On the Fast Lane

The New Super High-bandwidth Interface Standard: CoaXPress

  • ©2009 George Yi©2009 George Yi

Machine vision interface standards and standards in general usually have pros and cons - it is rare to find a technology that ticks all the boxes. CameraLink is simple, relatively fast, but suffers from restricted cable lengths and expensive cabling. GigE Vision has the benefits of low-cost cabling, long cable lengths and no frame grabber needed. However, it is complex, has a relatively low bandwidth and does not have true real-time performance. Firewire and USB 3.0 have similar pros and cons. CoaXPress, however, is a new digital video specification, soon to be a standard, that outperforms other machine vision interfaces in all areas.
