ON Semiconductor and Arrow Electronics Introduce New Reference Designs for Image Sensor Applications
ON Semiconductor and Arrow Electronics introduced new reference designs for a wide variety of image sensor applications.
These reference designs are built around the VITA image sensor family from ON Semiconductor and are based on Altera’s CycloneÂ® III and Cyclone IV FPGAs. The new reference designs allow customers to rapidly start implementation of new imaging designs into an open platform and to optimize systems once operational. They address markets such as machine vision, 2D barcode, security, and Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS).
Altera’s Cyclone III and IV FPGAs implement image sensor processing modules (ISP) in combination with the NIOS II embedded processor cores on the Cyclone III development kit. These ISP modules, in combination with the VITA image sensors, allow customers to read Full HD images in 1080 pixel (p) resolution with 60 frames per second (fps). Designers can also set multiple Regions of Interest (ROI), wide dynamic range, analog and digital gain settings, along with rolling or global shutter selection.
The first reference designs, which will be based on the VITA 1300 and VITA 2000 image sensors, are available today. Designs based on the VITA 5000 and the MANO-9600 are expected towards the end of Q4 2011. Please contact your local Arrow Electronics contact person for more information on how to order.
