Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (Bridgewater, NJ) recently demonstrated a LatticeECP3-based video camera supporting NIT’s NSC1005 Wide Dynamic Range (WDR) 720p image sensor. The NSC1005 high dynamic range image sensor from NIT (Verrieres le Buisson, France) is available mounted on a headboard, called the Widy Board, 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(TM) FPGA. The hardware is designed to support full 720p resolution of the NIT NSC1005 sensor at 60fps in streaming mode through the FPGA, without the need for an external frame buffer. Other features include high-quality DeBayer operating in the log domain, Auto White Balance, Gamma Correction and Overlay for both character and graphics. Lattice HDMI PHY IP enables output to HDMI/DVI monitors.
