Machine vision systems have become so advanced that the number of industries using the technology is growing. The most recent example is the semiconductor industry. In order to meet the growing demand for semiconductors, production must be increasingly automated. This is where machine vision systems come in. In numerous process steps, they guarantee consistently high process reliability and quality in production, which in turn can significantly increase output. Thanks to its extra-high performance and speed, the standard machine vision software HALCON provides valuable support to the semiconductor industry. The software, which is designed as a toolbox, has many attractive features, including various language interfaces that can be used for accessing more than 2,100 powerful operators directly from many standard programming languages such as C, C++, C#, Python, and Visual Basic .NET.
