LightBridge – The flexible solution for Factory Vision
How to optimize the performance of your Factory Vision with LightBridge and also save costs.


Silicon Software interview @ VISION 2014: New product release of Silicon Software’s image acquisition and processing product for automation. Marketing director Michael Noffz explains the new Factory Vision series LightBridge (german language)

LightBridge – Overcoming space and time
Dr. Klaus-Henning Noffz held a speech about LightBridge frame grabbers at the Vision 2014 trade fair. LightBridge frame grabbers are connected from outside to the PC by an optical fiber. Noffz explains the respective LightBridge types for the different camera models.


Dr. Ralf Lay, CTO at Silicon Software GmbH, on embedded vision on the “65th Heidelberg Image Processing Forum” in July 2017 (German language).

Welcome to the World of VisualApplets 3.

This Embedded Computer Vision for Intelligent Stations demonstration showcases high image processing speed and safe recognition of inspected objects by combining the programmable logic in the Zynq All Programmable SoC with Visual Applets from Silicon Software.

This video demo demonstrates an optical-inspection demo from the recent SPS Drives 2013 show held in Nuremberg, Germany. The demo shows the speedup made possible by moving image-processing tasks into programmable-logic hardware.

The video describes a demonstrator of Silicon Software, presented at different Asian trade fairs, processing CNN classification on FPGA with high data rate of more than 200MB/s in real-time.

Silicon Software Demo @ VISION 2014: Real-time Canny edge detection with indication of edge orientation by color (> the edge image is mixed to the luminance of the original image) and motion detection by analyzing difference images (> the motion image is mixed to the luminance of the original image).

VISION 2014: SIlicon Software presents a high-speed Machine Vision application, programmed by embedded VisualApplets and running on Zynq SoC

Developing high-end Vision Box for surface inspection systems
Yukari Koyama, Futec Inc., and Johannes Trein, Silicon Software GmbH, held a speech on Vision 2014 in Stuttgart on the partnership. Futec develops FPGA applets by using the VisualApplets software from Silicon Software.

Silicon Software Demo @ VISION 2011: Sorting of table tennis balls by colors, using Silicon Software frame grabbers for real-time color conversion, analyse and detection (answered by Peter Stiefenhöfer, STEMMER IMAGING head of marketing).

This application video shows how to sort fast moving bulk material such as raw material, granulated material or food with a machine vision solution.
