CoaxPress for High-Speed Vision
CoaXPress (CXP) is a digital interface standard for the transmission of high-speed vision data from a single camera, to a host such as a frame grabber in a PC, using a single standard coax cable. Currently a 6.25Gbps downlink is supported. The single camera can also be an interface device that combines data from several cameras, as CoaXPress has the ability to carry multiple image data and meta-data channels.
CoaXPress combines the simplicity of standard coaxial cable with state of the art high speed serial data technology. The primary driving force behind the development of the CoaXPress standard was the need to overcome cable length, speed and ease of use limitations of legacy digital video interfaces in order to meet the requirements of high-end and future generation imaging applications.
