BitFlow is a privately held United States corporation based in Woburn, Massachusetts. BitFlow is a leading producer of analog, digital and Camera Link frame grabbers. The company also provides image analysis and machine vision software and application development software for the imaging industry. BitFlow has shipped tens of thousands of interface boards to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), military, Research and Development, and educational customers since it was founded in 1993.

Software - Application Development Software:

Application Development Software:

BitFlow Software Development Kit (SDK) provides a powerful way to get images into your application from all of BitFlow's frame grabbers. The current SDK release is the result of over 12 years of experience writing drivers for camera interface hardware, and our engineers have years of experience in this same area before they started at BitFlow. The goal has always been the same, produce and easy to use and learn SDK, one that isn't bloated with 1000's of functions that you'll never use, but has enough power and flexibility to help you get your application written quickly and efficiently. The SDK provides APIs that let you program the boards at many different levels. From low level hardware control to high level board-generic circular buffer management, the BitFlow SDK gives exactly as much control as you need, while at the same timing maintain the smallest possible application footprint.

Third Party Imaging Software Drivers:
While some customers prefer to write their own image processing software, many prefer to take advantage of the years of experience offered by companies that specialize in imaging software. BitFlow supports both types of customers with our full featured SDK for customers wanting to do their own coding, and full set of 3rd party drivers for the most popular image processing and machine vision applications. All of BitFlow's third party drivers have been optimize for ease of use, fast acquisition, and minimal CPU usage. We have worked hard to make these drivers deliver images to your application as quickly as the application can take them.

BitFlow has a frame grabber model for almost every camera manufactured. Whether your camera is Camera Link, Differential (LVDS or RS422) or even analog, BitFlow can provide the interface. At the high end is the Karbon-CL, which is a quad Base CL frame grabber that can take in up to 160 bits at 85 MHz, and DMA at speeds of up to 2.0 GB/S. At the affordable end is the R3-CL and R3-Dif, which handle single cameras on the traditional PCI bus. Looking for a PMC solution, check out the R3-CL-PMC, which brings Camera Link into the PMC world.
