NIT Demos WiDy Sensor Board With Lattice's HDR60 Camera Development Kit at SPIE 
Photonics West 
Easily Integrated Boards Accelerate Advanced Camera Designs 
SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 --  Lattice Semiconductor
Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced that New Imaging
Technologies (NIT) is demonstrating its WiDy Sensor board with the
LatticeECP3(TM)-based HDR60 Camera Development Kit at Photonics West
in San Francisco. 
Featuring NIT's NSC1005C high-dynamic range sensors, WiDy is a proxy
sensor board, specifically designed to work with Lattice's HDR60
camera development platform. This combination enables the rapid
development of highly-differentiated, value-driven, robust vision
systems for automotive, industrial, surveillance, transportation,
medical and consumer markets. 
"The simple integration of NIT's WiDy board and the HDR60 development
kit allows designers to quickly prototype camera systems based around
the NSC1005C WDR sensor and LatticeECP3 FPGAs," said Kambiz
Khalilian, Strategic Manager for Industrial and Automotive Segments.
"The camera designer can try various combinations of camera
technologies, making is easy to optimize code, use an HDMI interface
to display images, drive lenses, or add a daughter board." 
SPIE Photonics West
 SPIE Photonics West 2013 runs from February 5 to
7. It is the essential photonics and laser event with more than 1,235
companies exhibiting in 2013. New Imaging Technologies is exhibiting
at the SPIE Photonics West Exhibition 2013 in the Moscone Center in
San Francisco at Booth #1127 in the French Pavilion. 
Lattice HDR60 Video Camera Development Kit 

--  Fully integrated HDR image signal processing pipeline from sensor to
    HDMI/DVI display.
--  Helion's IONOS Image Signal Processing IP with industry's fastest
    auto-exposure, and high dynamic range (HDR) image signal processing.
--  Highly efficient Auto White Balance algorithm and 2D noise reduction
    -- all in streaming mode through the FPGA without the need for an
    external frame buffer for low latency and low system cost.
--  On-board DDR2 memory enabling applications such as 3D noise reduction,
    image stitching from multiple sensors, image rotation and de-warping.

Key Features of the NSC1005C WDR Sensor 

--  Nativ
e WDR(TM) technology: Intrinsic Wide Dynamic Range, no knee
    point to setup, no multiple exposures, 140 dB in a single shot
--  High dynamic range thanks to its patented Solar Cell pixel structure
--  No illumination saturation -- Real time Dynamic Range
--  Compatible with NSC1005C sensor: 1280 x 720 pixels at 5.6 um
    pixel pitch
--  Support HD ready 720p output to 60 fps
--  Enable HDMI output with Lattice HDR60 Camera Development Kit
