Frame Grabbers Accelerate Data Rates Over Long Cables

Teledyne DALSA’s Xtium2 for the PCIe Gen3 platform embarks as the company’s next generation high-performance family of frame grabbers. The family starts two frame grabber boards featuring AIA’s Camera Link HS interface: the Xtium2-CLHS PX8 and Xtium2-CLHS FX8. The series will also provide support to upcoming and existing interfaces like CoaXPress (ver 2.0) and Camera Link.


The Xtium2-CLHS PX8 features seven lanes operating at 10 Gb/s using CLHS X-Protocol and can deliver host transfer bandwidth more than 6.8 GB/s. It supports a CX4 connector that is Active Optical Cables (AOC) ready. The AOC cables use fiber cable to deliver cable lengths greater than 15 meters.

New VNA technologies enable mmWave broadband testing to 220 GHz, helping researchers and engineers to overcome test challenges and simplify mmWave testing.

Application development in the mmWave frequencies is growing. Broadband testing over hundreds of GHz of bandwidth is subject to repeatability/accuracy deficits, and engineers demand solutions to help overcome challenges and simplify mmWave testing.


The Xtium2-CLHS FX8 supports up to four bidirectional SPF+ modules to deliver up to 4.0 GB/s of image acquisition and host transfer speeds of up to 6.8 GB/s. The low-cost SPF+ module and fiber optic cables help extend cable lengths to 100 meters. In addition, the Xtium2-CLHS FX8 can support multiple independent CLHS cameras.
