Software eases vision development

VisionBlox 2.0, a vision-specific 32-bit OCX software library, uses Visual Basic or Visual C++ programming environments. When VisionBlox machine-vision controls are added to the Visual Basic toolbar, developers can design vision applications under Microsoft Windows by drawing an object onto an application form. By pairing the VisionBlox OCX software with the 3155 PCI frame grabber from Data Translation (Marlboro, MA), images can be directly captured and processed in host memory. A separate software-development kit is also available with guidelines for writing VisionBlox-compatible hardware drivers for other frame grabbers. VisionBlox requires a Pentium-compatible PC with 24-Mbyte RAM, frame grabber, Visual Basic or Visual C++, and Windows NT. Prices range from $1600 to $3600, depending on quantity.
