The Matrox Radient eV-CXP is a cost-effective CoaXPress (CXP) frame grabber with specific models supporting up to two (Dual) or four (Quad) simultaneous connections. By combining a field proven design with the new CXP interface, the Matrox Radient eV-CXP is a dependable high-performance image capture solution for today and into the foreseeable future
Moving forward with CoaXPress
CoaXPress is a new camera interface standard that takes advantage of common coax cabling to transmit images at rates and distances above and beyond previous standards. With CXP, image data can be transmitted at up to 6.25 Gbps using a single coaxial cable and up to 25 Gbps using four cables to a maximum of 40 meters3. CXP’s high-bandwidth makes it the right match for a new generation of cameras with larger and faster image sensors.
CXP’s full duplex design enables the transmission of camera configuration and control along with image data on the same cable. The Power over CoaXPress (PoCXP) capability further simplifies cabling by providing a camera with up to 13W per cable. This unified cabling facilitates the upgrade of legacy imaging systems from analog to digital.
Reliable high-performance image acquisition
The Matrox Radient eV-CXP provides two (Dual) or four (Quad) independent CXP connections through BNC connectors. This allows for simultaneous capture from up to two (Dual) or four (Quad) cameras each running at different CXP speeds (i.e., 1.25, 2.5, 3.125, 5.0 or 6.25 Gbps). For high-bandwidth applications, the Radient eV-CXP frame grabber can also capture from a single camera transmitting image data at up to 12.5 Gbps (Dual) or 25 Gbps (Quad) using connection aggregation.
To reliably handle these high data rates, the Matrox Radient eV-CXP uses a PCIe® 2.0 x8 host interface – with a peak transfer rate of up to 4GB/s – combined with up to 4GB SDRAM of on-board buffering. The frame grabber can also offload the host CPU from having to perform image pre-processing task (i.e., Bayer interpolation, color space conversion and LUT mapping).
