BitFlow, one of the world's most innovative suppliers of frame grabbers for machine vision, has upgraded its Software Development Kit (SDK) to the next generation SDK 6.30, now available on the company's download page.
"Our feature-rich SDK toolkit greatly simplifies multi-camera integration projects and gives integrators added flexibly when developing applications," said Donal Waide, Director of Sales for BitFlow. "Customers who download SDK 6.30 will now find support for two of our newest products, the BitBox I/O break out box and the Aon-CXP frame grabber, along with a host of new features."
The BitBox provides an unprecedented 36 inputs and 36 outputs in a compact, DIN-rail mounted, compact form factor that supports TTL, LVDS, open collector, opto-isolated and 24V signaling. Amazingly simple to deploy, it is controlled solely by a BitFlow frame grabber, using the same APIs and drivers. The Aon-CXP is the perfect frame grabber for the new wave of low cost, single link CoaXPress cameras that allow integrators to use standard Coaxial cable for long distance, high-speed transmission of data. The Aon CXP can be coupled with any of the current single link CXP cameras on the market to provide a solution that boasts an 1.6x data rate improvement over USB3, without the restrictions of a short cable.
In addition to support for the Aon-CXP and BitBox, enhancements incorporated into BitFlow SDK 6.30 are:
- BitFlow Preview: This new standard for live image view replaces the previous generation BitFlow SDK's CiView viewer. It provides users with a cleaner interface, and smoother zooming all the way down to the pixel level. Unlike CiView which only saved at 8-bit, Preview acquires and saves images at the full bit depth of the camera.
- CamML: A new tool specifically for BitFlow Cyton™ and Axion™ frame grabber camera configuration files (*.BFML) that makes editing extremely simple and easy to understand.
- Firmware improvements for both Axion and Cyton frame grabbers.
- Up to date camera configuration files and firmware created and updated since the last BitFlow SDK release.
