Leutron Vision's micro-PC for embedded vision applications

LVmPC® series is a modular micro-PC with a small footprint of 91×92×182mm, suitable for medical, security and industrial machine vision applications. This PC family combines innovative notebook technology with modern frame grabber technology in a very small form factor. For vision applications, the popular operating systems Windows 9x/NT/2000/XP, Linux and VxWorks are available

LVmPC® main highlights:


The LVmPC series is based on standard notebook components with the following specifications:

Frame Grabber Modules








Common features of all frame grabber modules

For further details about Leutron Vision's extensive range of frame grabber boards, please consult the data sheets of the PicPort® and PicProdigy®, which are compatible.



Operating systems

As LVmPC is 100% compatible with standard PC technology, all popular OS's can be used. We support Windows 9x/NT4/2000/XP/embedded-NT, Linux and VxWorks ensuring full user compatibility with existing appplications.


Leutron Vision Software Development Suite, LV-SDS, is a software development package (Windows, Linux & VxWorks) that allows full control of all PicPort® and PicProdigy® products and contains extensive libraries and software tools.

The suite consists of Daisy - the basic software interface for PicPort®/PicProdigy® cards, Camera Editor - easy interactive setup of standard and non-standard cameras, DRAL - a library for handling specific time-critical tasks, and Orchid - high level library (DLL or OCX) for quick and easy design of PicPort®/PicProdigy® applications. The camera editor comes with more then 500 definition sets for the most popular cameras on the market. TWAIN Driver and Video for Windows - provide a simple interface between Leutron Vision hardware and other office and image manipulation programs (e.g. MS Office, CorelDRAW, etc.).

Demo programs and example source code

The software products come complete with a set of demo programs and additional examples with source code as a guide to the programmer in developing particular applications. To obtain more information, please download the LV-SDS manual.

3rd party software

Several well-known third party packages for real-time image processing and analysis are also supported. The packages include HALCON, Activ Vision Tools, NeuroCheck, and others. Please refer to our detailed software brochure (PDF) for more details.
