Single- to quad-input CoaXPress 2.0 frame grabbers with optional data forwarding and FPGA-based image processing offload
Matrox® Rapixo CXP is a new generation of frame grabbers, supporting version 2.0 of the CoaXPress® digital interface standard for machine vision applications. The Matrox Rapixo CXP series supports data rates of either up to 6.25 Gbps (CXP-6) or up to 12.5 Gbps (CXP-12) per connection. The PCIe® host interface comfortably matches the maximum input bandwidth from the CoaXPress links. The CoaXPress links are accessed through high-density BNC connectors allowing for a homogenous interconnection with new cameras. Power-over-CoaXPress (PoCXP) support on each connection simplifies system configurations, combining the camera’s power interface with its command- and data-interface onto the same coaxial cable.
The Matrox Rapixo CXP series of frame grabbers feature one, two, or four connections for interfacing to independent cameras. Matrox Rapixo CXP Dual and Quad models can also handle higher data rates through connection aggregation. The Matrox Rapixo CXP series possesses sufficient onboard memory to buffer incoming image data in situations where the host computer is temporarily unable to accept data. The fanless design for select models ensures extended use without maintenance.
