  • microDisplay X

    While you activate frame grabbers, test the entire system setup including hardware applets and camera settings.

microDisplay X – Reliably Acquire Your First Image

During the activation of frame grabbers, microDisplay X helps you test the entire system configuration, select and parameterize applets and perform camera settings. The tool enables an even more convenient system activation and contains additional performance features, such as the complete integration of the GenICam Explorer. In addition to direct access to camera registers, this makes it possible to conveniently configure the link topology for GenICam-compatible cameras (CLHS, CoaXPress and GigE Vision). The camera connection as well as the camera and frame grabber firmware can be configured and controlled and the settings can be saved – as an alternative to configuration via an SDK.

microDisplay X is provided and installed with runtime.

Benefit from the following advantages:

  • 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 output window (Direct Memory Access) for a large-scale display of an individual DMA output
  • Optimized accuracy of the frame rate information (frames per second) during the capture
  • 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

New in microDisplay X

With the new, highly revised user interface, system builders are guided conveniently and reliably to the first image acquisition with a camera frame grabber system. After loading an applet appropriate for the camera and frame grabber, the applet window shows the frame grabber with the loaded applet and its processes. The camera’s input ports and DMA output ports are represented for each applet process and can be configured (the applet and camera settings for the image width and height should correspond, for example). The window also shows the DMAs activated for the applet during the image capture.

The tool supports continuous image acquisition as well as image sequences and still shots. After starting or finishing the image acquisition, it shows the individual images that are available for a detailed analysis in a separate window (zooming and scrolling through the images). Now line scan cameras can be activated more easily based on provided data about individual pixel values and the grey/color value distribution of a line. Instead of a camera, you can use the simulator integrated in the applets as an alternative image source for initial tests with the frame grabber.

VisualApplets Expert

VisualApplets Expert

Experienced users have the option of applying existing hardware code, debugging the design under runtime conditions and creating paths to parameters in hierarchical structures.

  • With the custom library, system builders apply their image processing modules programmed in VHDL or Verilog (VHDL libraries) in VisualApplets as generic operators, thus preserving their preparatory work.
  • The debugging library enables enhanced debugging to detect programming errors, deadlocks and bandwidth problems and to increase the design stability.
  • The parameters library offers users tools to change even those parameters that might be deeply embedded in the design’s hierarchical structures. The changes are automatically and consistently updated during the runtime.

VisualApplets Libraries

VisualApplets Libraries

VisualApplets libraries comprise multiple operator libraries which expand the operators’ scope with valuable image processing functions, such as those for segmentation, classification and compression.

  • Segmentation/classification: These operators are used to segment and define objects in images and assign characteristics to them.
  • Compression: The JPEG operator makes it possible to execute the JPEG image compression directly on the FPGA of the vision hardware to reduce image data.

VisualApplets Protection

VisualApplets Protection

To prevent the use of proprietary applets on external frame grabbers and thus protect intellectual property from outside access, the applets and frame grabbers can each be securely encoded with a lock.

  • Applets and frame grabbers are each securely encoded with a lock.
  • Two protective mechanisms guarantee maximum security.
