FireBird CoaXPress Single CXP-6 Frame Grabber
Model Number: AS-FBD-1XCXP6-2PE8
FireBird is designed for ultimate performance providing the very fastest image acquisition without any CPU intervention using the latest FPGA families, DDR3 memory, and a fast Gen2 PCI Express interface.
- CoaXPress gives high speed data, power, and camera control all over a single cable
- High performance with 6 Gigabits per second input rate
- Fast PCI Express 8-lane Gen2 interface
- RISC based DMA engine gives zero CPU acquisition
- Comprehensive I/O
- Supports PoCXP (Power over CoaXPress)
- Standard half-length PCI form factor
- Full GenICam support (including GenTL Producer)
- Supported by the proven Phoenix software SDK
CoaXPress is a new digital transmission standard that allows high speed data from a device such as a camera to be transferred to a host such as a frame grabber. The CoaXPress link supports up to 6.25 Gbps data rates, along with device power up to 13W and device control at 20 Mbps – all on a single coax cable. Very long cable lengths are supported – up to 40m at 6.25 Gbps and over 100m at 3.125 Gbps. FireBird is supported by Active Silicon’s existing Phoenix SDK, allowing easy migration for existing customers using Phoenix frame grabbers. The Phoenix SDK is available as a separate item, and allows rapid system development and integration. It provides comprehensive example applications and optimized libraries, and via a common API it is available for various operating systems including Windows, Linux, Mac OS X and QNX. Drivers for third party applications are also available such as Cognex VisionPro, Image-Pro Plus, StreamPix, LabVIEW etc. Full GenICam support is included in the drivers and this includes a GenTL Producer for data streaming as well as register accesses. As well as functions that control the hardware, the libraries include general purpose functions for the manipulation and display of images. A separate datasheet describes the SDK in detail.
