Lattice Semiconductor and Helion Demonstrate New FPGA-Based Camera Design Solutions at SPIE Photonics West 2014

Lattice Semiconductor and Helion Demonstrate New FPGA-Based Camera Design 
Solutions at SPIE Photonics West 2014 
Companies to Demonstrate How Low-Cost, Low-Density FPGAs Can Help
Easily Accelerate Advanced Camera Designs 
HILLSBORO, OR -- (Marketwired) -- 01/29/14 --   Lattice Semiconductor
Corp.(NASDAQ: LSCC) and Helion GmbH today announced they will
demonstrate several new FPGA-based camera design solutions at SPIE
Photonics West, Booth 4136, in San Francisco's Moscone Center,
February 4-6, 2014. Show attendees can see firsthand how the world's
smallest, lowest-cost-per I/O programmable devices are enabling new
HD quality camera solutions for industrial and healthcare markets.  
Lattice and Helion will showcase the LatticeECP3(TM) FPGA HDR-60
Camera Development Kit and Helion's IONOS Image Signal Processing IP
as a base platform and demonstrate megapixel and HD solutions using
Sony IMX104 and IMX136 image sensors and an On Semiconductor VITA
1300 global shutter sensor.  
The LatticeECP3 FPGA will interface directly to a variety of HD
sensors, process the image for intelligent analytics and output the
video through its high-speed I/O or through a combination of its
integrated SERDES channels, making the solution very compelling for
machine vision and factory automation applications. 
"Lattice's low-cost, low-power, small-footprint FPGAs are ideally
suited to implement various functions in a camera signal chain and
allow us to support a number of camera applications," said Kambiz
Khalilian, strategic marketing manager for Industrial & Automotive
segments at Lattice. "With key technology partners, such as Helion,
and our unique small-form factor FPGA programmability, our customers
have a programmable platform they can use to quickly bring their
advance camera solutions to market." 
Lattice and Helion experts will also demonstrate CSI-2 solutions
showcasing the HDR-60 camera development kit's capabilities with
LatticeECP3 device for supporting bridging solutions using MIPI, the
Mobile Industry Processor Interface increasingly being used by system
architects and design engineers. Other demonstrations will showcase
HDR-60 based auto focus and liquid lens solutions from Varioptics for
industrial automation applications.
