EyeVision software supports CoaXPress for high-speed image transfer
Germany’s EVT Eye Vision Technology GmbH’s (EVT) EyeVision image-processing software now also supports CoaXPress cameras.
This latest addition to the newly revised software means that users not only have at their disposal the standard PC interfaces, such as USB, FireWire (IEEE1394), GigE and CameraLink, but also the CoaXPress BUS. This enhancement provides users with a high-speed interface for transferring images when using boards from ActiveSilicon, says EVT.
CoaXPress combines the elegant simplicity of coaxial cable with high-speed serial data technology, and according to the company, the software and CoaXPress offer an unbeatable combination when it comes to high-speed image data transfer.
There are no changes to the programming interface. For example, a sensor with a digital signal processing (DSP) unit or a high-end PC with a CoaXPress interface for image capture use the same programming interface.
EyeVision software is programmed easily using drag-and-drop functionality. Users simply drag a command icon from the toolbox into the program editor and configure the program for a component part. The inspection program is then ready to start.
EyeVision software not only offers a graphical user-interface for controlling and monitoring cameras, but it is also capable of quickly and efficiently performing complex image-processing operations. The intuitive user-interface enables inspection programs to be created and configured quickly and easily.
