Euresys officially announces the addition of the Coaxlink Quad CXP-12, a 4-connection CXP-12 frame grabber, to its existing Coaxlink series. CXP-12 is the top speed of the latest version of CoaXPress 2.0.
It operates at exactly 12.5 Gbps! So it is twice the existing speed of the CXP Standard. Practically, we’ll replace 2 Camera Link Full cables by one single CXP cable. Over this CXP cable you can transmit more than what could have been transmitted in Camera link Full configurations.

Four-connection CoaXPress CXP-12 frame grabber
At a glance:
- Four CoaXPress CXP-12 connections: 5,000 MB/s camera bandwidth;
- PCIe 3.0 (Gen 3) x8 bus: 6,700 MB/s bus bandwidth;
- Feature-rich set of 20 digital I/O lines;
- Extensive camera control functions;
- Memento Event Logging Tool.
Increase of the maximum connection bit rate to 12.5 Gbps
A major feature of this new product is the increase of the maximum connection bit rate to 12.5 Gbps. Currently, the maximum data rate over a single connection is 6.25 Gbps.
This innovation results in a maximum camera data transfer rate over 4 connections of 5 GByte/s allowing operation of a 10-bit 12-megapixel area-scan sensor at more than three hundred images per second, or an 8-bit 16k line-scan sensor at 300 thousand lines/s.
This new member of the Coaxlink series comes with a PCle Gen 3 x8 bus offering a peak delivery bandwidth of 7.8 GByte/s. The effective delivery bandwidth being of 6.7 GByte/s.
It is worth noting that a single Coaxlink Quad CXP-12 provides more bandwidth than four Camera Link Full frame grabbers, in a single slot!
The numerous applications of the new Coaxlink Quad CXP-12 include among others, AOI, 3D SPI, 3D inspection, printing inspection and in-vehicle video transfer.
