Neon-CLB Simplify your industrial, medical, or semiconductor imaging application with BitFlow's Neon-CLB, the easiest to use and most reliable Base/PoCL Camera Link frame grabber available anywhere. The Neon-CLB captures images at up to the camera's highest frame/data rate, with precision image acquisition suitable for the most demanding applications. The Neon-CLB is designed for the OEM that needs the performance of the PCI Express bus, BitFlow's famous industrial quality, and one of the lowest price points in the industry. The Neon-CLB can acquire from ALL Base CL cameras and has enough industrial I/O to handle even the most complicated synchronization tasks. Adding the Neon-CLB to your application is simple with our SDK, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. The SDK provides high level APIs for sophisticated buffer management and low-level direct access to the board for speedy custom control. If you need the simplest, most reliable, and best performing Base Camera Link and PoCL frame grabber, call BitFlow today to get our OEM-priced Neon-CLB, BitFlow's 4th generation of robust, industrial Camera Link imaging products.

Neon-CLD The Neon family is growing. It started with the Neon-CLB, the world's first PoCL frame grabber that provided Base Camera Link acquisition on an OEM priced platform. Now comes the Neon-CLD which supports two cameras on the same low cost x4 PCIe platform. Both cameras can be completely independent with different resolutions, frame rates, triggering modes, etc. Or both cameras can be perfectly synchronized. The Neon-CLD is incredibly flexible and powerful, yet it can substantially lower your system cost. Not only is the Neon-CLD very aggressively priced, but there are additional savings from connecting two cameras to one frame grabber. Adding the Neon-CLD to your application is simple with our SDK, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Develop your application using our sophisticated buffer management APIs, or download our free drivers, available for most 3rd party machine vision packages. The Neon-CLD is software compatible with the single camera Neon-CLB, thus making the number of cameras in a system a manufacturing time decision. If you need the simplest, most reliable, and best performing dual Base Camera Link/PoCL frame grabber, call BitFlow today to get our Neon-CLD, BitFlow's 4th generation of robust, industrial CL imaging products.

Neon-CLQ The Neon family has grown again. It started with the Neon-CLB, the world's first PoCL frame grabber that provided Base Camera Link acquisition on an OEM priced platform. Next came the Neon-CLD which supports two cameras on the same low cost x4 PCIe platform. The newest member, the Neon-CLQ, supports capture from four cameras simultaneously. All cameras can be run independently with different resolutions, frame rates, triggering modes, etc. Or all cameras can be perfectly synchronized. The Neon-CLQ is incredibly flexible and powerful, yet it can substantially lower your system cost. The Neon-CLQ only requires a single PCIe slot, yet provides four camera interfaces plus I/O. This means the Neon-CLQ hits the highest density of cameras per slot of any frame grabber on the market, while bringing the cost per camera down to unprecedented lows. At this price per per camera, the Neon-CLQ can compete with main stream network cameras, while still providing all the robust industrial features expected when using a frame grabber. Adding the Neon-CLQ to your application is simple with our SDK, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems. Develop your application using our sophisticated buffer management APIs, or download our free drivers, available for most 3rd party machine vision packages. The Neon-CLQ is software compatible with the single camera Neon-CLB, thus making the number of cameras in a system a manufacturing time decision. If you need the simplest, most reliable, and best performing quad Base Camera Link/PoCL frame grabber, call BitFlow today to get our Neon-CLQ, BitFlow's 4th generation of robust, industrial CL imaging products.

AXN-PC2-CL-2E BitFlow has been making Camera Link frame grabbers since 1999. With each successive generation of frame grabbers, BitFlow has improved the quality, flexibility and robustness of their interfaces. Meanwhile, much has changed on the backend; PCI to PCIe, Gen 1 to Gen 2, etc. Also the Camera Link Specification had been continuously evolving: 80-bit (10-tap) mode was added, Power over Camera Link (PoCL), new connectors, new tap formats. Even though the specification has been around a long time, it is still one of the simplest, efficient and least expensive ways to get camera data into a computer. It also benefits from 100s of thousands of pieces of CL equipment sold worldwide. BitFlow has been on top of all these changes and has continuously improved and updated their Camera Link frame grabbers. The Axion-CL is the culmination of all of these improvements, the most powerful CL frame grabber BitFlow has ever manufactured. The Axion-CL also benefits from other products in BitFlow's line up. The Axion-CL uses the Cyton-CXP's backend: the StreamSync DMA engine and buffer manager. A brand new PCIe Gen 2 interface, with DMA optimized for modern (fully loaded, fully busy) computers.

Axion1xB

The Axion-CL is the most powerful CL frame grabber BitFlow has ever manufactured. A natural addition to this family was obvious…a CL Base version. The Axion xB series will be replacing the Neon series of Camera Link frame grabbers.

The Axion-CL also benefits from other products in BitFlow’s line up. The Axion-CL uses the Cyton-CXP’s backend: the StreamSync DMA engine and buffer manager. A brand new PCIe Gen 2 interface, with DMA optimized for modern (fully loaded, fully busy) computers.

Moving from the Neon family to the Axion family is simple. No need to make changes to your code, just recompile with the latest SDK. If you are using a 3rd party application, such as Cognex Vision Pro or LabVIEW, just download the latest driver and your program will already be supported. The same application can support both the Axion and the Neon family (as well as our CXP line of frame grabbers).

Connectors on the Axion 1xB are the same as those on the Neon CLB, so your existing cable infrastructure will not need to be changed.
