DENEBOLA (See3CAM_CX3RDK) - CX3 Reference Design

Denebola (See3CAM_CX3RDK) is a USB 3.0 - USB video class (UVC) reference design kit (RDK) for Cypress® Semiconductor's EZ-USB® CX3 USB 3.0 peripheral controller. The Cypress EZ-USB® CX3 is a USB3.0 peripheral controller that enables developers to add USB3.0 connectivity to any image sensor compliant with the Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Camera Serial Interface Type 2 (CSI-2) standard.

The Denebola RDK developed using EZ-USB® CX3 is a complete RDK and has the OmniVision® OV5640 CMOS image sensor interfaced to it through a two-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface. This is a fully functional camera RDK that can stream uncompressed 720p60, 1080p30, and 5 MP at 15 fps. Denebola RDK is a two-board solution containing a base board designed around the Cypress CX3 USB3.0 peripheral controller and the camera daughter board designed using the OmniVision® OV5640 CMOS image-sensor-based autofocus camera module. e-con Systems, a Silver level partner of Cypress Partner program, has developed this reference design kit for EZ-USB® CX3 from Cypress Semiconductors.

The Denebola RDK support various CMOS image sensors and e-con provides add-on camera daughter boards that can be plugged on to the RDK. For a complete list of supported CMOS sensors, please view accessories tab.

Customer Speaks:

We purchased Denebola, See3CAM_CX3RDK. We are extremely impressed with Denebola because we were able to modify the firmware to access the camera module resisters, Read More..

Block Diagram of Cypress EZ-USB CX3 development kit

Based on the proven EZ-USB FX3 Platform, CX3 comes with an ARM9 CPU and 512KB SRAM that provides 200 MIPS of computational power. The CX3 supports MIPI CSI-2 version 1.01, up to 4 data lanes with data speed up to 1Gbps per lane, for a total bandwidth of 4 Gbps. CX3 is ideally suited for high-definition or high-speed image-capturing applications. CX3 supports multiple peripheral interfaces such as I2C, SPI, and UART, which can be programmed to support Pan, Tilt and Zoom or other camera control functions.
