CoaXPress Device IP Package for Intel FPGA

CoaXPress® is a digital interface for high-speed video transmission, and the standard was established by JIIA (Japan Industrial Imaging Association).
Using a 75Ω coaxial cable, CoaXPress not only achieves high-speed transmission of up to 12.5Gbps per cable from the camera to the host, but also enables the transmission of control packets and triggers from the host to the camera, as well as the supply of power.
As an upper layer of the CoaXPress standard, it is necessary to support the GenICam™ (Generic Interface for Cameras) standard.
We have a lot of experience in supporting GenICam for GigE Vision® and USB3 Vision®, and our CoaXPress IP comes with a software library that makes it easy to implement the GenICam standard.


  • Supports CoaXPress Version 2.0
  • Up to 12.5 Gbps (Version 2.0) per lane
  • Supports up to 4 connections (lanes)
  • Supports up to 4 Streams
  • Includes a library that supports the main features of GenICam and CoaXPress
  • Automatic XML generation eliminates the need to write XML manually and the risk of Syntax Error
  • Tested under “Inter Operability Test” by JIIA

Device Resource Utilization

Example of resource usage for a single IP


Reference Design Software Architecture

  • Key features of GenICam and CoaXPress are provided as a pre-tested library
  • XML files are generated from the GenICam Device Library based on the parameters set in the GenICam Device Firmware

Demo Configuration / Evaluation System

  • The IP Package includes a reference design that allows you to verify the operation of Macnica CoaXPress 2.0 FMC Card in combination with the Intel Arria 10 GX FPGA Development Kit or Cyclone 10 GX FPGA Development Kit. The reference design has a pattern generator as a video source and can display video using a commercially available grabber board. It is also compatible with GenICam and can be controlled from the grabber side to switch patterns and video formats.
    An evaluation package is also available. Please contact us for details.
