Introducing SDK for NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Development Kit
BitFlow has released a Linux AArch64 (64-bit ARM) SDK that enables seamless integration of BitFlow frame grabbers with the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier Development Kit.
Donal Waide, Director of Sales for BitFlow, states, “Many of our customers are already using GPU solutions such as NVIDIA for image processing so adding this option to the already large BitFlow suite of adapters was a natural progression for the company. BitFlow has been supporting Linux for several years across a variety of flavors.”
Added Waide, “BitFlow was one of the first frame grabber companies to support NVIDIA’s GPUDirect for Video technology. BitFlow and NVIDIA have worked together for a number of years already.” Read more ›
Shipping its First CoaXPress 2.0 Frame Grabber
BitFlow pushed limits further by shipping its new Claxon-CXP4, a quad CoaXPress-12 PCIe Gen 3 frame grabber that accelerates video transmission speed to 12.5 Gb/s — or twice as fast as the current CXP 1.1 standard. Now in full production, the new frame grabber will be shipping this month and available through BitFlow’s international distributor network.
“While the Claxon is not the first CXP 2.0 frame grabber on the market, it is certainly one of most stable and feature-rich, since our engineering team built the full CXP 2.0 specification into it rather than pick and choose what capabilities the customer was permitted to use,” said Donal Waide, … Read more ›
New SWIR line scan camera enables defect detection beyond the visible
Teledyne DALSA announces its first short-wave infrared (SWIR) line scan camera for machine vision. The new Linea SWIR features a cutting-edge InGaAs sensor in a compact package suitable for a variety of applications including food and packaged good inspection, recycling, mineral sorting and solar and silicon wafer inspection.

CCD Image Sensor Technology Plays Key Role in COVID-19 Diagnostics
Teledyne E2V Teledyne is supplying high performance charged coupled devices (CCDs) for COVID-19 diagnostic scientific instruments. These highly sensitive image sensors are used for low-light imaging applications such as microscopy and other scientific imaging techniques deployed for research and diagnostic testing of COVID-19.
In the past few weeks, the UK CCD Fabrication team have been producing hundreds of CCD77-358 devices that will be designed into camera systems to support COVID-19 diagnostics.. Read more ›
New compact Coaxlink CXP-12 frame grabbers
We are proud to announce that we are expanding our CXP-12 frame grabber range with the addition of the Coaxlink Mono CXP-12 and Duo CXP-12. These are one- and two-connection CoaXPress 2.0 frame grabbers complementing the four-connection Coaxlink Quad CXP-12, already available.
These new compact, frame grabbers pack a lot of power in a low-profile PCIe card design. As a single CXP-12 connection provides more bandwidth than Camera Link Full, they are a perfect upgrade for most applications. In addition, the Coaxlink CXP-12 range supports extra-long 40-meter cables, just using standard coaxial cables. Acquire images from the fastest and highest resolution … Read more ›
Switchgear Viewing Systems for Power Grids: Safe, Live Switch and Breaker Imaging
“Keeping the distance”: how our switchgear viewing systems improve occupational safety!
Reliable switch device status is a safety requirement in power grids. However, hard-to-access viewports and sparks from switching processes make direct visual observation difficult and dangerous in power plants today. Live monitoring of switches using specialized cameras minimizes risks to human operators by monitoring switches from a safe distance, either locally using a portable video unit or remotely centralized from the control room… Read more ›
FOV Micro Measurement Microscope 4.0 with foldable stand
Opto presents FOV Micro Measurement Microscope 4.0 with foldable stand. The new ultra-compact digital Micro Measurement Microscope from Opto is the perfect tool for on-site measurements in production.
The Machine Vision Microscope professionally digitizes quality where it counts. The sensor setup is robust, plug-and-play, easy to use, and with a high-end optic and camera integrated.

The free OptoViewer software presents crosshairs, allows documentation, and basic measurements, whereas the market leading Measurement Software M3 from Metlogix makes it a High-End Measurement device with proven functionality. Read more ›
pco.panda 26 & pco.edge 26 sCMOS cameras: high 26 MPix resolution, true global shutter
With our pco.panda 26 and pco.edge 26 cameras you get the high resolution and sCMOS sensor technology needed for a multitude of microscopy applications. These include, inter alia, high-content screening, digital pathology and many more.
Both models provide you a 5120 x 5120 pixel resolution and a small 2.5 x 2.5 µm² pixel size. Those aspects are excellent for achieving the maximum level of spatial resolution and it even applies for microscopy imaging with low magnification. Furthermore, you can achieve an exceptionally low readout noise and dark current thanks to the true charge domain global shutter. Read more ›
Discover the 1 mm Optical Filters
As an optical element the filter must fulfill some requirements to ensure that it has no impact on the resolution of the complete system. The quarter wave wavefront distortion also ensures that the MTF is not affected.
Our 1 mm thin filters with a high surface quality are developed to be placed between lens and sensor. Equipped with the Schneider-Kreuznach typical coating with high transmission and steep slopes, they are the ideal choice for challenging machine vision applications. These 1 mm thin filters are provided with an ultra-low reflection coating, important for e.g. traffic surveillance. The wavelength tolerance of only +/- 1 % makes them a preferred choice for metrology systems. Optimized for common LEDs used in machine vision, the filters are ideal for automated inspection systems as food & beverage control or logistics. Read more ›
