ON Semiconductor and Arrow Electronics have unveiled latest reference designs for different image sensor applications.
Based on the company’s family of VITA image sensor, these reference designs feature Cyclone III and Cyclone IV FPGAs of Altera. The latest designs can help customers apply the new imaging designs quickly to an open platform and to optimize the systems after it starts functioning. These designs could find applications in 2D barcode, intelligent traffic systems (ITS), security, and machine vision markets.
The NIOS II embedded processor cores along with the image sensor processing (ISP) modules are employed by the Cyclone III and IV FPGAs from Altera on the Cyclone III development kit. ISP modules and the VITA image sensors have facilitated viewing full HD images with 60 frames per second in 1080 pixel resolution. In addition, several regions of interest (ROI), digital and analog gain settings, extensive dynamic range, and global shutter or rolling selection can be set by designers.
Global Supplier Marketing’s Senior VP, Jeffrey Eastman has stated that the commitment of Arrow is to provide the most robust solutions for its customers. As the VITA image sensors of ON Semiconductor have been integrated with Cyclone FPGA technology of Altera , designers from aerospace, defense, industrial, and medical applications can access the new range of unmatched potential.
ON Semiconductor’s Vice President, Vince Hopkin stated that the company is delighted to provide a flexible reference design for the VITA image sensors. The Cyclone FPGA family provides an opportunity for designers to rapidly expand and examine the designs, which reveals the complete VITA sensor capacity.
