Why Silicon Software


Silicon Software is one of the international leaders in Machine Vision technologies.

Our innovative product lines offer a broad range of applications and our service offers further possibilities of customer-specific adaptation and solutions.

The growing demand for improvements in automation and quality inspection requires advanced, more flexible and high-performance solutions.
For this purpose Silicon Software develops and produces image processing boards and provides individual OEM solutions with software based FPGA processors programming. Based on this technology we realize solutions in the field of real-time image processing and industrial use.

There are at least three good reasons why to work with Silicon Software

Leader in the development of frame grabbers
Leader in the programming of FPGAs for image processing
Leader in image processing solutions for the industry

Our Partners esteem the close collaboration

China Daheng Group Image Vision Technology Branch

Our company has a close partnership with Silicon Software for many years as the company provides remarkable hardware and software products and a professional support. VisualApplets is a highly evolved product and unique in the image processing market as software and application engineers can quickly and easily program FPGAs without hardware programming knowledge. This is why Silicon Software products are widely used in China. I look forward to our deeper cooperation in the future, aiming at achieving a mutually beneficial and win-win partnership.

China Daheng Group, Inc.

Stemmer Imaging GmbH

We esteem the collaboration with Silicon Software for the wide-ranging and high-quality array of products, with VisualApplets as an industry-wide outstanding USP, and the particular expertise in the image processing paired with a fast and exemplary support.

Christian Faßbender, Product Manager

Pyramid Imaging, Inc.

With Silicon Software’s product portfolio, I see a very unique combination of technologies that helps our customers reach their previously unattainable performance targets. With VisualApplets, which is used to graphically program any FPGA-based image processing device such as frame grabbers, 3rd party cameras and imaging devices, we see great potential for FPGA accelerated vision solutions as well as embedded vision solutions using their technology in industrial as well as non-industrial environments. For Pyramid Imaging, Silicon Software is a reliable partner with outstanding and unique expertise.

Setting benchmarks and standards in image processing for the past 20 years

The history of Silicon Software began in reality in Geneva at the CERN, where the worldwide biggest particle accelerator is located. The concepts developed at that time for the realization of the wished demanding image processing solutions form until today the basis for the existing hard- and software portfolio.
PC plug-in cards were developed as frame grabber series, which contain programmable FPGAs. For the programming of the FPGAs VisualApplets was created, a graphical development environment still market-leading until today. It can be used to create image processing applications without hardware programming knowledge in short time – for frame grabbers as well as for further FPGA hardware such as cameras, vision sensors and scanners.

Interview on 20 Year‘s Jubilee


Our employees are pretty much in agreement about our company's recipe for success


“Sounds funny – but it’s often the case: the tasks that others can’t find a solution tour the ones that are the most fun for us.“


“If we’re supposed to develop something for clients, we all agree really quickly: it should be done quite ingeniously …“


“How does the saying go? ´There’s no such thing as impossible.´ Goes for us as well: no one around here gives up that quickly …“


“Actually, we don’t like perfectionists. But in the end, everyone wants it done perfectly.“

Success Driven

“There’s one topic that interests everyone most: which projects were we able to land?“


“We can make mistakes here – as long as we show that we’re ready to do it better the next time.“
