The European Union's Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive 2002/95/EC places restriction on the use of certain hazardous substances in the manufacture of electronics and electronic components. CyberOptics Semiconductor has converted all components and manufacturing to comply with that directive. Please click here to read the complete compliance statement.

Multi-threading Application Note for the Imagenation PXC200A
There are situations (determined individually) when it is better to develop a multi-threaded application than a single-threaded application, but it needs to be done correctly, or it may be impossible to debug especially on a multiple-processor system. Imagenation has developed an application note that can be used as a guide in building multi-threaded applications. Imagenation has developed two application notes (one in C and one in C++ using MFC) that show the correct way to build a multi-threaded program using kernal objects instead of global variables to control synchronization between threads.

Automatic Contrast & Brightness Adjustments Application Note for PXC200A
Most pictures, whether machine vision images or vacation pictures, are taken in less-than-perfect lighting. If you get a bad bunch of vacation pictures, you may be stuck with them, but machine vision images can be corrected. In fact, if you are using the Imagenation PXC200AL or PXC200AF, you can correct poorly exposed images before they even reach computer memory for processing. Why would you want to do that? A poorly exposed image is not only difficult to see but may be difficult or impossible for image-processing software to process. This application note presents an algorithm that automatically adjusts the PXC200A for the correct brightness and contrast.
