PRESS RELEASE

Xtium-CXP PX8 frame grabber

Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision, announced the expansion of its Xtium series with a new half-length CoaXPress frame grabber. Teledyne DALSA frame grabbers combine industry-leading performance and feature sets, great value, and extensive camera support.

The Xtium-CXP PX8 is fully supported by Sapera™ LT SDK and Teledyne DALSA’s Trigger-to-Image-Reliability™ platform. Like other models within the series, the Xtium-CXP PX8 takes full advantage of the PCIe Gen 2.0 platform using PCIe x 8 slots to deliver bandwidth of up to 2.5 GBs from four input channels (6.25 Gbps per channel). The Xtium-CXP PX8 is in full production now.

The Xtium series minimizes CPU usage and improves processing times for host applications by enabling maximum sustained throughput and ready-to-use image data. The Xtium family offers enhanced memory architecture to handle area and line scan, monochrome and color cameras.
Key features include:

  • Half-length PCIe Gen2 x8 board
  • Four DIN 1.0/2.3 coaxial connectors
  • Support for CXP cameras with 1, 2 or 4 output channels of up to 6.25Gbs/channel
  • Maximum host bandwidth up to 3.4GB/s
  • Support for color and monochrome area, line and Contact Image Sensor (CIS) cameras
  • Onboard processing for Bayer, Lookup Tables and Flat-Line/Flat-Field Correction
  • Independent External trigger inputs and strobe output for external event synchronization
  • Onboard general purpose Input/Output signals
  • Support for Power Over CoaXPress on 4 channels
  • Microsoft® Windows® 7, Windows 8.1 Windows 10 64 and 32-bit O/S
