Teledyne DALSA, a Teledyne Technologies company and global leader in machine vision, today announced the release of Sapera LT (ver. 8.0) a field-proven image acquisition and control Software Development Kit (SDK). Fully backward compatible, this release offers new features and streamlined packaging for Microsoft Windows 7, Windows 8.0/8.1, 64 and 32-bit platforms and supports image acquisition from devices built around the GigE Vision, Camera Link and Camera Link HS interface standards.

Sapera LT now features TurboDrive technology, delivering higher speed data and expanding the data transfer capabilities of select Teledyne DALSA cameras. TurboDrive speeds data transfers using a proprietary, patent pending technology that assembles data from the sensor to optimize throughput, and take full advantage of sensor data rates and the camera's maximum data transfer capability. 

With more than 500,000 installations worldwide, Sapera LT SDK is now available free of charge. For use with Teledyne DALSA cameras and frame grabbers, it offers a rich development ecosystem to support a broad range of 3rd party imaging components. 

Sapera LT SDK delivers a new level of advanced functionality, including integration with Teledyne DALSA's GigE Vision driver, CamExpert's intuitive graphical interface for quick setup and configuration, and our  powerful Trigger-to-Image Reliability (T2IR) framework in one downloadable package.

About T2IR

T2IR is a set of programmable functions within the Sapera SDK that support the real-time traceability of the image acquisition and transfer process. Developers can build detection, monitoring, diagnostic and prevention capabilities directly into their application, including which features are exposed, distributed, and utilized. T2IR combines hardware and software functions including visual indicators on the hardware, software libraries and stand-alone utilities that run non-intrusively alongside existing Sapera applications. 

"The Sapera LT SDK has been the backbone of our advanced camera and frame grabber functionality", said Inder Kohli, Senior Software Product Manager at Teledyne Dalsa, "and with v.8.0, we have set Sapera LT free. With this increased flexibility and capability, Sapera LT 8.0 lays the foundation for our new low cost area and line scan camera families, like Linea."
