PRNewswire: OmniVision announces the OAX4010 automotive ISP featuring the new HDR and LFM Engine (HALE) combination algorithm. In tandem with OmniVision’s OX01A10 and OX02A10 LFM image sensors, the OAX4010 enables more intelligent decision-making by providing the LFM and HDR simultaneously, while operating over the automotive temperature range. Additionally, the OAX4010 can process the images from one camera at 60fps or two cameras at 30fps, which reduces the number of ISPs required for surround-view system (SVS) cameras by 50%.

With the ongoing transition from SoCs to stand-alone ISPs for automotive viewing, these systems are increasingly incorporating ADAS requirements such as LFM and HDR,” said Pierre Cambou, principal imaging analyst at Yole Développement. “The ability to provide state-of-the-art companion ISPs is becoming a key technology requirement for image sensor suppliers to automotive tier ones and OEMs, as they tackle the numerous new features like parking assist and e-mirrors. OmniVision is the main contender in that space and is effectively driving the technology forward.

With our ISP’s proprietary HALE combination algorithm, automotive designers can create camera systems without compromise that are flicker-free while achieving the full dynamic range,” said Andy Hanvey, director of automotive marketing at OmniVision. “LFM and HDR can be optimized together to give drivers a better picture of their surroundings."

OAX4010 samples are available now, and it is AEC-Q100 Grade 2 certified and ASPICE CL-2 for automotive applications.
