BitFlow AXN-PC2-CL-2xE

The Axion-CL uses BitFlow's brand new PCIe Gen 2.0 platform, first designed for the CYton-CXP. To develop this platform, we first started with a clean slate, and asked ourselves, "what does a next generation frame grabber need?" For sure, it needs a PCIe Gen 2.0 back end for the ultimate high speed access to host memory. It also needs a sophisticated DMA engine to handle the demands of new camera interface standards. New standards demand flexibility. For example, CXP cameras will soon be able to put out streams of random sized ROIs, something our previous generation DMA engine was not capable of. In addition, modern computers are getting faster, and busier. The new platform had to be robust in the face of a very busy system, fault tolerant in cases where memory couldn't be accessed. Completely self sufficient as CPUs these days are maxed out. As has already been shown with the Cyton-CXP, BitFlow's Gen 2 plaform meets all these goals.

The BitFlow's PCIe Gen 2 platform is the foundation for today's and tomorrows frame grabbers, be it CoaXPress, Camera Link, or whatever new standards emerge from the Machine Vision industry.
