5MP CMOS camera is developed to provide a CMOS sensor based ARM platform to port specialized scientific image processing algorithms.
Low Development budget:
As the customer had limited R&D budget, the whole project execution has to be very cost effective. It also means that number of hardware design iterations to be minimized to save cost and time.
Miniature camera design required as intended camera was competing with other smaller form factor camera developed based on FPGA
Top level specifications of the project: 5 Mega Pixel CMOS sensor, small form factor – 30 mm x 30 mm x 50 mm. Battery operated & DC powered, Texas Instrument (TI) DaVinci SoC based design. Various Interfaces like DDR2, NAND flash, MicroSD card, USB 2.0. LED indications, SD analog video output and mode selection.
