At Electronica 2010, OmniVision has launched the first APIX Link-based megapixel high dynamic range (HDR) automotive camera system.
The system features a chipset based on INOVA’s APIX Link data interface that connects multiple OmniVision OV10630-based cameras to an automotive control unit.
High-performance, real-time data transfer is critical for the broad adoption of multi-camera driver assistance systems with 360-degree view, object/pedestrian detection and other advanced features. The APIX Link camera system allows cameras to transmit uncompressed video with full duplex communication over one simple cable in real time.
This arrangement gives the central processing unit complete control over the cameras at all times, even between single frames, while the cameras are continuously transmitting images over the link.
The APIX Link also provides power to the cameras.
Note: The APIX Link camera system will be on display at Electronica from November 9 – 12 in Munich, Germany. For more information, visit INOVA at booth #313 in hall A6.
