Matrox adds new connection options to Rapixo CXP frame grabbers lineup
July 4, 2019 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
July 4, 2019 – Matrox Imaging has expanded its Rapixo CXP series of frame grabbers, which now count versions with one and two connections to complement the original version with four connections.
Each of these frame grabbers supports the highest speeds in CoaXPress (CXP) 2.0—namely the CXP-12 mode—for high-end machine vision applications.
The major feature of the CXP 2.0 standard is the increased data rate; now up to 12.5 Gbps. The doubled bandwidth per connection is thoroughly ready for the new generation of high-resolution, high-rate image sensors.
Featuring either one or two connections, the Matrox Rapixo CXP single and dual boards can interface with either one or two CXP 2.0-compliant cameras; the dual board can likewise accommodate higher data rates through connection aggregation. The boards support Power-over-CoaXPress (PoCXP), simplifying system setup by having power delivered over one of the coaxial cables.
A quad-connection version—the Matrox Rapixo CXP quad—is also available.
