Pyramid Imaging has become the VisualApplets Competence Center (VACC) for the United States. This designation enables Pyramid to consult with and provide support for users of Silicon Software’s VisualApplets software for the graphical programming of field-programmable gate array (FPGA) vision processors.

Silicon Software produces off-the-shelf products and customer-specific original equipment manufacturer solutions with its hardware and software developments for machine vision and quality inspection in automation. According to Silicon Software, it focuses on the intelligent image processing boards of the microEnable product series and VisualApplets.

VisualApplets allows for rapid development of embedded vision applications. According to a Pyramid press release, any application requiring high-bandwidth solutions or low size, weight, and power (SWAP) solutions will benefit due to the elimination of frame grabbers (once the FPGA is in the camera) or by reducing existing CPU requirements, given that most of the image processing can be done on the FPGA in the grabber.

Pyramid was one of 28 companies to earn VACC certification, which is valid for two years.
