EMVA welcomes new member:


Chronocam’s technology strategy is built on a straight-forward premise: in order to enable a safer, more efficient world though the capabilities of machine vision, we need to re-think traditional vision and processing. Our technology introduces a new computer vision paradigm based on how the human eye and brain work. Our approach significantly improves the performance and power efficiency of how computer vision can be implemented in a wide range of products and applications that improve the convenience and safety of our daily lives. Chronocam addresses head on the obstacles faced by previous generations of camera technology to meet the needs of modern applications in automotive, consumer, IoT, and industrial products.

EMVA welcomes new member:

Image Munich based Kortiq is focusing on easy-to-use, small. efficient, scalable and flexible FPGA based machine learning hardware accelerators to enable fast and efficient implemention of algorithms and methodologies in artifical intelligence applications. Kortiq’s first design, the AIScale convolutional neural network accelerator, provides low cost edge machine learning inference for the embedded vision industry. AIScale makes it easy for system designers to implement machine learning functionality, such as image recognition, and helps enabling this new technology in their industrial embedded vision- or robotics systems. The novel way of mapping calculations to hardware resources in combination with highly advanced compression methods, which offer a significant reduction in required external memory transfer size and power, enable a fast turnaround from idea to product, with having an efficient and economic solution in mind.

SILICON SOFTWARE – 20th company jubilee

Image Silicon Software GmbH, manufacturer of frame grabbers and intelligent image processing solutions, celebrates 20th year of continued business success in 2017. In September 1997, Dr. Klaus-Henning Noffz and Dr. Ralf Lay founded the company as a University of Mannheim spin-off. From the beginning, the two Managing Directors designed frame grabbers as versatile image acquisition boards combining FPGA technology and their programming expertise, to what later became known as VisualApplets, the graphical software environment for FPGA development. Creating intelligent solutions for complex applications in all industries with image processing in real-time, has been the motto of the company since its beginning. Read more ›

Case Study

Comact’s innovative 360° wood inspection optimizes accuracy, speed and profits

ImageSawmills face a lot of work and expense to get each bundle of
wood that might go into a new deck, fence or building properly
prepared for sale. For example, planks have to be measured, cut
precisely, grouped by color and accurately graded in appearance
from 0-3 based on a complex series of rules taking into account
such factors as size of knots, grub holes and cracks.

The grading process can be a drain on both human and financial resources, and many of today’s sawmills might be missing out on opportunities for optimizing their throughput and profitability.

QX series with 12 megapixel at 335 fps and 10 GigE interface

Image With the QX series cameras, Baumer sets new standards for high-speed image processing. With 12 megapixel resolution at 335 fps in Burst Mode, the cameras capture fine details and defects extremely precisely in high-dynamic processes. The 10 GigE interface continuously transfers data with a high bandwidth of 1.1 GB/s. This makes the cameras ideal for applications that require very high frame rates for short sequences.
As a result they are suitable, for example, for process analysis in industrial applications, for living cell analysis in medical applications, for scientific research or for motion analysis in sports. Read more ›

BITFLOW targets USB 3.1 vision users with new Aon-CXP CoaXPress frame grabber

Image BitFlow, a manufacturer of machine vision components used in robotics, automation systems and quality control, recently introduced its Aon-CXP CoaXPress single-link frame grabber that is fast gaining supporters among former USB 3.1 users.
Although the Aon-CXP is inexpensive and compact, it packs all the power of larger, multi-link CXP frame grabbers, delivering up to 6.25 Gb/S worth of data over the link, or almost twice the real world data rate of the USB3 Vision standard. Read more ›
