Lattice Semiconductor and Leopard Imaging introduced a dual camera module kit. The dual HD IP camera solution enables the TI DaVinci TMS320DM368 video processor to interface to two 720p image sensors. This kit is ideal for engineers designing black box car drive recorders or other applications that require two cameras. For black box car drive recorder applications, one camera can be pointed out the front of the vehicle, while the other can be directed toward the driver. The dual camera module kit is available now for $399 from Leopard Imaging.
The camera module kit features a new dual image sensor design that utilizes the low power, low cost Lattice MachXO2 PLD (programmable logic device) to interface to both image sensors and combine the images before sending the data to the Texas Instruments DaVinci DM368 video processor. The images from the two cameras are merged in a side-by-side configuration.
The Leopard Imaging dual camera module kit includes a HD dual camera module,the Leopardboard 368 camera with firmware updates, a mounting bracket and necessary cables. The kit can produce still or continuous video with side-by-side images in a 1920 x 720 configuration. The HD dual camera module uses the 36 pin Zip interface. As a result, it can be connected to other TI IP cameras. The output video or individual frames can be recorded to an SD memory card or sent via Ethernet. A Wi-Fi option is also available.
