Imperx has announced a series of cameras that use the CoaXPress interface standard. The public royalty-free standard, administered by the Japan Industrial Imaging Association, supports image data rates up to 6.25 Gb/s using a single coaxial cable. The company's new ICX cameras are based on the interface. Providing resolutions ranging from VGA to 29 megapixels, they capture images at up to 260 fps. The CoaXPress interface offers high-speed, point-to-point serial communications for transmitting still images or video from a camera to a host system, typically a frame grabber. It provides a 20-Mb/s uplink for communications and control from host to camera. The interface offers precise triggering capability and fixed low latency, and it can provide up to 13 W of 24-V power to the camera.
