WATERLOO, Canada – October 25, 2018 -  Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision technology, is pleased to announce the next generation high-performance family of frame grabbers – the Xtium™2 for the PCIe Gen3 platform. The Xtium2 family starts with the introduction of two new models of frame grabber boards featuring AIA’s Camera Link HS® interface: the Xtium2-CLHS PX8 and Xtium2-CLHS FX8. The series will also provide support to upcoming and existing interfaces like CoaXPress® (ver 2.0) and Camera Link. 

The Xtium2-CLHS PX8 features 7-lanes operating at 10 Gbit/s using CLHS X-Protocol and can deliver host transfer bandwidth in excess of 6.8 GByte/s. The Xtium2-CLHS PX8 supports a CX4 connector that is Active Optical Cables (AOC) ready. The AOC cables use fiber cable to deliver cable lengths greater than 15 meters.

The Xtium2-CLHS FX8 supports up to four bidirectional SPF+ modules to deliver up to 4.0 GByte/s of image acquisition and host transfer speeds of up to 6.8 GByte/s. The low cost SPF+ module and fiber optic cables help extend cable lengths to 100 meters. In addition, the Xtium2-CLHS FX8 is capable of supporting multiple independent CLHS cameras.

“The next generation of Xtium2 frame grabbers are designed to meet the data throughput and cable length requirements of the new high-speed, high-resolution cameras with CameraLink HS and CoaXPress interfaces. The Xtium2 series simplifies downstream image processing with its on-board, real-time processing with no CPU usage. While performance remains at the heart of the design, reliability and lower system cost are key deliverables for these products,” said Senior Product Manager, Inder Kohli.

When combined with cutting-edge color, and multispectral line scan cameras like the new Linea™ML, the Xtium2-CLHS frame grabbers enable the newest and most demanding vision applications.
