MVTec Software GmbH has announced that its Halcon comprehensive, flexible, general-purpose software for machine vision applications now interfaces to the micro-Enable III frame grabbers from Silicon Software GmbH. The frame grabbers feature high-quality processing and low latency. The reprogrammable onboard image processor enables real-time preprocessing by hardware-based algorithms, freeing the CPU for subsequent software-based image processing. The frame grabbers also are supported by MVTec’s ActivVisionTools family of software tools. High-speed applications based on area- and line-scan cameras can be easily and quickly accommodated.
