“Striving to make machine vision more user-friendly and dependable, EURESYS offers developers and operators of vision machines a powerful investigative tool, with all CoaXPress cards: the MEMENTO, Event Logging Tool.
In high-end inspection machines using vision, the frame grabber is responsible for acquiring images in synchronization with numerous external devices such as motion or lighting controllers, not to mention the camera itself.
Debugging these systems often requires complex equipment, for example, oscilloscopes and logic analyzer, which are used along with software profilers.
The problem is even more acute with the latest cameras available, which allow for very fast frame rates exceeding several hundred, even thousand frames per second.
During the operation, Memento records a very detailed log of events related to the camera, the frame grabber and its driver, as well as the host application, and provide it in both timed graph and tabular forms for a fast, precise and comprehensive analysis.
Memento has been designed to simplify that process and further contribute to reducing new development time-to-market and/or reduce operation downtime.
