Development Kit Accelerates Camera System Development

THine Electronics and California Eastern Laboratories launch a Camera Development Kit (CDK) that offers an ease-of-design tool to advanced camera system developers. More advanced camera systems require specialized co-dependency of multiple components, resulting in more complicated design challenges. ISP firmware design is one of the hardest challenges, as it depends on a CMOS image sensor and related camera module components such as the lens, image improvements according to customer requirements and preferences, and other requirements such as video compression. In addition, typical ISP firmware development needs thousands of script lines.

 

The CDK consists of hardware, firmware, and THine’s specialized GUI-based tuning tool requiring limited expertise with minimum training. The interactive GUI-based software provides real-time camera image feedback, facilitating image tuning and system device changes to be optimized for customer preferred CMOS sensors/modules. The CDK supports all the critical image processing functions such as Noise Reduction, Defect Correction, Exposure Control, Focus Control, White Balance Control, Video Compression, and more.
