Matrox Imaging Library (MIL) Supports IntervalZero RTX64 Real-time Operating System (RTOS) Platform

Published: November 18, 2014

Vision system developers can create high-throughput, quick-to-respond, deterministic applications using standard Windows-driven PCs

This is a great alternative to to using expensive, proprietary image-acquisition and processing hardware.

The result of close collaboration between Matrox and Interval Zero,MIL for RTX64 gives OEMs of high-throughput, time- and response-critical machine vision sub-systems an alternative to using expensive, proprietary image-acquisition and processing hardware

uidance, inspection and identification applications can be deployed such that the demanding vision and control functions run in RTX64’s highly deterministic environment while the rest of the applications, such as the HMI and archiving operations, run in a familiar Windows environment on standard PCs.

Through a separate real-time scheduler, IntervalZero’s RTX64 real-time software transforms the Windows general-purpose operating system into a fully functional RTOS that runs entirely on x64 multicore hardware. The RTX64 scheduler uniquely enables embedded real-time applications to directly access the 512GB of addressable physical memory available on 64-bit Windows.

“MIL is the first and only vision library to take advantage of IntervalZero’s ground-breaking real-time software,” said Sam Lopez, director sales and marketing, Matrox Imaging. “This introduction of MIL for RTX64 means that the most demanding machine vision applications can be implemented at a fraction of the previous cost. Proprietary real-time hardware can be replaced by software applications that run on standard PCs, without sacrificing performance or reliability.”

Machine vision, image analysis and medical imaging software development kit

Matrox Imaging Library (MIL)1 is a comprehensive collection of software tools for developing machine vision, image analysis and medical imaging software applications. MIL includes tools for every step in the process: from application feasibility, to prototyping, through to development and ultimately deployment.

The toolkit features interactive software and programming functions for image capture, processing, analysis, annotation, display and archiving. These tools are designed to enhance productivity, thereby reducing the time and effort required to bring your solution to market.

Image capture, processing and analysis operations have the accuracy and robustness needed to tackle the most demanding applications. These operations are also carefully optimized for speed to address the severe time constraints encountered in many applications.
