How It All Began – and Where We Are Today
It all began in 1997, when two former fellow students Dr. Ralf Lay and Dr. Klaus-Henning Noffz decided to make their mark on FPGA programming in the development of innovative frame grabbers, using their extensive know-how, and to start a company based in Mannheim.
Thanks to the release of VisualApplets in 2005, Silicon Software succeeded in developing a programming tool with a graphic environment that is highly respected in the industrial imaging market and that has been recognized with the VISION Award. Since then, VisualApplets has served as the standard for those companies who wish to port their own image processing algorithms onto FPGAs.
Silicon Software is an independent company of Basler.
