Active Silicon offers a range of software to support its vision hardware products across several operating systems. There are also drivers for 3rd party machine vision and scientific imaging packages as well as Twain and NetMeeting support. Independent of the hardware we have a variety of other image processing tools such as JPEG and wavelet compression and patented vision algorithms.

  • A GenICam compliant driver package is provided with all Active Silicon’s FireBird frame grabbers. This GenICam Producer supports applications that use GenAPI, GenTL, GenCP or CLProtocol protocols.

  • All our FireBird interface cards support NVIDIA GPUDirect™ for Video. Video data is transferred directly from the frame grabber to the GPU card’s memory. With our easy to use SDK, we manage access to GPUDirect for Video and synchronize the data transfer between frame grabber and GPU memory buffers. 

  • HSDemo is a high-speed demo application from Active Silicon that acquires, records and displays images at high speed, for use with both CoaXPress and Camera Link acquisition cards.

  • Active Silicon’s dedicated LabVIEW driver allows easy access to the functionality of our FireBird acquisition boards within the LabVIEW graphical programming environment.

  • Active Silicon’s acquisition cards are compatible with a number of leading third party applications. Compatible software packages include Stemmer Imaging’s Common Vision Blox, MVTec’s HALCON, National Instruments’ LabVIEW, Norpix’s Streampix and Impuls Imaging’s nVISION.
