The relentless trend for higher speeds in demanding (machine) vision application results in the need for even faster cameras – thus initiating a new generation of sensors. These new CMOS sensors deliver large resolution images at impressively high speed, producing a huge increase in data rates. This amount of data goes far beyond the capabilities of established interfaces, such as Camera Link, GigE Vision, and USB3. The CoaXPress standards support these growing bandwidth requirements for the next decade, AND also satisfies the additional requirements for longer cable length, greater cable reliability and flexibility, real-time behavior, and cost efficiency. Due to the use of standard coaxial cable and the bandwidth, CoaXPress is not only interesting for machine vision applications but also highly suitable for applications in the healthcare and global security markets where use of coaxial cable is prevalent.

In the blogs on this page we describe features and technologies in relation to CoaXPress.
