Cypress’s EZ-USB CX3 Camera Controller Delivers 5-Gbps USB 3.0
Cypress Semiconductor (San Jose, CA) announced that Raytrix GmbH has selected Cypress’s EZ-USB CX3 USB 3.0 camera controller for its new 3D camera. The EZ-USB CX3 controller, which is now in full production, delivers 5-Gbps performance to the innovative R42 3-D Light Field Camera. The R42 supports up to 40-Megapixel resolution and 4,000 images, leveraging the CX3 solution’s throughput to provide 3D images with extended depth-of-field. The CX3:
- Is small enough for convenient use in a variety of applications, including machine vision, motion tracking and surface inspection.
- Allows developers to add USB 3.0 connectivity to any image sensors supporting the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Camera Serial Interface Type 2 (CSI-2) standard.
- Is ideally suited for high-definition (HD), high-speed image-capturing applications and is capable of streaming uncompressed video at 1080p at 30 frames per second or 720p at 60 fps.
