Providing mobile phones with an image quality close to digital cameras
Hanover, September 11, 2006 - Sci-worx today announced the release of its third generation camera interface. After the sustained success of its predecessors the new MARVIN-5MP hits the road for future applications.
Ready to drop into customer SoC designs, the new IP is fully validated on module level / FPGA and can be shipped immediately.
The MARVIN product family provides enhanced 12bit image processing with bad pixel and lens shade correction, image stabilization, sharpening and noise filters. This enables mobile phones with an image quality close to digital cameras.
The complete solution comes with a software environment, evaluation board, support and training. “That is what our customers expect from a leading IP vendor” says Arnold Neugebauer, one of its system architects. “Our long experience and close cooperation with baseband and sensor manufacturers led to a well balanced mix of features, size and power consumption. And MARVIN is the first ISP on the market which offers SMIA and MIPI interfaces.”
The introduction of the new MARVIN-5MP underlines that sci-worx is a leading IP supplier with an excellence in customer specific designs. MARVIN-5MP is designed to be extremely scalable. For example the size can be easily adapted to suite 3, 5 or 8 megapixel designs or a unique version with modifications going to any lengths can be build.
