Automotive ISP Takes The Heat And What’s Left Of The Cold

OmniVision Technologies’ OAX4010 automotive image signal processor (ISP) employs a unique HDR and LFM Engine (HALE) combination algorithm. The ISP is said to enable more intelligent decision-making by providing the both LFM and HDR simultaneously, while operating over the automotive temperature range. Additionally, the OAX4010 can process the images from one camera at 60 fps or two cameras at 30 fps, which reduces the number of ISPs required for surround-view system (SVS) cameras by 50%.

One of several features, designers can provide drivers with additional bright and dark scene details while eliminating LED flicker, thus increasing safety. The OAX4010 can be utilized for a wide range of automotive imaging applications, including rear-view cameras, e-mirrors and SVS. Its ability to provide LFM and HDR at high temperatures is important because applications like e-mirrors are often running continuously in extreme temperature conditions. Additionally, it enables the emerging AR camera systems to overlay real-time images on GPS navigation displays, which requires LED traffic signs and signals to be flicker-free. 

OAX4010 samples are available now, and it is AEC-Q100 Grade 2 certified and ASPICE CL-2 for automotive applications. For deeper glimpses of enlightenment, peruse the OAX4010 datasheet.
