Euresys has announced the latest member of its Coaxlink series, the 8-connection CXP-6 frame grabber: the Coaxlink Octo.

The camera data transfer rate of the Coaxlink Octo is 5 GByte/s. It comes with a PCIe Gen 3 x8 bus offering a peak delivery bandwidth of 7.8 GByte/s. The effective delivery bandwidth is 6.7 GByte/s. It is also compatible with the Memento Event Logging Tool.

The main target for the new Coaxlink Octo is multi-camera applications, with support for up to eight cameras on a single frame grabber/single slot. Successful Coaxlink applications include 3D AOI, FPD inspection, printing inspection and in-vehicle video transfer.

The Coaxlink Octo will be available for external evaluation in Q1'18, and the launch is expected in Q2'18.
