June 22, 2020 — Matrox Imaging announced additions to the Matrox Rapixo series of frame grabbers with the release of the Matrox Rapixo CL Pro, with support for the Camera Link cameras on the market.
Matrox Rapixo CL Pro delivers onboard image processing offload to field-programmable gate array (FPGA) devices, frame-rate image capture, support for extended cable lengths, and image acquisition trusted in Matrox Imaging frame grabbers.
Matrox Rapixo CL Pro models—along with other Pro models in the Matrox Rapixo series—make use of an FPGA device from the Xilinx Kintex-7 family, directly integrating control, format, and stream logic onto the frame grabber itself. Paired with the Matrox FDK, a powerful development kit, the Pro models support development of custom FPGA configurations to relieve the host system of intensive image-processing functions.
An enhanced iteration of the Matrox Radient eV series of Camera Link boards, Matrox Rapixo CL Pro capably handle image capture from an extensive range of devices, whether a single low data-rate Camera Link device to multiple maximum-bandwidth Camera Link cameras. Users can interface with up to four Base or two Full/80-bit mode Camera Link cameras at up to 85 MHz on a single board. With integrated Power-over-Camera Link (PoCL) and extended
