Karbon-CXP Frame Grabbers


Karbon-CXP frame grabbers acquire images 6x faster than GigE, send power and control commands on single coax cable

BitFlow Karbon-CXP frame grabbers are CoaXPress 1.0 compliant, and support from one to four CXP cameras, as well as support up to four CXP multi-links (up to four links per camera). Other keys to their success are:


  • Supports CXP speeds from 1.250 to 6.250 Gb/S;
  • Provides power for all cameras (up to 13 Watts per camera);
  • Provides Safe Power, full protection from all power line faults;
  • Cameras are Plug and Play with automatic link speed detection;
  • Cameras can be accurately synchronized, or can be completely unsynchronized;
  • PCI Express x8 interface (also works in x16 slots);
  • Separate I/O for each camera;
  • Highly deterministic, low latency frame grabber to camera trigger
  • Supports simultaneous serial communications to all cameras.
