Alacron Inc.


Company Overview

The imaging and machine vision community is continually seeking improved frame grabbers and high-performance accelerated vision processor subsystems to meet their demanding real-world applications, requiring processing power as well as flexible I/O. Alacron, Inc. understands these requirements and has continuously developed leading-edge products that enable customers to work more efficiently and cost-effectively. Alacron's frame grabber and accelerated vision processor subsystems can be integrated into a variety of operating environments on PCI, PMC or PCMCIA platforms supported by Windows 2000, Windows XP, Solaris, and Linux. Also, all Alacron subsystems are supported by a full range of software development tools, including a highly optimized object oriented micro-coded signal and image processing libraries.

Alacron's Application Development Platforms make it easier and more efficient for you to bring your demanding applications to market - on time and on budget. Alacron prides itself on providing expertise in understanding the increasing demand for Imaging, Vision and Machine Vision solutions. This forms the basis for our continued evolution of our product line to address the needs of customers.


Alacron offers a comprehensive line of products based on high-speed microprocessors and large programmed subsystems and FPGA memory. These data acquisition units also perform pre-processing. Alacron supports virtually all I/O standards in the imaging and machine vision market, i.e. analog, LVDS, RS422, basic, medium, full and extended channel link/camera link. Alacron is also committed to continually upgrading and improving our FastSeries family. Thus, we introduced the FastFrame 1500, FastImage 1500 and Fast-X, which provides the highest performance framegrabbers on the market. This is one of the ways Alacron continually improves its product line to insure that our customers always have a state-of-the-art upgrade path.
