Software Training: FPGA-Programming with Silicon Software Visual Applets (1 day)

Visual Applets is a graphical programming tool that combines an easy graphical user interface with comprehensive function libraries. Visual Applets closes the gap between simple image acquisition and special hardware by transforming a standard frame grabber into a pre-processing image- and signal processor.


This training targets people who need to solve high end inspection tasks with extreme data rates at high speed, for short applications where other analysis systems reach their limits.

In this one-day workshop we show you how to solve demanding, time-critical applications using FPGA technology on the frame grabbers from Silicon Software. All without any prior knowledge in hardware or FPGA programming.
