July 7, 2010 - e-con Systems announces its 5MP High definition (HD) camera solutions for OMAP35x processors from Texas Instruments. The 5M Pixel daughter card will be helpful for customers who are targeting applications that involve analyzing images of moving objects. Capturing moving objects require a high frame rate of capture and having a high definition camera that can do a 720p at 30fps helps. The e-CAM50_OMAP35x camera daughter board, having a size of 8.5mm X 8.5mm X 5.75mm with a Omnivision OV5642 camera module, can be directly interfaced on the TI TMDXEVM3530 EVM board. Logically, e-CAM50_OMAP35x connects to the high speed CMOS sensor interface of the TI OMAP35x. The TI OMAP35x processors offer tremendous processing power thanks to the Superscalar ARM Cortex-A8 core running at 600MHz. With an in-depth knowledge of camera hardware/firmware and related Embedded applications, e-con Systems serves its customers globally to develop camera drivers, applications and help them optimize the camera performance for different range of applications viz. handheld terminals, surveillance systems, 1D/2D barcode reader, Digital Microscopy, Low vision aid appliances, Video conferencing, Facial Recognition and Video/Image capture etc., both on Windows CE 5.0/6.0 and Linux operating systems. On the image sensors side, e-con has been working very closely with Omnivision and has been using the OV sensors from VGA up to 5Mega Pixel. In addition to working on general purpose image sensors, e-con Systems works on specialty sensors from OVT such as High Dynamic Range sensors for outdoor usage, 720p HD and 1080p Full HD sensors for security and surveillance applications, and CCD replacement sensors for low light ambience etc. e-con has built a strong technical support-alliance with Omnivision to provide world-class customized optimal solutions and consultation services to the customers. About e-CAM e-CAM is e-con‚Äôs reference design featuring a camera board interfaced to a processor on its high speed CMOS interface. Customers buy the e-CAM boards from e-con along with the schematics and try to integrate it in to their custom design. Along with the schematics, e-con also provides sample drivers for WinCE and Linux. Customers also license the Direct Show Windows CE drivers and V4L2 based Linux drivers for the reference design. For processors that don‚Äôt have the Camera ISP pipeline, e-con Systems provides the complete software stack for raw image sensors.
