Board driver software
This filter is intended to cooperate with board using its vendor SDK. To be able to connect with board it is required to install BitFlow SDK software. Currently Aurora Vision Studio requires BitFlow SDK version 6.30.
BitFlow SDK can be downloaded from following website: http://www.bitflow.com (registration may be required).
Running applicationThis filter uses camera configuration files, which are loaded to register. To load this file to register you should use SysReg application from BitFlow SDK.
To identify the camera, configuration file should be loaded to Aurora Vision Studio, using inCameraFileName input. Choosing index of board is too necessary.
Camera file must be located in configuration directory. Default configuration directory should be "C:\BitFlow SDK 5.90\Config". After that, correct directory should be used - it depends on type of board installed in system.
To change trigger options or digital outputs, use Aurora Vision Studio(see "See also" paragraph). Another parameters might be changed by creating new configuration file. Configuration tool "CamEd" available with BitFlow SDK 5.90 should be used.
