Matrox Rapixo CXP

Matrox Rapixo CXP

Matrox Rapixo CXP is a new generation of frame grabbers, supporting version 2.0 of the CoaXPress® (CXP) digital interface standard for machine vision applications. The Matrox Rapixo CXP family supports data rates of either up to 6.25 Gbps (CXP-6) or up to 12.5 Gbps (CXP-12).

  • Support for the highest speeds available in CXP 2.0
  • Connect to and capture from up to four cameras or combine connections for even higher data rates
  • PoCXP support simplifies cabling between cameras and vision computer
  • Offload host computer of custom image processing using a FPGA device
  • Auxiliary I/Os per CXP connection to synchronize with sensors, encoders, and controllers
  • Simplify application development using the Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) software development kit (SDK)
  • License fingerprint for MIL software avoids the need for a separate hardware key
