CXP-12 Interface Cards – Many Possibilities for Your Applications

With the high-speed CoaXPress 2.0 interface, you can benefit from the maximum performance of modern image sensors and achieve the best results in your applications. The single and multi-channel boards are a perfect fit for our boost cameras, reducing integration effort and costs.

They are ideal for multi-camera systems with high bandwidth, low latency and long cables, and for industries and applications with different camera requirements, e.g. semiconductor and solar industry, display inspection (FPD), print inspection, food inspection and medical technology.

The benefits of the boards combined with the boost cameras and evaluation kits:

  • Interface cards with 1, 2 or 4 channels
  • Basler CXP-12 camera and interface card, accessories and software from a single source – for optimal system design
  • Easy installation (plug-and-play) of camera and board through GenTL and the pylon Camera Software Suite (SDK)
  • High scaling effects, enabling exploitation of the maximum performance of the latest CMOS sensors
  • Precise camera synchronization at lowest latencies

  • Reduced system complexity
  • Latest FPGA technology paired with powerful CoaXPress 2.0 interface
  • Very low CPU load for data transfer and storage
  • Interface cards also included in CXP-12 evaluation kit, for optimal evaluation / design-in phase
  • Attractive price packages for camera and board

Choose an interface card matched directly to your camera, as well as further components like lenses and cables - you get everything from one source! We simplify the selection of suitable components and thus reduce your testing effort and accelerate the integration into your image processing system.

microDisplay X

microDisplay X

During the activation of frame grabbers, microDisplay X helps you test the entire system configuration, select and parameterize applets and perform camera settings.

  • Configure cameras (GenICam) and applets directly in the start window and save or access the configuration
  • Load multiple applets (one applet per board)
  • Enlarge DMA (Direct Memory Access) output window for a large-scale display of an individual DMA output
  • Optimized accuracy of the frame rate information (frames per second) during the acquisition
  • Easy setup of line scan camera systems with line profile and line histogram (provide information on individual pixel values and the distribution of a line)
  • Buffer assigned in applet but not used (if the image section transferred by the camera is too small) is displayed in red in the DMA output window
  • New log window to access general and camera discovery log information, grabber events and system status information at any time

microDiagnostics makes it possible to flash a frame grabber with applets and perform various tests for a successful activation

  • Support with the speedy activation of the frame grabber
  • Test functions simplify an overview of the full system’s functionality
  • Simple camera change by selecting and flashing another applet

More about microDiagnostics


The Software Development Kit (SDK) is an easy way to integrate a frame grabber and camera into the customer’s application while using complex trigger settings, particularly the microEnable frame grabber function, to their full extent. A generic application programming interface (API) enables platform-independent work. Of course, the SDK also helps system builders develop their own C/C++/C# or Python applications.

  • Quick and easy integration of frame grabbers into your application and software environment
  • Flexible for the use of different programming languages (C++, C#, Python)
  • Reduced development times for projects

VisualApplets Expert

VisualApplets Expert

Experienced users have the option of applying existing hardware code, debugging the design under runtime conditions and creating paths to parameters in hierarchical structures.

  • With the custom library, system builders apply their image processing modules programmed in VHDL or Verilog (VHDL libraries) in VisualApplets as generic operators, thus preserving their preparatory work.
  • The debugging library enables enhanced debugging to detect programming errors, deadlocks and bandwidth problems and to increase the design stability.
  • The parameters library offers users tools to change even those parameters that might be deeply embedded in the design’s hierarchical structures. The changes are automatically and consistently updated during the runtime.

VisualApplets Libraries

VisualApplets Libraries

VisualApplets libraries comprise multiple operator libraries which expand the operators’ scope with valuable image processing functions, such as those for segmentation, classification and compression.

  • Segmentation/classification: These operators are used to segment and define objects in images and assign characteristics to them.
  • Compression: The JPEG operator makes it possible to execute the JPEG image compression directly on the FPGA of the vision hardware to reduce image data.

VisualApplets Protection

VisualApplets Protection

To prevent the use of proprietary applets on external frame grabbers and thus protect intellectual property from outside access, the applets and frame grabbers can each be securely encoded with a lock.

  • Applets and frame grabbers are each securely encoded with a lock.
  • Two protective mechanisms guarantee maximum security.
