BitFlow to Launch New Frame Grabber Technology at Automate 2013 Trade Show in Chicago

Show will serve as launch pad for new Cyton-CXP4 four-channel frame grabber

WOBURN, MA, January 9, 2013 -- BitFlow, Inc., (www.bitflow.com) a worldwide innovator in machine vision technology, today announced it will attend Automate 2013, the largest solutions-based showcase of automation technologies in North America.


Scheduled for January 21-24, 2013, in Chicago's McCormick Place, the show will serve as the launch pad for BitFlow's new Cyton-CXP4 four-channel frame grabber leveraging the CoaXPress (CXP) platform, as well as its latest additions to its Karbon family of CXP frame grabbers. BitFlow will be showcasing the versatility of CXP in Automate booth #726.

"BitFlow now offers three CXP frame grabbers, the Karbon CXP2, Karbon CXP4 and the brand new Cyton CXP4,: said Donal Waide, Director of Sales for BitFlow. "Coupling the CXP offering with the already popular Camera Link boards, BitFlow has shown once again why we are the leader in the high speed data transfer world."

According to Waide, the CXP standard opens the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be re-purposed for CXP with very low installation costs.

CoaXPress (CXP) is a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. Video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable.
