READY TO USE IMAGING PIPELINES
Helion offers new ready to use Imaging Pipes with a set of basic image processing IP-Cores. You can find below to the following image sensors and revisions complete imaging pipelines to achieve a simple integration in your target application.
Containing more than 150 individual pieces of IP Cores, the library is available for licensing either entirely or in parts. The IONOS-ISP, which is already integrated in the Lattice HDR-60 Camera Development Kit, is a plug-and-play demo pipeline and can be configured via Helion‘s ICG-GUI Software to set up the ISP parameters.

IONOS IP PIPELINES
Example of High Dynamic Range Imaging (HDRI) Pipe
Extremely wide 120dB HDR IP ensures that no detail in dark areas is lost even if an intruder points a flashlight directly towards the camera lens, the HDR, working in close conjunction with fast-auto-exposure, rapidly adjusts exposure with changing the light conditions to offer a system dynamic range of a enormous 192dB.
Conventional Image Processing
HDRI Image Processing
The images above, demonstrate an example HDRI-Colorpipeline, which is already integrated as standard in the Lattice HDR-60 camera development kit in a powerful Lattice ECP3 FPGA unit. Extremely wide 120dB-HDR-IP ensures that no detail in dark areas is lost even when an intruder shines a flashlight directly into the camera lens, while HDR, working in close conjunction with a fast-auto-exposure rapidly adjusts
exposure in changing light conditions to offer a system dynamic range of 170dB.
Advanced Dynamic Range with IONOS-WDR Pipeline
The Fairchild Imaging HWK1910A is a high definition format, ultra-low-noise CMOS image sensor intended for surveillance and intelligent transportation applicaitons requiring high quality imaging under extremely low light and wide dynamic range conditions.
The device features an array of 5 transistor (5T) pixels on a 5.0m pitch with an active imaging area of 1920(H) x 1080(V) pixels. The sensor runs in Rolling Shutter readout mode. In addition, it also has circuitry that enables high dynamic range data collection in a single image. The sensor supports user-programmable row start/stop control for region of interest (ROI) readout mode.
The HWK1910A delivers extreme low-light sensitivity with a read noise of 1 electron RMS and low dark current. These features, combined with 2.1 megapixel resolution, 60 fps imaging rates and the ability for auto calibration makes the HWK1910A easy to integrate in a variety of systems and ideally suited for a variety of high throughout, low light-level imaging applications.
