Android Supports Linux Camera Board

e-con Systems has launched  its Android camera driver. The device will be deployed on its e-CAM50_OMAP35x, which is offered as an add-on to its camera board while it interfaces with the OMAP evaluation board. The evaluation board houses  the OV5642 camera sensor.

The device links to the high speed CMOS sensor interface of the TI OMAP35x. It provides good processing power via the ARM Cortex-A8 core at 600MHz. The company has designed and incorporated a driver into the Android camera  subsystem. This makes the picture quality much better. It can also compress the picture into a smaller size without compromising on the quality of the picture.

According  to Ashok Babu, president of the company, this solution will allow its use on multiple products, minimizing the time needed to develop new designs each time, thus making it time efficient. The subsystem links the camera application to the target space libraries, communicating with the hardware layer that makes the actual camera work. By incorporating the Linux driver into the Android, it can deploy all the features of the FroYo Distribution.
