CoaXPress PCIe/104 configuration for military & industrial imaging

January 02, 2017 // By Graham Prophet
ADL Embedded Solutions (San Diego, California and Siegen, Germany) offers the ADLVIS-1660, a 2-channel CXP-6 (6.25 Gbps) board solution designed for rugged, small form factor (SFF) CoaXPress applications.

A total 1,250 MB/sec effective camera bandwidth is suited for high-performance imaging applications, and is aimed at high-speed machine vision, security and surveillance, hyperspectral imaging for agricultural, scientific and industrial uses, military EOIR, very high-resolution line-scan image acquisition, and high frame-rate motion analysis and recording.


The ADLVIS-1660 comprises a PCIe/104 multi-board stack including CXP-6 module, Quad Intel i7-4700EQ processor, and embedded ATX 150W power supply. The ADLVIS-1660 includes small-outline coaxial cabling for DIN1.0/2.3 connectors optimized for SFF embedded use. It supports PoCXP, is GENICAM compliant and includes Euresys Memento event logging for efficient application software development. A second CXP-6 module can be added to support four 1xCXP-6 cameras or two 2xCXP-6 cameras.


“The ADLVIS-1660 brings the benefits of high-performance CXP-6 to many rugged use scenarios previously neglected, including MIL-STD applications...[with the] ability to provide power and data at CXP-6 speeds up to 40 metres and CXP-3 up to 100 metres,” according to Martin Kristof, Managing Director of ADL Embedded Solutions GmbH.
