Pleora announces strategic licensing agreement with Cognex

Share this on social media:

Pleora Technologies, a supplier of Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) video connectivity products, has announced a strategic licensing agreement with Cognex, a manufacturer of machine vision software. Pleora's eBUS Driver Suite is now integrated with Cognex VisionPro and CVL (Cognex Vision Library) software.

Pleora's eBUS drivers optimise the performance of GigE Vision-based applications by making almost all CPU resources in the PC available for valuable image processing rather than simple data transfer. Video streams with bit-rates of up to 1Gb/s can be transferred directly to PC memory using very few CPU resources with the remainder being used for image processing and other tasks. Cognex VisionPro and CVL software provide designers with the hardware-independent, powerful, and feature-rich toolset needed for fast and flexible vision application development.

'Pleora's drivers for iPORT IP Engines have provided machine vision users with outstanding reliability and performance for years,' said George Chamberlain, president of Pleora Technologies. 'Cognex is the recognised leader in the machine vision industry and this partnership will extend the reach of GigE Vision in machine vision applications.'

Cognex began distributing Pleora's eBUS Driver Suite with Version 5.0 of Cognex VisionPro and 6.6 of Cognex CVL library. The eBUS Driver Suite is installed in the background with the Cognex applications, making the experience seamless for end users.

'By bundling Pleora's eBUS drivers with Cognex VisionPro, we provide our users with a high performance GigE solution to match our high performance vision tools,' said Scott Favreau, director of PC vision product development at Cognex.

The eBUS Driver Suite includes two drivers: the eBUS Universal Driver, which is ideal for most real-time vision applications, and the eBUS Optimal Driver, which is suitable for applications with a heavy processing overhead.
