Matrox Imaging launches Rapixo CXP Series frame grabbers
April 14, 2018 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
Apr. 14, 2018 – Matrox Imaging is introducing the Matrox Rapixo CXP, a new series of multi-link CoaXPress 2.0 frame grabbers. Leveraging the latest version of CoaXPress, the Rapixo CXP boards support data rates of up to four times 12.5 Gbps, with a PCIe x8 host computer interface to match for high-speed, high-resolution machine vision applications.
Rapixo CXP features up to four connections, and strives to further simplify integration with support for Power-over-CoaXPress (PoCXP) that combines power, command, and data interfaces onto one cable. Matrox Rapixo CXP boards offer custom onboard image processing using their field-programmable gate array device (FPGA) and can also host the license for Matrox Imaging software, which Matrox says avoids the need for a separate hardware key. Meanwhile the PoCXP design streamlines the system set-up by combining the camera’s power interface with its command- and data-interface onto the same coaxial cable, it adds. The Matrox Rapixo CXP will be available in Q2 2018.
