THine Releases a Superior Cost-Performance ISP for 16-Mega-Pixel Cameras

TOKYO - THine Electronics, Inc. announced a superior cost-performance image signal processor (ISP), THP7312, for 16-mega-pixel cameras. THine will deliver its samples from this December.

THP7312 is developed to realize higher resolution and more complicated image signal processing for cameras used in smartphones, in-vehicle cameras, drive recorders, security cameras, network cameras, and sports cameras. It can generate superior quality images for each CMOS image sensor, since THine has collaborated with major sensor makers.

THP7312 offers rich image signal processing functions such as movie image stabilizer function and simultaneous capturing of still images and movie images. Because of no need of internal frame memories, THP7312 is suitable for battery-operated handsets, realizing small size, lower power consumption, and higher speed.

Moreover, THP7312 has a high dynamic range (HDR) function with superior performance in images that have both dark and bright side pixels, avoiding over and under exposure. The HDR can be effective even in capturing movie images to enjoy them by full-HD televisions. THP7312 also has a high-light-compensation function for drive recorders to save auto-compensated images at night with oncoming vehicles’ high-beam lights, avoiding over and under exposure similarly.

THP7312 supports not only RGB but also infra-red (IR). This new feature enables to offer additional performance for such applications as health-care or beauty-care application for smartphones, drive recorders in night scene, or security cameras that require gesture or pattern recognition under insufficient light. THine’s firmware supports can be available flexibly. For example, THine offers an auto-defogging image function for drive recorders to read and save front vehicles’ number plate more clearly in PM2.5 or fogging environment.
