BitFlow to Demonstrate CoaXPress Capabilities at International Technical Expo in Japan

At the booth, BitFlow will show a number of different CoaXPress cameras running with the Cyton-CXP frame grabber.

WOBURN, MA, NOVEMBER 25, 2014 -- At the International Technical Exhibition (ITE) on Image Technology and Equipment in Yokohama, Japan, BitFlow, Inc. will highlight its leadership in CoaXPress technology with a high-profile live demonstration of its Cyton-CXP frame grabbers.


"This is an exciting time in our industry as CoaXPress reaches a tipping point for vision applications across multiple platforms, from quality inspection to intelligent traffic systems. BitFlow is ushering in the next era in system design with our CXP frame grabbers, and demonstrating that many existing vision systems are fully capable and ready to be upgraded to CXP," said Donal Waide, Director of Sales, BitFlow. "BitFlow was at the forefront of CXP when it was first introduced, and we will continue to invest in technologies that raise our customer's productivity."

Scheduled to be held at the company's booth (#DP-05) during ITE exhibiting hours, the demonstration will show that Cyton-CXP frame grabbers provide the simplest, most cost-effective way for vision system integrators to gain higher transmission rates and improved connectivity flexibility over longer distances using standard coaxial cables.

At the booth, BitFlow will show a number of different CoaXPress cameras running with the Cyton-CXP frame grabber. They will also demonstrate how simple it is to switch cameras on-the-fly, and how multiple cameras can be tapped into a single board without compromising data rate speed or performance.

The BitFlow Cyton CXP frame grabber incorporates the Gen 2.0 x8 PCI Express bus interface on its back-end, an advancement that doubles the data rate of the Gen 1.0 bus for the ultimate high speed access to host memory in multi-camera systems, while using the same compact footprint and connectors. It brings powerful development capabilities to machine vision, industrial automation and inspection, or surveillance design projects. By supporting the CoaXPress (CXP) standard on its front end, it facilitates video capture speeds of up to 6.250 Gigabits/second (Gb/S) in applications deploying one to four CXP-6 cameras. CXP also allows control commands, triggers and power to be sent to and from cameras over the same 75 Ohm coaxial cable, greatly reducing installation costs.

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.
