Lattice, Helion to Demo new FPGA-based Camera Design

09 February 2015

Lattice Semiconductor and Helion GmbH will demonstrate a platform for the development of high definition cameras using Lattice’s programmable logic devices (PLDs) and Helion’s intellectual property cores at the upcoming SPIE Photonics West show.

The platform will consist of Lattice’s ECP3 field programmable gate array (FPGA) HDR-60 camera development kit along with Helion’s IONOS image signal processing IP as the basis for high dynamic range (HDR) cameras utilizing Fairchild Imaging’s HWK1910A rolling-shutter sensor and Sony’s IMX104 and IMX136 image sensors.

Targeted at the industrial and automotive markets, the platform interfaces directly to a variety of HD sensors, will process the image for intelligent analytics and output the video through a high-speed I/O designed for applications such as machine vision, factory automation and video surveillance, Lattice said.

Recently, Lattice also introduced a FPGA-based camera design with Sensor to image for USB3 vision cameras.
