E-con Systems, a leading embedded design services company specialising in development of advanced camera solutions, has released a reference design e-CAM55_37x MIPI CSI-2 camera interface for Texas Instruments’ AM37x/DM37x family of processors. E-CAM55_37x is interfaced on to Logic PD’s Zoom DM3730 SOM-LV development kit and includes e-CAM52_MI5640_MOD, a 5 Megapixel autofocus MIPI CSI-2 camera module that is based on OmniVision’s OV5640 sensor. The e-CAM55_37x comes with Windows CE 6.0 driver support and support for Linux/Android will be available soon.

The DM3730 is a 1GHz processor from Texas Instruments with a built in DSP. Both the processor and the OV5640 sensor supports two-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface and e-con’s reference design implements this two-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface to support 720p60 on the display using its stream camera driver.

Customers who are designing handhelds or data loggers with the camera, will benefit from the e-CAM52_MI5640_MOD as the camera module can be placed as far as 10cm from the processor interface.

OmniVision‘s OV5640 CameraChip sensor, which is part of the e-CAM52_MI5640_MOD, has an embedded ISP. The sensor features automatic image control functions including automatic exposure control, automatic white balance, automatic band filter, 50/60Hz automatic luminance detection, and automatic black level calibration.
