MVTec Software GmbH

MVTec is a leading manufacturer of standard software for machine vision. We have many years of experience with HALCON Embedded – porting HALCON on a customized basis to embedded platforms. For a wide range of ARM-based platforms running the Linux operating system, HALCON is also readily available without the need for customized porting.

Competencies

MVTec is a leading manufacturer of standard software for machine vision:

MVTec HALCON is the comprehensive standard software for machine vision with an integrated development environment (HDevelop). 

MVTec MERLIC is an all-in-one software product for quickly building machine vision applications without programming.

HALCON Embedded is our solution for your embedded vision task. 
This means, our powerful software HALCON running on your non-standard platform. 
HALCON is portable to various 

  • micro processors/DSPs, 
  • operating systems, 
  • and compilers. 

HALCON Embedded enables the development of the software part of a machine vision application on a standard platform and thereby greatly eases the programming of an embedded system. 

HALCON Embedded is available for various smart cameras and other embedded platforms.

MVTec has experience with various operating systems like

  • Windows Embedded
  • Embedded Linux
  • Android
  • iOS

and with processor architectures like ARM®, Atom, PowerPC and MIPS.

Since the release of version 13.0.1, HALCON supports ARM-based platforms as a standard. This means that, for a wide range of ARM-based platforms running  Linux, HALCON is readily available without the need for customized porting.

HALCON

MVTec HALCON is the comprehensive standard software for machine vision with an integrated development environment (HDevelop) that is used worldwide.

It enables cost savings and improved time to market. HALCON’s flexible architecture facilitates rapid development of any kind of machine vision application.

MVTec HALCON provides outstanding performance and a comprehensive support of multi-core platforms and special instruction sets like AVX2 and NEON, as well as GPU acceleration. It serves all industries, with a library used in hundreds of thousands of installations in all areas of imaging like blob analysis, morphology, matching, measuring, and identification. The software provides the latest state-of-the-art machine vision technologies, such as comprehensive 3D vision and deep learning algorithms.

The software secures your investment by supporting a wide range of operating systems and providing interfaces to hundreds of industrial cameras and frame grabbers, in particular by supporting standards like GenICam, GigE Vision, and USB3 Vision.

HALCON Embedded

You would like to run HALCON on your embedded platform? MVTec offers to port HALCON Embedded to customer hardware on request, taking into account the customers' specific requirements. Our team has long experience in various operation systems like Windows IoT, Embedded Linux, VxWorks, Android, or DSP/BIOS.

HALCON Embedded benefits companies that develop professional imaging applications based on these platforms. It also lays the groundwork for additional application scenarios.

Additionally, the availability of HALCON Embedded also for 64-bit architectures enable high-performance machine vision applications to take full advantage of these architectures. These are increasingly becoming standard, e.g., in smart phones.

Since the release of version 13.0.1, HALCON supports ARM®-based platforms as a standard. Therefore, HALCON is readily available for a wide range of ARM-based platforms running the Linux operating system without the need for customized porting.

MERLIC

MVTec MERLIC is an all-in-one software product for quickly building machine vision applications without any need for programming. 

It is based on MVTec's extensive machine vision expertise and combines reliable, fast performance with ease of use. An image-centered user interface and intuitive interaction concepts like easyTouch provide an efficient workflow, which leads to time and cost savings. 

MERLIC provides tools to design and build complete machine vision applications with a graphical user interface, integrated PLC communication, and image acquisition based on industry standards. 

All standard machine vision tools such as calibration, alignment, measuring, counting, checking, reading, position determination, and defect detection are included in MERLIC.
