The biennial Automate show in Chicago is the largest event for automation solutions in North America and is organized by the American Association for Advancing Automation (A3). At booth 8533, we will demonstrate how tightly coupled hardware and software can create big customer benefits. The demonstrators based on preprogrammed and graphically programmable frame grabbers are suitable for both industrial and non-industrial applications that require sophisticated image processing systems.

The first demonstrator presents the “CNN ready” frame grabber microEnable 5 deepVCL for Camera Link cameras. Its FPGA processor incorporates a trained neural network as a graphical CNN operator in a dataflow design. The operator has been developed and optimized for the inspection task using the graphical FPGA development environment VisualApplets. The frame grabber acquires images from a high-speed line scan camera while simultaneously offering high reliability real-time prediction accuracy in a difficult classification application.

Let us show you what you cannot see!

The second demonstrator, in collaboration with our Canadian partner Skye Automation, presents a multispectral application where an NED linescan camera is exposed to a unique UV/visible/IR high frequency modulated linelight from Metaphase. Visitors will receive small cards with text printed using invisible UV and IR inks, which the demonstrator makes visible. The application is processed at high speed with low latencies using the microEnable 5 VCL frame grabber.
