World’s First Qualified CoaXPress-12 Repeater

May 4, 2020 | Topstory

Available in single, dual and quad formats, the world´s first CXP-12 repeater enables users to double the transmission distance of a signal at 12.5Gbps.
The CXP Repeater uses PoCXP technology, requiring only 430mW from the host and negating the need for an external power supply.

In 2008 the CoaXPress (CXP) standard was first demonstrated at Vision in Stuttgart and Cambridge Electronic became an advisor to the consortium on the choice of connectors for the original CXP V1.0 standard, which was launched in 2011. As innovators of technological advances in the industry, the company started designing connectors to support the new, CXP-10/12, higher data rate transmission bands provided for in version 2.0 of the CXP standard. As part of this design process, they collaborated with CXP consortium members who were responsible for the ongoing development of the CXP standard. The project to produce a CXP Repeater that works at CXP-12 has been in development for many years and since the ratified release of the CXP V2.0 standard in June 2019, it has been full steam ahead on getting the Repeater through the rigorous testing, performed and administered by the Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA), to be able to launch it to market. Cambridge Electronic Industries Technical Director, Peter Fayers, who developed the CXP repeater, said “This is an enabling product, which has emerged from the potential requirement for a longer connection length than would otherwise be possible at the high-speed data rates of CXP-10/12. The CXP repeater now makes this possible whilst complying with V2.0 of the CoaXPress standard. The simplicity of this Plug&Play repeater, with its compact design, allows it to be inserted discreetly into a production environment without redesign of the plant or equipment. Multiple repeaters can also be deployed in a single connection as long as the system designer observes the power and electrical limits of PoCXP (Power-over-CoaXPress).” The CXP Repeater uses PoCXP technology, requiring only 430mW from the host and negating the need for an external power supply. It is available with Micro BNC and BNC connections for speeds up to CXP-12 and also a DIN 1.0/2.3 version for speeds up to CXP-6. All types are available in single, dual and quad-port formats. Accessories such as a wall mounting kit and a bespoke cable assembly service, are also available.
