Mountain View, Calif.Pixim Inc. announced the fourth member of its Orca family of advanced digital imaging chipsets, the Pixim D1400, which is aimed at mobile and embedded closed circuit television (CCTV) applications.
The Pixim Orca chipset brings image quality to environments that experience vibration, as well as embedded and hidden security situations where it is not possible or desirable to adjust camera settings.
The highly integrated Pixim D1400 is a two-chip video imaging product, based on Pixim's Digital Pixel System (DPS) technology, that provides the image sensor, image processor and necessary intelligence to allow security camera designers to develop advanced-feature, high-quality, cost-effective color CCTV cameras.
The D1400 provides up to 102 dB dynamic range in typical operation (120 dB max). The D1400 image sensor is available with either complementary (CMY) or primary (RGB) color filter array.
The RGB and CMY digital image sensors and the video image processor that make up the D1400 chipset are manufactured using low-power, high-volume commercial CMOS processes. The resulting low power dissipation enables camera makers to create high-performance camera designs that consume less than 1.5 watts.
The D1400 includes configurable software that allows camera manufacturers to get to market quickly while offering a number of camera products that share a common base hardware design, including an option to select PAL/NTSC operation via either software or hardware (DIP switches or push buttons).
