International Vision Standards Meeting in Chicago, IVSM 2015, for updates on CoaXPress, GigE Vision, USB 3.0 and more

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Tue, Nov 10, 2015

Over 60 imaging and machine vision professionals from 36 leading machine vision companies worldwide met under the support of the global Machine Vision associations AIA, EMVA, JIIA, VDMA and CMVU (jointly referred to as G3) in the middle of October in Chicago for this years fall International Vision Standards Meeting (IVSM). The meeting was hosted by Components Express and involved discussions on the development of current standards including the GenICam software standard, and the CoaXPress, USB 3.0 Vision, Camera Link, Camera Link HS, and GigE Vision standards. In addition, a plugfest was held, where products and their compatibility to the standards were tested.

CoaXPress no longer just a cool concept - enabling throughput increases in machine vision

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Thu, Oct 8, 2015

Until recently CoaXPress was considered just a nice possibility by system designers and integrators.  It seemed to offer advantages in speed with long, flexible, inexpensive cables, but many systems were not ready for the change since a brand new standard is intimidating.  CoaXPress has matured rapidly with many new frame grabbers and cameras on the market.  This has helped to build the necessary trust and understanding for design consideration.  Also, metrology and inspection systems are looking to make a performance leap with higher resolution cameras

Adimec earns CoaXPress version 1.1 compliance certification (and version 1.0 compatible) for Machine Vision and Global Security cameras

Posted by Gretchen Alper on Wed, Nov 5, 2014

The new members of Adimec's QUARTZ (Q-12A180) and TMX-DHD (TMX7-DHD) camera series have been certified as fully compliant with the CoaXPress interface standard version 1.1 AND are compatible with version 1.0. The cameras passed a comprehensive electrical compliancy test on October 1st and then the CoaXPress Plugfest on October 8th.  While the cameras implement the second generation CoaXPress V1.1 25Gb/s CoaXPress Quad interface, they are also fully backward compatible to existing V1.0 frame grabbers. There are many new CoaXPress compliant products, and they are listed on the Japanese Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA) web site.
