Aptina Delivers Comprehensive Imaging Solution for Automotive Backup Cameras

Aptina, a global provider of intelligent imaging solutions, is in mass production of the ASX344AT SOC for backup camera solutions. With built-in image processing, the ASX344AT delivers 180 degree viewing with robust de-warp functionality. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that 180 degree camera solutions, like the camera solutions using the ASX344AT, provide a nearly 60% improvement over traditional mirror-based systems and a nearly 15% improvement over traditional 130 degree viewing systems for backup accident avoidance.

The ASX344AT SOC was designed specifically to lower cost and enhance time-to-market. Combining a high-performance sensor, image processing, and 180 degree de-warp capabilities; the ASX344AT is a single-chip solution for backup camera solutions. This dramatically reduces overall system cost as well as physical solution footprint. The SOC comes with a comprehensive software toolkit that simplifies creation of multiple perspective views for lens distortion correction and improves time-to-market for manufacturers.

“The ASX344AT is a comprehensive, robust imaging solution for automotive backup cameras and further expands our industry-leading automotive portfolio,” said Taner Ozcelik, Senior Vice President of Business Development at Aptina. “By incorporating robust image processing with leading image sensor technology into a single solution, customers will be able to accelerate their time-to-market and reduce overall system costs.”

Product Highlights:

  • The ASX344AT is a 1/4-inch optical format with VGA resolution
  • The sensor uses a large 5.6 µm pixel which provides amazing low-light and high dynamic range, giving an accurate image in challenging lighting conditions
  • The SOC processing capabilities include sophisticated functions such as color recovery and correction, auto white balance, gamma, sharpening, lens shading correction, on-the-fly defect correction and auto exposure
  • The SOC includes four overlays that may be blended simultaneously, with a choice of 32 colors selectable from 64,000 total
  • The Universal Asynchronous Receiver/Transmitter (UART) interface enables manufactures to customize viewing modes that can adjust dynamically based on driver situation
  • The SOC offers NTSC/PAL output for universal communication with regional displays

The ASX344AT meets the stringent AEC-Q100 qualification with operating temperatures of -40°C to +105°C and is now in mass production.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of So...
What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
