Teledyne Dalsa has introduced its latest Sapera vision software edition.
This release includes enhanced versions of its AI training graphical tool Astrocyte 1.50, and its image processing and AI libraries Sapera Processing 9.50.
Sapera provides field-proven image acquisition, control, image processing, and artificial intelligence functions to design, develop and deploy high-performance machine vision applications such as surface inspection on metal plates, location and identification of hardware parts, plastic sorting, and PCB inspection.
The new version provides new and improved features allowing flexible design and accelerated execution of AI-enabled applications. Among the key features of this release the Rotated Object Detection algorithm outputs position and orientation at inference time for more precision when detecting targets and defects.
One application is for the inspection of MicroLEDs, where it is necessary to determine if the LEDs on the substrate have offset and rotation problems. With Astrocyte tools, it is possible to reduce the program flow and inspection time, and to determine the amount of rotation.
