For Quality Assurance in automation and Process Engineering applications
Silicon Software produces off-the-shelf and customized frame grabber solutions for OEM's and machine vision integrators offering a comprehensive portfolio of frame grabbers for Machine Vision. They support six digital interface standards and offer devices for PC plug-in and external image acquisition.


Using highly-parallelized data processing and high bandwidths, their products target the industrial imaging market allowing complex visual inspections and high-speed applications to be implemented in real time using VisualApplets GUI to programme the FPGA processors.

Frame grabbers are offered as internal Plug-in cards or as External devices.

The benefits of using FPGAs and VisualApplets
• Real time high speed solutions. FPGA use in machine vision results in enormous CPU load reduction. As a consequence of the ever increasing bandwidths from modern camera sensors, CPUs and even GPUs are sometimes unable to cope with the large amounts of data and to interprate in real time. Silicon software provides solutions to do so with ease.

• No FPGA hardware programming knowledge is required. FPGA programming can be done by imaging software programmers or qualified machine vision engineers - FPGA hardware programmers are NOTrequired. The graphical, high-level approach provided by VisualApplets makes the task quite straight forward.

• Flexible and adaptable. FPGA applications created with VisualApplets with the Silicon Software FPGA grabbers can be implemented into almost any image processing system.

• Accelerated time to market results due to decreased development time


Two series of framegrabbers are offered that cover different requirements. Both series support a variety of interfaces - Camera Link; Camera Link HS; CoaXPress; GigE Vision; LVDS and Thunderbolt Technology and are as internal plug-in cards or as external devices.
a)
Frame grabbers as image acquisition devices (A series). Read about the A Series
b)
Frame grabbers as image processing devices (V series) which are programmable for individualisation
Series V can be visually programmed (using VisualApplets), offering more FPGA resources and larger memory expansion for carrying out complex image processing. As with Series A, there is no need to load into the CPU for processing. Read about the V Series
 
V-series - Image processing devices
The intelligent frame grabbers in the V series are compatible with VisualApplets programming software. Using these, imaging tasks can be visually programmed and loaded onto the frame grabber after which, these operating sequences can be carried out highly parallel on the frame grabber with minimal latency. Runtime parameters are controlled via the application software. These imaging devices use the comparable A series models’ image acquisition functions but can be equipped with further additional functions (hardware interfaces) as well.
