HALCON Embedded Running on VC Smart Cameras

Brings new possibilities to the machine vision market

The machine vision software HALCON was ported by MVTec for cameras from

Vision Components (VC). From now on, HALCON Embedded runs on VC smart
cameras and brings new possibilities to the machine vision market.

HALCON is the comprehensive standard software with IDE for machine vision
and is used worldwide in many industries. HALCONs flexible software
architecture enables fast application development to solve the demands of
industrial and medical imaging.

For optimal integration to the VC smart camera series, MVTec ported the
complete HALCON 11 software library. The development of the application can
be done conveniently on a standard PC. After uploading, the machine vision
application runs on the smart camera and is able to use HALCONs entire
machine vision functionality.

Smart cameras are widely used for quality and process control in industrial
manufacturing lines. Smart cameras from VC provide sufficient computing
power and direct communication interfaces. The combination of robust
hardware from VC and the general-purpose and reliable HALCON software from
MVTec provides a powerful allaround package for modern machine vision.

About HALCON Embedded
HALCON Embedded means HALCON running on a special platform. HALCON is
portable to various microprocessors/DSPs, operating systems, and compilers.
HALCON Embedded lets software developers exploit the power of the
comprehensive machine vision library HALCON by MVTec on embedded systems.
HALCON Embedded enables the development of the software part of a machine
vision application on a standard platform and thereby greatly eases the
programming of an embedded system. Simply stated: Development is done on a
PC, while the application runs on an embedded system.

BitFlow Introduces 6th Generation Camera Link Frame Grabber: The Axion

BitFlow has offered a Camera Link frame grabbers for almost 15 years. This latest offering, our 6th generation combines the power of CoaXPress with the requirements of Camera Link 2.0. Enabling a single or two camera system to operate at up to 850 MB/S per camera, the Axion-CL family is the best choice for CL frame grabber. Like the Cyton-CXP frame grabber, the Axion-CL leverages features such as the new StreamSync system, a highly optimized DMA engine, and expanded I/O capabilities that provide unprecedented flexibility in routing. There are two options available; Axion 1xE & Axion 2xE. The Axion 1xE is compatible with one base, medium, full or 80-bit camera offering PoCL, Power over Camera Link, on both connectors. The Axion 2xE is compatible with two base, medium, full or 80-bit cameras offering PoCL on both connectors for both cameras. The Axion-CL is a culmination of the continuous improvements and updates BitFlow has made to Camera Link frame grabbers.
