Introducing The Cyton Platform

BitFlow started from scratch when we designed the Cyton. First we gave it a Gen 2.0 PCIe bus, effectively doubling the speed. Second, for even more efficiency, we redesigned our DMA engine from the ground up to handle the increasing demands of modern machine vision applications. The new engine squeezes every ounce of DMA bandwidth out of a busy PC platform, while using zero CPU resources.


The Virtual Frame Grabber

The Cyton-CXP4 can be configured in many different ways. It can acquire from one quad link CXP-6 camera (total data rate: 25 Gb/S) , or four single link CXP-6 cameras, or anything in between. The Cyton-CXP2 supports on dual link CXP-6 camera or to single link CXP-6 cameras. When acquiring from multiple cameras, each camera is attached to its own virtual frame grabber. This allows independent control of each camera.

CoaXPress High Speed Uplink

The Cyton-CXP offers an optional high speed connector that can run the full 6.25 Gb/S from the frame grabber to the camera. The can be used in situations that demand for bulk uploads to the camera or high precision trigger accuracy beyond the current 20 MHz uplink’s capabilities.
