Silicon Software Releases “SmartApplets” for Applications
Silicon Software delivers „SmartApplets" hardware programming as partial solution for applications for its V-series frame grabbers. „SmartApplets" is different to onboard image enhancements or image corrections. It covers complex image preprocessing, segmentation or classification tasks, which are processed on the board FPGA in real-time and with a high algorithmic quality. Hereby applications are tremendously accelerated and the load of the host CPU significantly reduced. „SmartApplets" will constantly be extended and improved.
Available partial solutions are among others: object segmentation with Blob analysis, application pre-stage with complex adaptive threshold, classification by huge color lookup tables, compression on single images or even profile processing for measurement applications by laser triangulation method.
Supported frame grabber boards of the V-series cover microEnable IV-series based on PCI Express with CameraLink or GigabitEthernet interface. "SmartApplets" are ready-to-run and only need to be configured after initialization of the frame grabber. (Vision 2009: Booth 4D72, Hall 4)
