Learn more about machine vision! In our knowledge base we are explaining key technical terms about image processing. We give you an overview to topics like 3D machine vision or the established standards like CameraLink, GigE Vision or GenICam.
When selecting a PC for an imaging application there are many factors
that need to considered in order to ensure that the solution chosen
delivers the performance needed, combined with both long-term
reliability and stability of supply.
As bus architectures evolve, so do CPU and support chip architectures.
The latest processor versions provide multiple CPU cores per processor
and have enhancements that support 64 bit operating systems to take
advantage of the 64 bit architectures that are now inherent in PC
Most PC systems use a single disk to host the operating system and to
store application data, as the size and data rates are increasing rapidly.
Disk interfacing is achieved using the SATA interface (Serial ATA).
Any data transfer network is only as strong as the weakest link. We have
seen an increase in PC performance in terms of processor speed,
memory access speed, bus speed and architectures, and although these
issues are becoming less critical in many application areas, they still
need to be considered when a PC's CPU loading is high.
