microDisplay X

microDisplay X

During the activation of frame grabbers, microDisplay X helps you test the entire system configuration, select and parameterize applets and perform camera settings.

  • Configure cameras (GenICam) and applets directly in the start window and save or access the configuration
  • Load multiple applets (one applet per board)
  • Enlarge DMA (Direct Memory Access) output window for a large-scale display of an individual DMA output
  • Optimized accuracy of the frame rate information (frames per second) during the acquisition
  • Easy setup of line scan camera systems with line profile and line histogram (provide information on individual pixel values and the distribution of a line)
  • Buffer assigned in applet but not used (if the image section transferred by the camera is too small) is displayed in red in the DMA output window
  • New log window to access general and camera discovery log information, grabber events and system status information at any time

More about microDisplay X


microDiagnostics makes it possible to flash a frame grabber with applets and perform various tests for a successful activation

  • Support with the speedy activation of the frame grabber
  • Test functions simplify an overview of the full system’s functionality
  • Simple camera change by selecting and flashing another applet

More about microDiagnostics


The Software Development Kit (SDK) is an easy way to integrate a frame grabber and camera into the customer’s application while using complex trigger settings, particularly the microEnable frame grabber function, to their full extent. A generic application programming interface (API) enables platform-independent work. Of course, the SDK also helps system builders develop their own C/C++/C# or Python applications.

  • Quick and easy integration of frame grabbers into your application and software environment
  • Flexible for the use of different programming languages (C++, C#, Python)
  • Reduced development times for projects
