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 up to 6 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). On the same cable, control commands and triggers can be sent back at 20 Megabits/Second (Mb/S). Power is also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable.
Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). 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. The Karbon platform has been shipping with a Camera Link front-end for many years. It have been tested under harsh industrial conditions, running 24/7, and has proven to be robust and reliable.
Adding the Karbon-CXP4 to your application is simple with our SDK, which supports both 32 and 64 bit operating systems. Applications can be developed using C/C++/.NET and our sophisticated buffer management APIs. In addition, free drivers can be download from our web site for most 3rd party machine vision packages. The Karbon models are software compatible with each other, as well as with all the other current BitFlow frame grabbers. This makes migrating applications from Camera Link or analog to CXP simple.
CoaXPress solves many of the problems of previous machine vision standards. It eliminates the cost and distance restrictions of Camera Link cables. It provides a huge increase in quality, resolution and speed over analog, while maintaining its simple and flexible cabling. GigE also uses low cost and long distance capable cabling, but introduces trigger latency and determinism issues that CXP does not have. The Karbon-CXP2 gives your application all of these advantages on an industry proven platform.
