Silicon Image Delivers Advanced 12 Megapixel Camera Processor IP Core for Mobile Devices

via PRNewswire

Silicon Image's unique camera processor design incorporates image signal processing, post processing and image compression in several efficient hardware blocks, requiring little software support. Compared to competing software based camera solutions, only about one million instructions per second (MIPS) in software processing is required to process each image, resulting in no noticeable wait time between pictures. In addition to high-quality, low-power camera processors for mobile device implementation, Silicon Image provides low-power HDMI Transmitter IP cores for use in mobile phones, portable multimedia players, high-definition digital camcorders security SoCs.

Visit Silicon Image at the Embedded Systems Conference, McEnery Convention Center, San Jose, CA , Booth #2509, April 15-17, 2008 to see our camera processor demonstration.
