Software

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.

  • ActiveCapture is the front-end software for Active Silicon FireBird frame grabbers. The GenICam GenTL software is designed to support GenICam compatible CoaXPress and Camera Link cameras, as well as non-GenICam Camera Link cameras. It allows the user to access and control cameras and frame grabbers in a clear and intuitive way.

  • 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 Active Silicon FireBird and Phoenix interface cards are compatible with NVIDIA’s GPUDirect™ for Video. Our well documented API and SDK sample code allows for easy integration of parallel computing techniques on standard computer hardware.

  • All Active Silicon FireBird and Phoenix interface cards are compatible with AMDs DirectGMA. Our well documented API and SDK sample code allows for easy integration of parallel computing techniques on standard computer hardware.

  • 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, See Fast Technologies' EyeMotion, MVTec's HALCON, Norpix's Streampix and Impuls Imaging's nVISION.
