Dual camera image signal processor reference design kit supports 360º image capture

Cypress Design Partner e-con Systems has announced what it claims to be the industry's fastest USB3.1 Gen1(5Gb/Sec) UVC reference design kit with dual camera. Dubbed Tania, the single-board plug and play design kit combines Cypress's EZ-USB CX3 USB3.1 Gen1 camera controller with Socionext’s Milbeaut MBG967 ISP (image signal processor) and Sony's dual (21MP rear e-CAM210_MI230_MOD and 13MP front e-CAM130_MI258_MOD ) colour autofocus camera modules.

Tania allows developers to evaluate the latest-trend dual camera solution using sony’s Exmor RS technology image sensors with Socionext ISP. It comes with dual cameras with two different modes and it can be used as individual (front and rear) camera streaming or both cameras simultaneous streaming. High intensity on-board LEDs on both side of the kit allow cameras to capture even in low light environment. Tania has got the support for USB Video Class (UVC) extension control for a variety of features like auto focus region of interest (ROI), auto exposure metering, JPEG compression quality control, flicker detection etc.

e-con Systems provide a sample application for both windows (e-camView) and linux (QtCAM with complete source code) for preview the streaming. Developers can use this smart reference design kit as a production-ready final product and can also utilize it as a development tool for simultaneous dual camera streaming.
