Lattice Announces Support for Panasonic 1080p Image Sensor

Integrates With Lattice HDR-60 Video Camera Development Kit; Improves Time-to-Market for 1080p Camera Applications

HILLSBORO, OR--(Marketwire - Mar 1, 2012) - At the Embedded World show in Nuremberg, Germany February 28 - March 1, Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced it will demonstrate a LatticeECP3-based video camera supporting the Panasonic MN340411080p image sensor.

The Panasonic MN34041 sensor is available mounted on a headboard, complete with lens, and is intended for use with the Lattice HDR-60 Video Camera Development Kit. The sensor is fully supported with a 60 frames per second color Image Signal Processing (ISP) pipeline implemented on a LatticeECP3™ FPGA within the Lattice HDR-60 Kit.

The hardware is designed to support full 1080p resolution of the Panasonic MN34041 sensor at 60fps in streaming mode through the FPGA, without the need for an external frame buffer. The integrated Image Signal Processing IP pipeline provides end-to-end ISP support from sensor to displayable image and incorporates sensor interfacing, defective pixel correction and 2D noise reduction. Other features include high-quality DeBayer - Color Correction Matrix, Fast Auto Exposure, Auto White Balance, Gamma Correction and Overlay for both character and graphics. Lattice HDMI PHY IP enables output to HDMI/DVI monitors.

"Designers creating high-quality video applications are excited about our LatticeECP3 family of FPGAs with support for Panasonic 1080p," said Niladri Roy, Lattice Senior Manager for Vertical Markets. "Our end-to-end sensor-to-display FPGA-based video image signal processing framework provides image signal processing IP, support for 1080p sensors, and design kits making high-quality, low-power, low-cost camera designs easy and quick."

The Lattice HDR-60 Video Camera Development Kit and camera reference designs enable faster, easier design. For related press releases highlighting new features added to the development kit go to: http://www.latticesemi.com/corporate/newscenter/productnews/index.cfm?source=topnav.
