the board implemented meets all specifications required by the system, and performs well. The captured frames are clear, well contrasted and jitter-free in both live and still video modes and their quality is comparable to that available from equivalent commercial systems.
