BitFlow Announces Integration of NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Module with Its Cyton and Claxon CoaXPress Frame Grabbers

BitFlow announced today that it has successfully integrated the unprecedented computing power of the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Orin module, which can perform 275 trillion operations per second (TOPS), with the lightning-fast data rates of its CoaXPress (CXP) frame grabbers.

When combined with the NVIDIA AGX Orin Developer Kit, this cost-effective platform empowers engineers to prototype complex machine vision and autonomous inspection applications, leveraging AI accelerated image processing while simultaneously supporting up to four CoaXPress (CXP) cameras and multiple concurrent AI application pipelines. Groundbreaking new applications are more easily developed that augment rule-based machine vision with image-based analysis, making it possible to move beyond “pass/fail” to tasks like image classification, image segmentation, and object detection.

Once proof-of-concept is established, a production model can move forward utilizing an Advantech AIR-030 AI Inference System Box featuring PCI Express x16 and based on the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin. As a result of this innovation, Time to Market and associated development costs are significantly reduced.

50 GB Data Transfer

BitFlow CXP frame grabbers connect directly to the Jetson AGX Orin via a built-in x16 PCIe slot. Image data may then be transferred at speeds up to 50 GB per second from CXP cameras to the NVIDIA Ampere GPU architecture — much faster than what NVIDIA Jetson users are typically limited to using USB3 or GigE Vision cameras. BitFlow CXP frame grabbers DMA directly into the embedded GPU memory for image capture, pre-processing, and machine learning inference, shifting the load from the host computer to avoid CPU overhead.

Besides faster transfer speeds, the CoaXPress interface allows a single cable to carry all data, control, triggering, and up to 13W of power to connected cameras at lengths as far as 100 meters. CoaXPress eliminates the need for multiple cables and a local power supply, therefore giving the system integrator far more flexibility for their prototype designs.

Seamless integration between the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin and BitFlow frame grabbers is achieved through BitFlow’s Linux AArch64 SDK. With the SDK being universal, not only is BitFlow's full line of CXP frame grabbers (Cyton and Claxon families) supported, but additionally the BitFlow Axion Camera Link family is an option for customers.
