Tiny 2.3MP HDR video camera
Xylon’s new automotive video camera fills the availability gap and enables datalogging, vehicle monitoring, prototyping and small-series production of video and computer vision ADAS/AD systems for all types of vehicles.
The camera is very small, integrated in a 1in3 housing, with dimensions 26 x 26 x 26mm and weighing only 41g. Thanks to its small dimensions, it can be mounted on various points on the vehicle body.
Video images captured by an integrated 2.3MP AR0231AT RCCB 1/2.7in CMOS image sensor from Onsemi is internally processed by a user-programmable high-dynamic range (HDR) image signal processing (ISP) processor. The HDR ISP processor is designed by Xylon logicBRICKS IP cores for programmable devices and implemented in a small Xilinx Artix-7 FPGA device. Due to its programmable hardware and full technology ownership, the video processing pipeline can be tuned on the software and hardware levels. This guarantees a high-quality color image in all light conditions, which is crucial for computer vision algorithms and video applications.
Customers can choose between different optical lenses. As standard, Xylon supplies the camera with wide FOV (fisheye) Sunex DSL 182B or narrow FOV FIFO Optics 05525FM lenses. For special optics requirements, customers can consult Xylon about camera assemblies with different optical lens types.
To easily support different automotive projects and products, Xylon’s camera supports different types of high-speed serial interfaces. Customers can choose between the industry’s most popular FPD-Link III interface made by Texas Instruments and the GMSL2 interface from Maxim Integrated. In combination with the popular Rosenberger FAKRA Z type connector integrated in the housing, Xylon’s camera can be easily connected to third-party automotive products.
The camera can also be easily connected to Xylon’s logiRECORDER Automotive HIL Video Logger, a unique single-box solution for raw datalogging and data playback in hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) direct data injections and complete test rigs for virtual driving simulations.
The new camera completes Xylon’s offering of embedded hardware, reference designs and intellectual property for video and vision developments based on Xilinx’s programmable devices. To name just a few, Xylon offers complete development platforms such as the logiVID-ZU Vision Development Kit based on Xilinx’s Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC device, or the logiVID-ACAP kit based on Xilinx’s Versal ACAP device. All listed development platforms come with a standard set of four automotive video cameras, and enable immediate development of multi-camera video awareness and computer vision applications.
Xylon’s new product has been developed in-house and meets the need for video cameras that fit into the latest automotive designs. It can be purchased in quantities ranging from a single piece to several thousands, which is perfectly suitable for special-vehicle video and vision applications.
