Xtium CXP PX8
Back to Teledyne Dalsa Frame Grabbers
Back to CoaXPress Frame Grabbers




The Xtium-CXP-PX8 frame grabber expands on the already established and field-proven capabilities of Teledyne Dalsa's Xtium grabber family. Constructed using PCI Express Gen 2.0, the Xtium-CXP achieves rapid access to host memory. The Xtium-CXP series delivers high performance frame grabbers for high bandwidth connectivity to CoaXPress cameras. When plugged into PCI x8 slots, the Xtium-CXP is capable of up to 3.4 GByte/s bandwidth.

Built with enhanced memory, The Xtium-CXP-PX8 is suited to both area and line scan applications for colour or monochrome cameras. The Xtium-CXP-PX8 offers four input CXP input channels for image acquisition each at up to 6.25 Gbit/s. Further, the Xtium-CoaXPress frame grabber minimises CPU load with Direct Memory Access and empowers system designers with substantially reduced processing times.

The Xtium CoaXPress supports Teledyne Dalsa's Sapera LT Trigger-to-Image-Reliability (T2IR). Reliability of the imaging system can be enhanced with critical, real-time details of system events. With T2IR processes can be tracked and monitored, so that acquisition, transfer and control is optimised during development. Saperal LT libraries or a standalone utility - Sapera Monitor, can call hardware and software functions from user applications. Sapera Monitor can be run with no changes to the user application. An intuitive GUI with user selectable events enables detailed reports while image acquisition and transfer commands are being executed by the user application.
