VisualApplets 3 – Extension Packets and New Functions
To mark its tenth anniversary, VisualApplets 3 has been released as a 64-bit version with extension packets and new functions. The version includes additional operator libraries, called Extension Libraries, providing an expanded range of functions for segmentation and classification as well as for compression. Beyond these, there are operators that represent loops in the data flow model, whereby image sequences and comparisons, as well as image batch processing can be calculated on the FPGA, conserving resources. The FFT (Fast Fourier Transformation) operator has been expanded to resource-efficiently implement more complex filters with high computing load, such as band pass filters. Moreover, Xilinx Vivado software can be used for the final creation (synthesis) of the FPGA hardware code as applets, which in many cases increases the implementation speed.
VisualApplets 3 offers a graphical data flow programming environment for real-time applications in Machine Vision based on FPGA processors.
