Montreal—Matrox Imaging introduces the Matrox Rapixo CXP, a new series of multi-link CoaXPress 2.0 frame grabbers. Leveraging the latest version of CoaXPress, the Rapixo CXP boards support data rates of up to four times 12.5 Gbps, with a PCIe x8 host computer interface to match, as required in high-speed, high-resolution machine vision applications.
Rapixo CXP features up to four connections, and further simplifies integration with support for Power-over-CoaXPress (PoCXP) that combines power, command, and data interfaces onto one cable. Matrox Rapixo CXP boards also offer custom onboard image processing using their field-programmable gate array device (FPGA) and can also host the license for Matrox Imaging software, avoiding the need for a separate hardware key.

“The Matrox Rapixo CXP family provides immediate benefits and access to customers looking to leverage the CoaXpress 2.0 standard,” says Mathieu Larouche, product manager, Matrox Imaging. “The added speed over a single link looks to be a boon for interfacing to cameras that will integrate a new generation of still higher-resolution and higher-rate sensors in the most straightforward way.”
The Matrox Rapixo CXP will be available in Q2 2018.
