Vita image sensor reference designs

Share this on social media:

ON Semiconductor, a supplier of high-performance silicon solutions for energy-efficient electronics, and its global distributor Arrow Electronics, have introduced new reference designs for a wide variety of image sensor applications.

These reference designs are built around the Vita image sensor family from ON Semiconductor and are based on Altera's Cyclone III and Cyclone IV FPGAs. The new reference designs allow customers to rapidly start implementation of new imaging designs into an open platform and to optimise systems once operational. They address markets such as machine vision, 2D barcode, security, and Intelligent Traffic Systems (ITS).

Altera's Cyclone III and IV FPGAs implement image sensor processing modules (ISP) in combination with the NIOS II embedded processor cores on the Cyclone III development kit. These ISP modules, in combination with the Vita image sensors, allow customers to read Full HD images in 1,080 pixel resolution with 60fps. Designers can also set multiple regions of interest (ROI), wide dynamic range, analogue and digital gain settings, along with rolling or global shutter selection.
