Scalable Ultra-High Resolution and Instant Autofocus Camera is now Available for a Variety of Operating Systems, Single Board Computers, and System on Chip Design Platforms
THine Solutions, Inc., a THine company, today announced they verified their THEIA-CAM THSCU101 13-MegaPixel Phase-Detection Auto-Focus (PDAF) USB Video Class (UVC) camera kit performs on Windows®, Linux®, Mac, Android™, Raspberry Pi, and Jetson platforms through the USB port.
Applications for the THSCU101 include medical scopes, AR glasses, barcode readers, vision assistive devices, drones, surveillance cameras, biometric devices, body cams, USB webcams, surgical microscopes, and machine vision systems.
The THSCU101 Kit is based on THine's THP7312 image signal processor (ISP), Sony's IMX258 13MP CMOS PDAF image sensor, and Cypress' EZ-USB® CX3 USB 3.0 camera controller. It provides users with optimized ISP and USB control firmware, reference circuit schematics, and scalability for high image quality in production. In addition to delivering high resolution performance such as 1080p and 4K Ultra HD, the THEIA-CAM adds PDAF technology that provides the ultra-fast auto-focus functionality that is preferred for live video streaming applications.
The Kit's single 35 mm x 36 mm (1.38 inches x 1.42 inches) board allows flexible integration. Also, the ISP firmware compensates for CMOS Camera Module variations to achieve perfect unit-to-unit image quality in production.
"One of the key design feasibility risks between a proof of concept and an actual design is software compatibility to the existing platform," said Tak Iizuka, Chief Solution Architect of THine Solutions. "Even if the proof of concept is evaluated to perform as required, everything would be meaningless if it did not work in the end product. With THEIA-CAM's proven ability to run on a variety of platforms, customers no longer have to 'assume' that the new camera works in their environment. It is a major achievement to be able to support these multiple platforms."
