Signal Processing Applications

Article

Industrial markets are creating global impact, manufacturing new products through more sophisticated production processes, data sharing, and greater integration of machine vision throughout operations. Data and image processing systems in turn often require a high degree of customization, driving system integrators toward modular platforms that can be developed and deployed quickly. Throughout this industrial evolution, CompactPCI (cPCI) has played an important role as an ideal platform for handling the increasingly high data throughput required on the factory floor.

New and faster point-to-point industrial applications are now possible with cPCI Serial. These platforms capitalize on the fundamental change from bus-based systems to more integrated, serial communication-based systems that leverage an efficient star topology. New designs using this platform can benefit from a proven standard with a healthy ecosystem enhanced with new options for high-bandwidth I/O. Understanding the flexibility and capabilities of cPCI Serial offers a significant competitive edge for industrial Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) - and keeps industrial applications poised for whatever comes next.Industrial embedded markets keep designers very busy, working with a diverse and demanding range of vision-based applications. Machine vision covers the spectrum and can be found in automotive or electronics manufacturing, packaging, medical technology, surveillance systems, traffic and road safety engineering, or general healthcare. These essential systems handle localization and identification, measurement, and inspection tasks such as identifying, counting, and measuring objects or reading product codes and labels, for example. They may inspect product quality in a manufacturing line, constantly controlling and documenting quality throughout production processes. [Continue reading →]
