Pleora Announces Strategic Licensing Agreement with Cognex to Deliver Integrated, Best-in-Class Toolset for GigE-based Machine Vision Applications

via PRNewswire
- The eBUS Universal Driver is ideal for most real-time vision applications. It runs on almost any vendor's NIC (Network Interface Card), handles all IP transport protocols - including ordinary network traffic AND the GigE Vision image and data streams. - The eBUS Optimal Driver is ideal for applications with very heavy processing overhead. It runs on Intel's PRO/1000 family of NICs, handles all IP transport protocols - including ordinary network traffic AND GigE Vision image and data streams.

Pleora's eBUS drivers allow GigE NIC (network interface card/chip) hardware to emulate direct, bus-like transactions with PC subsystems at the kernel level. As a result, video streams with bit-rates up to 1 Gb/s can be transferred directly to PC memory using very few CPU resources. The remaining CPU resources can thus be used by the vision application for image processing and other tasks.

The eBUS Driver Suite was awarded the Advanced Imaging Pro's 2007 People's Choice Award for best software.
