Cypress’s EZ-USB CX3 USB 3.0 camera controller, selected for use in Raytrix’s R42 3-D light field camera, provides 5 Gbps performance and 3-D images with extended depth-of-field. The new 3-D camera is small enough for use in applications such as machine vision, motion tracking and surface inspection. The camera controller adds USB 3.0 connectivity to image sensors supporting MIPI CSI-2, and suited for high-speed HD image-capturing applications, it is capable of streaming uncompressed video at 1080 p at 30 frames per second or 720 p at 60 fps. The camera controller is supported by the Denebola reference design kit from Cypress’s partner, e-con Systems. The kit contains a ready-for-production reference board that leverages CX3’s SuperSpeed USB performance to process large image files and stream HD video without compression. The programmable controller supports MIPI CSI-2 1.01, up to 4 data lanes at up to 1 Gbps per lane, and image formats including RAW8/10/12/14, YUV422 and RGB888/666/565. The EZ-USB CX3 USB 3.0 camera controller is in full production and is certified by the USB-IF.
