The AXN-PC2-CL-1xe uses BitFlow's brand new PCIe Gen 2.0 platform, first designed for the Cyton-CXP.

To develop this platform, Bitflow first started with a clean slate, and asked, "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.

Also, modern computers are getting faster, and busier. The new platform has to be robust in the face of a very busy system and fault tolerant in cases where memory couldn't be accessed.Needs to be completely self sufficient as CPUs these days are maxed out.

As has already been shown with the Cyton-CXP, BitFlow's Gen 2 platform meets all these goals. The BitFlow's PCIe Gen 2 platform is the foundation for today's and tomorrow's frame grabbers, be it CoaXPress, Camera Link, or whatever new standards emerge from the Machine Vision industry.

Adding the Axion-CL to your application is simple with our SDK, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Applications can be developed using C/C++/.NET and our sophisticated buffer management APIs.

Also, free drivers can be downloaded from our website for most 3rd party machine vision packages. The Cyton models are software compatible with each other, as well as with all the other current BitFlow frame grabbers. This makes migrating applications from Camera Link or analog to CXP simple and quick.
