CSSPs ARM High-Res Cameras
QuickLogic unveils a complete, ready-to-use solution for the Sitara AM335x ARM Cortex-A8 processor from Texas Instruments. Part of the company’s line of Customer Specific Standard Products (CSSPs), the solution enables an AM335x processor to support high-resolution cameras through a low-power parallel camera interface (CAM I/F) port. By eliminating the need for cameras to consume scarce USB ports and by reducing total system power consumption, the QuickLogic CSSP CAM I/F solution expands the application space for the Texas Instruments processor in the mobile, portable consumer, industrial tablet, and industrial smart-phone markets. The AM335x processor is designed for a variety of portable devices that support high-resolution cameras. For easy integration of the AM335x processor, BeagleBoard.org created BeagleBone, a ready-to-use, open-source hardware platform for rapid prototyping and firmware and software development. It allows developers to add many features and interfaces via add-on boards or capes. The camera cape, including the QuickLogic CSSP, connects to a BeagleBone and an Aptina image sensor. The QuickLogic BeagleCam Camera Cape solution is available today as a ready-to-use CSSP or as a Proven System Block for use in other CSSPs. For more info, go to www.quicklogic.com/ti-camif.
