BitFlow Upgrades MATLAB Adapter

Upgraded version of its MATLAB adapter, now available as a free download on the BitFlow website

WOBURN, MA, NOVEMBER 7, 2013 -- BitFlow, the machine vision industry's premier manufacturer of frame grabbers, took a further step to simplify the use of MathWorks® MATLAB software by introducing an upgraded version of its MATLAB adapter, now available as a free download on the BitFlow website (www.bitflow.com).


Designed to acquire images from BitFlow frame grabbers directly into MathWorks' MATLAB and Simulink software, the upgraded adapter now provides full support for BitFlow's Software Development Kit (SDK) 5.2 to 5.7, as well as compatibility for all BitFlow frame grabbers, including the recently launched Karbon-CXP and Cyton-CXP CoaXpress models. Additionally, the adapter integrates new capabilities for CLSerial read and write and CXP register access, both implemented via a variety of device-specific properties. Non-default initialization values for device-specific properties can also now be set using the video input format parameter to reduce setup time.

The BitFlow adaptor is a dynamic link library (DLL) that implements the connection between the Image Acquisition Toolbox framework and BitFlow's device drivers to deliver features such as data logging and triggering. The adapter is supported on 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Windows environments.

MATLAB® is a high-level language and interactive environment for numerical computation, visualization, and programming. Using MATLAB, engineers can analyze data, develop algorithms, and create models and applications. The language, tools, and built-in math functions enable you to explore multiple approaches and reach a solution faster than with spreadsheets or traditional programming languages, such as C/C++ or Java™

IntervalZero’s RTX64

IntervalZero's RTX64

RTX64 turns the Microsoft 64-bit Windows operating system into a Real-time operating system (RTOS). RTX64 enhances Windows by providing hard real-time and control capabilities to a general purpose operating system that is familiar to both developers and end users. RTX64 consists of a separate real-time subsystem (RTSS) that schedules and controls all RTSS applications independently of Windows.RTX64 is a key component of the IntervalZero RTOS Platform that comprises x86 and x64 multicore multiprocessors, Windows, and real-time Ethernet (e.g. EtherCAT or PROFINET) to outperform real-time hardware such as DSPs and radically reduce the development costs for systems that require determinism or hard real-time.
