National Instruments Corp. has announces version 6.1 of its Vision Development Module software used by engineers and scientists to create embedded vision systems for greater reliability in applications such as automated inspection and alignment in manufacturing.

Together with company's LabVIEW Real-Time software, they provide embedded vision capabilities to the company's real-time PXI/CompactPCI platform.

Consisting of the IMAQ Vision 6.1 and IMAQ Vision Builder 6.1, the NI Vision 6.1 Development Module prototypes vision applications and generate LabVIEW programs on a host computer, and deploy these applications on the real-time PXI platform.

IMAQ Vision Builder is an interactive environment that quickly prototypes and benchmarks vision applications without programming, while the IMAQ Vision is a library of more than 300 machine vision and scientific imaging functions The PXI platform provides advanced timing features and synchronizes imaging devices with the company's data acquisition and motion control hardware.
