New, affordable four channel frame grabber

Product / 05.2017


Euresys announces the launch of its new Coaxlink Quad CXP-3, an affordable four-channel CXP-3 frame grabber that is significantly cheaper than the CXP-6 version.

“Today, we see different applications where CoaXPress is used not only for its bandwith but also for its other advantages. A single coaxial cable carrying video from the camera, control data and power to the camera,” explains Marc Damhaut, CEO of Euresys.
 
Several camera manufacturers such as Adimec, Vieworks, Sentech and CIS now make compact one-connection CoaXPress cameras. Customers see CoaXPress as an easy upgrade path from analog.
 
But many of these applications do not need the full CXP-6 bandwidth and CXP-3 is enough. The key point is that CXP-3 is significantly cheaper than CXP-6. And at CXP-3 speed, the maximum cable length is over 100 meters, whereas it is 40 meters with CXP-6.
 
“What we have done is basically taken one of our cards and used a slower chip. The 6 Gbps chip is pretty expensive, it is a significant part of the manufacturing of the cost of our card. But the cheaper version that runs at 3 Gbps is good enough for many applications.”
 
Our partner, Japanese-based CIS, which now offers compact CXP-3 cameras said: “Not only for its high bandwidth, but also for its reliability and cable length, we saw CoaXPress as an ideal next-gen interface for addressing various applications where signal integrity matters. CIS has started launching CXP cameras with resolutions ranging from VGA to 25MPix., and for our CXP-3 models, we are seeing a rise in demands ranging from conventional machine vision to ITS and robotics applications.
 
In order to fully cater to the CXP-3 customer requirements, the only and key missing link was the availability of affordable, multi-channel frame grabber. We welcome Euresys’ introduction of Coaxlink Quad CXP-3 as a blessing, and a critical step forward for further expansion of CXP applications.”

 
Euresys expects the robotics sector in particular, as mentioned by CIS, to become a major user of the Coaxlink Quad CXP-3.
