BitFlow Upgrades MATLAB Adapter

Upgraded version of its MATLAB adapter, now available as a free download on the BitFlow website

WOBURN, MA, NOVEMBER 7, 2013 -- BitFlow, the machine vision industry's premier manufacturer of frame grabbers, took a further step to simplify the use of MathWorks® MATLAB software by introducing an upgraded version of its MATLAB adapter, now available as a free download on the BitFlow website (www.bitflow.com).


Designed to acquire images from BitFlow frame grabbers directly into MathWorks' MATLAB and Simulink software, the upgraded adapter now provides full support for BitFlow's Software Development Kit (SDK) 5.2 to 5.7, as well as compatibility for all BitFlow frame grabbers, including the recently launched Karbon-CXP and Cyton-CXP CoaXpress models. Additionally, the adapter integrates new capabilities for CLSerial read and write and CXP register access, both implemented via a variety of device-specific properties. Non-default initialization values for device-specific properties can also now be set using the video input format parameter to reduce setup time.

The BitFlow adaptor is a dynamic link library (DLL) that implements the connection between the Image Acquisition Toolbox framework and BitFlow's device drivers to deliver features such as data logging and triggering. The adapter is supported on 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows environments.

MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, engineers can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java™

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
