Host
You have selected:

Contrast

Offers flexible control over image contrast (0.2x to 1.2x) for various bit depths (8, 10, 12, 14, 16-bit).

Utilizes a piece-wise linear function for low-noise adjustments and optimal display range remapping.

Contrast adjustment remaps image intensity values to the full display range of the data type. An image with good contrast has sharp differences between black and white.

You have selected:

Brightness and Saturation

Fine-tune image intensity, brightness, and saturation for optimal visuals (controllable in the range of 0x to 3.99x, operates on the YCbCr domain).

You have selected:

Gamma Correction

Manipulates image data to match the non-linear response of display devices.

Offers configurable input data width and separate correction for each color channel for precise adjustments.

Better noise handling on linear approximation

Programmable look-up table structures to implement a gamma correction

You have selected:

Chroma Resampler

Supports 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16-bits per color component

Supports spatial resolutions from 480p to 4K

Supports conversion between YCbCr 4:4:4, 4:2:2, and 4:2:0

You have selected:

Color Space Conversion(CSC)

Converts between RGB and YCbCr color spaces.

Supports RGB 888, RGB12, YUV444, YUV422.

Supports spatial resolutions from 480p to 4k

Supports 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16-bits per color component.

You have selected:

Black level correction

Fine-tunes black levels by adjusting on the fly using a user-defined value up to ~4095.

Ensures true black remains black regardless of the dark signal from image sensor ADC.

Improves color representation, contrast, and dynamic range.

You have selected:

Debayer

Supports 1, 2, 4, 8 Pixels Per clock.

Up to 4K 60 fps, scalable to 8K 60 fps.

Employs advanced 5x5 matrix interpolation to surpass competing IP cores.

Delivers exceptional image fidelity with minimal artifacts.

You have selected:

Stats

Provides critical frame data, such as average pixel values, Y/RGB histograms, Mean, and Variance, for the Automatic Exposure (AE) and Automatic White Balance (AWB) algorithms.

Supports data transfer protocols like Advanced Peripheral Bus (APB) and Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) for efficient integration within your FPGA design.

You have selected:

White Balance

Provides the control for Auto/manual R and B gain adjustment (0-7.99) for accurate color reproduction.

Supports standard color temperature.

You have selected:

Color Correction

Features 3x3 color correction matrix for getting the true color.

CCM Values can be changed on the fly (-3.99 to +3.99).

You have selected:

RGB-IR Sensor Separation

Our FPGA-based pipeline extends support for RGB-IR sensors, offering a novel approach to address their unique Bayer pattern and infrared (IR) sensitivity.

our innovative approach mitigates IR effects on RGB pixels by removing IR-induced artifacts. This tailored integration ensures seamless compatibility with RGB-IR sensors, enhancing image quality and sensor versatility.
