BitFlow is Industry Leader in Supporting LabVIEW™ for CoaXPress

BitFlow, the first company to offer CXP drivers for LabVIEW in 2011, announces support for new LabVIEW 2017

WOBURN, MA, AUGUST 15, 2017 -- BitFlow, Inc. reported today that a free software driver supporting National Instrument® LabVIEW™ for the CoaXPress™ standard has recently become one of the most frequently downloaded products from its website, www.bitflow.com, underscoring the rapidly expanding adoption of this interface by the machine vision industry. The company also announced the immediate availability of a CXP driver for LabVIEW 2017, the latest version of the popular systems engineering software. The drivers are for use with BitFlow Aon™and Cyton™ CoaxPress frame grabbers.


"BitFlow has a long history of spearheading the development of third party drivers optimized for easier access to the full functionality of our frame grabbers, along with much faster image acquisition, and minimal CPU usage," explained Donal Waide, Director of Sales for BitFlow. "We first offered a NI LabVIEW driver in 2009 for our Camera Link frame grabbers. In 2011, we expanded that to include support for our CoaXPress frame grabbers."

Waide continued: "In essence, BitFlow was one of the first independent frame grabber companies to offer support for LabVIEW. This is very typical of the company who offered a 3rd party driver for Halcon back in 1997. Development of third party drivers represents our continuous commitment to adding value to our CXP customer relationships and to help in the acceleration of the CXP standard throughout the scientific, military and industrial vision markets."

One of the many game-changing advantages of BitFlow drivers is that they support all of the company's current product families. As a result only one driver is required for any given application regardless of which BitFlow frame grabber is being deployed.

Strategic collaboration between BitFlow and software developers has resulted in a massive library of third-party drivers. BitFlow plug-and-play drivers seamlessly integrate its frame grabbers within virtually any application environment, eliminating the need for new coding, while helping to achieve more stable systems.

Aside from LabVIEW, BitFlow offers dedicated drivers for AB Software ImageWarp, Cognex Vision Pro, MVTec HALCON, Mathworks MATLAB, NorPix StreamPix, IO Industries Streams, Adaptive Vision Studio and Stemmer Imaging Common Vision Blox.

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.
