Lattice Semiconductor, Fairchild Imaging and Helion Vision to Demonstrate New FPGA-Based Image Sensor Solution at VISION 2014; Reference Design Enables Manufacturers to Develop HD Camera Systems Ideal for High-End Security Systems and Intelligent Transportation Applications; Click to Tweet
October 30, 2014
Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ:LSCC), the leader in ultra-low power, small form factor, customizable solutions, Fairchild Imaging and Helion Vision will demonstrate a new image sensor solution based on Fairchild Imaging's HWK1910A image sensor and Helion Vision's IONOS IP cores at VISION 2014 in Stuttgart, Germany, November 4-6. Demonstrations will be in the booths of both Helion Vision (1E-82 in Hall 1) and BAE Systems (1-C74 in Hall 1), the parent company of Fairchild Imaging. Technical experts from each company will be available to discuss the solution. At the core of the demonstration is the Lattice HDR-60 Video Camera Development Kit which utilizes the Fairchild HWK1910A image sensor, a LatticeECP3TM FPGA and Helion Vision's IONOS Imaging pipeline. The solution delivers leading-edge low light performance as well as up to 120dB dynamic range in a single frame at 30fps. Other security camera systems typically stack frames to achieve wide dynamic range (WDR), causing negative side effects such as image blur, reduced frame rate and decreased integration times. Those issues are solved by the capabilities of this trailblazing solution.
