D xO Labs announced the availability of three new embedded image processing solutions specifically designed for camera phone applications and available as silicon IP licensed to silicon vendors. These new solutions help mobile phone designers overcome the limitations of ever shrinking pixels used in high resolution, small form factor camera modules. This is accomplished by merging the best digital optics technology, also known as enhanced depth of field or EDoF, with industry-best image processing technology, including anti-aliasing demosaicing, sensor and pixel level noise compensation and DSC-class auto exposure and auto white balance.

Digital optics technology for Camera phones

The three new offerings are the DxO IPE, DxO ISP and DxO DOP families of solutions. The DxO IPE family of solutions combines the newest digital optics technology which supports low light lens designs, enhanced depth-of-field designs and low profile lens designs with DSC-class image signal processing for the best overall low light imaging performance available. The DxO ISP family provides DSC-class image processing without the digital optics implementation; and the DxO DOP family provides the digital optics processing without the image processing functions.

CMOS imaging sensor chips

All of the solutions are implemented using DxO's proprietary, highly configurable and programmable SIMD processor core and are extremely power, space and form factor efficient. Due to the flexibility of the architecture, the solutions are available in several configurations to support resolution from 1.3MP to 12MP. The solutions are available to be embedded on CMOS imaging sensor chips, on companion chips inside camera modules, or on baseband or application processor chips.

Jerome Meniere - Camera phones photo quality

"Despite the performance limitations of today's ever shrinking pixels, we believe that with the application of DxO imaging technologies in embedded platforms such as camera phones, image quality equivalent to that of digital still cameras can be achieved," said Jerome Meniere, CEO of DxO Labs. "Through our investment in building RTL and silicon design capabilities within DxO, we are now able to offer these technologies to customers seeking to embed them in CMOS image sensors, multi-media processors and other SoCs in a complete, proven RTL solution for easy integration and rapid time-to-market."
