Probably the most versatile frame grabbers in the worldA dedicated USA manufacturer of image acquisition boards which are more than frame grabbers as they offer users a very flexible acquisition system from any analogue or digital image source so they can be used for area scan, line scan or variable scan input formats. When other boards cannot provide a solution Bitflow usually can.

Bitflow Cyton-CXP powerful frame grabber for Machine Vision
The new Cyton-CXP4 is Bitflows third frame grabber based on the CXP standard. The board is capable of four links at full CXP speed (6.25 Gb/s). CXP also allows control commands, triggers and power to be sent to and from cameras over the same coaxial cable. Also, the Cyton –CXP4 contains a fifth CXP connector serving as a high speed uplink capable of running the full 6.25 Gb/s from the frame grabber to the camera is based on Bit Flow’s brand new PCIe Gen 2.0 platform.
CoaXPress (CXP) is a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. Video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). The CXP standard opens the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be modified for CXP with very low installation costs.

ULTRA FAST video acquisition with the BitFlow New Karbon-CXP Frame Grabbers incorporating CoaXPress
BitFlow have launched its Karbon-CXP line of frame grabbers, one of the world's first to incorporate the CoaXPress (CXP) standard for moving high-speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. The result is video acquisition at speeds up to 6 Gigabits per second, as well as the ability to send control commands and triggers at 20 Megabits per second - all over a single piece of 75 Ohm coaxial cable up to 135 meters. Additionally up to 13W of power can be transmitted to camera along the cable.

Simplify your industrial or semiconductor imaging application with BitFlow's new Neon-CLB, the world's first Power over Camera Link (PoCL) frame grabber. PoCL is the new Camera Link (CL) standard for providing power to the camera over the CL cable. With the Neon-CLB, Camera Link now supports simple, one-cable installations while providing data rates up to 255 megabytes per second!
The Neon-CLB is designed for the OEM that needs the performance of the PCI Express bus, BitFlow's famous industrial quality, and one of the lowest price points in the industry. The Neon-CLB can acquire from all Base CL cameras and has enough industrial I/O to handle even the most complicated synchronization tasks.
Adding the Neon-CLB to your application is simple with our SDK, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. The SDK provides high level APIs for sophisticated buffer management and low-level direct access to the board for speedy custom control.
If you need the simplest, most reliable, and best performing PoCL frame grabber, call Alrad today to get our OEM-priced Neon-CLB, BitFlow's 4th generation of robust, industrial CL imaging products.

The Neon - CLD
The Neon-CLD which supports two cameras on the same low cost x4 PCIe platform. Both cameras can be completely independent with different resolutions, frame rates, triggering modes, etc. Or both cameras can be perfectly synchronized. The Neon-CLD is incredibly flexible and powerful, yet it can substantially lower your system cost. Not only is the Neon-CLD very aggressively priced, but there are additional savings from connecting two cameras to one frame grabber.

The NEON - CLQ
The Neon-CLQ, supports capture from four cameras simultaneously. All cameras can be run independently with different resolutions, frame rates, triggering modes, etc. Or all cameras can be perfectly synchronized. The Neon-CLQ is incredibly flexible and powerful, yet it can substantially lower your system cost. The Neon-CLQ on requires a single PCIe slot, you provides interfaces for four camera plus I/O. This means the the Neon-CLQ provides the highest density of cameras per slot of any frame grabber on the market, while bringing the cost per camera down to unprecedented lows. At this price per per camera, the Neon-CLQ can compete with main stream network cameras, while still providing all the robust industrial features expected when using a frame grabber.

The Alta Analog Frame Grabber
The Alta-AN is an affordable, versatile analog product family for Semiconductor and Industrial Vision OEMs. This family can acquire from almost any analog cameras on the market, from high speed asynchronous-reset monochrome cameras to super high resolution color HDTV cameras. The Alta frame grabbers are high-quality, flexible, PCI Express bus imaging products, well supported by an easy-to-use SDK, and drivers for most popular software imaging packages.

Karbon-CL is the world's first four-camera PCI Express frame grabber. It can simultaneously acquire from up to four Base CL cameras or two Full CL cameras (including 10-tap CL). It is built on top of BitFlow's FlowThru technology, which provides zero latency access to data, super low CPU usage, and unlimited DMA destination size. The Karbon-CL is the first member of BitFlow's Karbon family, a platform that will host a wide variety of virtual frame grabbers. These virtual frame grabbers can be customized to meet your specific needs.
The Karbon-CL has been designed with two main applications in mind. First, in situations where more than one camera is needed, the Karbon-CL can reduce both the system cost and the hardware footprint by its ability to acquire from up to four cameras. Second, in situations where extremely high data rates and/or frame rates are required, the Karbon-CL has been designed to acqcuire up to 160 bits at 85 MHz pixel clock rate and DMA at data rates up to 2.0 GB/S. For example, the Karbon-CL can acquire simultaneously from two 10-tap CL cameras.
