With VisualApplets Embedder from Silicon Software, the FPGA image processing functionality from VisualApplets can now be embedded within imaging devices and cameras. VisualApplets Embedder makes VisualApplets compatible on any third party FPGA-based hardware, making the FPGAs freely programmable to realize individual image processing applications. One such product is the Baumer LX cameras with VisualApplets, which was honored with the Platinum Level Award at the Vision Systems Design 2016 Innovators Awards Program.
Programming the FPGA directly in the device enables it to execute portions of the image preprocessing, which reduces data load and system costs. This product, Mike Faulkner, Director of Business Development and Sales, told me at VISION 2016, was designed as a result of market feedback.
"Many imaging device OEMs want to use FPGAs in their products, but the time-to-market aspect is critical, and VisualApplets Embedder dramatically improves the time-to-market in shortened development time and in a faster response to market demands," he said.
