To transfer the data from the sensor in a modern camera, MIPI CSI-2, a popular high speed serial interface specification, is often used. For this interface, BitSim has developed a very compact CSI-2 core using from only 500 LUTs, BitCsi2Rx.
For sending image data towards a SoC, the BitCsiTx has also been released. It has been used with SoCs like: i.MX8-series (NXP), OMAP (TI), MPSoC (Xilinx), Snapdragon (Qualcomm) and Xavier (Nvidia).
These two IPs provides a low-power and cost-effective solution for your camera application. The design is fully configurable and is aimed for any ASIC/FPGA with camera sensors supporting the CSI-2 standards.
STATEMENT FROM ONE OF OUR CUSTOMERS
“BitSim has supported us in an exemplary way, and BitSim’s IP is one important part of the complete effort that made us reach the market faster in launching our new advanced thermal imaging cameras”, says Rikard Thunell, Vice President Sourcing & Strategic Planning of Flir. Read more here
