As the next step, the first CoaXPress Plugfest was held last week at the Image Sensing Show (ISS) in Yokohama, Japan. The Plugfest is the first step in implementing a global validation process for ensuring that commercial products are compliant with the CoaXPress standard. Adimec was one of several imaging system suppliers participating in the PlugFest and submitted the QUARTZ and OPAL cameras. Members of other international industry organizations, the Automated Imaging Association (AIA) and the European Machine Vision Association (EMVA), also participated in the process along with JIIA.
Products that pass the comprehensive evaluation will be able to carry the CXP-certified logo, ensuring system developers that they are fully compliant with the coaxial cable-based interface and offer plug-and-play compatibility for more efficient development, implementation and integration within imaging systems.
Several other imaging vendors have announced CoaXPress products as was highlighted in a recent article from Vision Systems Design Magazine: http://www.vision-systems.com/articles/2011/05/coaxpress-standard-camera-frame-grabber-support.html?sms_ss=linkedin&at_xt=4de542360f032684%2C0&goback=%2Egde_125935_member_56225878.
