Chameleon SA Stand Alone CoaXPress Camera Simulator – Industry’s first stand-alone Camera Simulator supporting CoaXPress standard.

Chameleon Stand Alone Overview

The Chameleon SA is the industry’s first stand-alone CoaXPress 2.0 Camera Simulator. This simulator is capable of generating video streams and test patterns of up to 4 CoaXPress 2.0 links in single, dual and quad modes. Each link supports standard CoaXPress 2.0 bitrates up to 12.5 Gbps. This product is ideally suited for development of industrial, defense and aerospace Machine Vision Systems and applications. The Chameleon can easily transmit generic test patterns, customer’s specific pre-processed data or custom video streams on the CoaXPress 2.0 links. It also provides GPIO for machine control signals, such as triggers, shaft encoders, exposure control and general I/O, which can be simulated together with the video streams. The simulator enables transmitting the video streams from on-board memory as well as run time uploading the streams from computer memory.
The Chameleon uses standard DIN connectors as an interface to the Frame Grabber board and standard headers for general purpose I/O. The Simulator utilizes Thunderbolt 3 interface for communication with Host PC for video uploading and configuration.
