Claxon CXP1

The Claxon Platform

BitFlow has been shipping CoaXPress frame grabbers since 2012. The standard has not stood still and BitFlow has continued to advance its products. The latest is the Claxon, a quad CXP-12 PCIe Gen 3* frame grabber. CXP-12 is the latest CoaXPress speed jump, now transmitting video at 12. 5 Gb/S. While the speed of data through the frame grabber has doubled, the overall architecture has remained the same as the previous generation Cyton, allowing user to easily migrate to the newer cameras without major software changes.

The Claxon-CXP1 is just the second product on the Claxon platform. Coming soon will be support for high speed data forwarding (over CXP) and support for CXP over fiber.

*Gen 3 is not required for a single link CXP-12 board.
