Professional Picture Quality Integrated into Mobile Devices

Thu, 05/08/2008 - 8:27am
Silicon Image, Inc. introduces its 12 megapixel (MP) camera processor IP core designed for integration into system-on-a-chip (SoC) semiconductors. This technology delivers professional picture quality and advanced camera functionality once only found in digital still cameras (DSCs), but now conveniently integrated into mobile phones, portable multimedia players (PMPs), ultra mobile PCs (UMPCs) and security cameras.

With the release of Silicon Image's 12MP camera processor IP core, users of mobile devices can now experience imaging with the highest resolution and color quality from small form factor mobile devices. In addition to JPEG encoding and image scaling, the image signal processor supports features such as Continuous digital zoom; Auto exposure; Autofocus; Lens shade correction; Chromatic aberration correction; Bad pixel detection and correction; and Image stabilization.

The camera processor is designed to accommodate any CMOS sensor by allowing the SoC or device manufacturers to utilize Silicon Image’s tools to generate software loadable parameters, ensuring high image quality and eliminating the need for hardware redesign. This is important to developers designing today’s mobile devices and looking to develop a single SoC design which can be used with CMOS sensors from multiple suppliers.
