Euresys announces a new ruggedized CoaXPress COTS board for embedded video applications

The Coaxlink Duo PCIe/104 is a ruggedized stackable card compliant with the PCIe/104 form factor. It features an extended operating temperature range, optional conformal coating and is able to withstand high levels of shock and vibration. It provides two CoaXPress CXP-6 camera connections and a PCIe 2.0 (Gen 2) x4 bus.

CoaXPress is a powerful standard providing a high speed interface between the camera and the frame grabber. In its simplest form, CoaXPress uses a single coaxial cable to transmit data at up to 625 MB/s, simultaneously transmitting control data and triggers and providing up to 13W of power to the camera. CoaXPress outdoor cameras are available with characteristics that meet the most demanding applications in defense and high-end surveillance applications.
