The first in the THEIA-CAM family, the THSCU101 from THine company is a 13-megapixel Phase-Detection Auto-Focus (PDAF) USB Video Class (UVC) camera reference design kit.
The THSCU101 is based on THine’s THP7312 image signal processor (ISP), Sony’s IMX258 13MP CMOS PDAF image sensor, and Cypress’ EZ-USB® CX3 USB 3.0 camera controller. It provides users with optimized ISP and USB control firmware, reference circuit schematics, and scalability for high image quality in production. In addition, further customization of the kit performance is easily achievable using THine’s GUI based software development tools. As a result, the THSCU101 accelerates time-to-market without expensive initial costs for developing embedded camera systems.
This new THEIA-CAM improves upon the Ascella kit previously introduced by THine and Cypress. In addition to delivering high resolution performance such as full HD and 4K Ultra HD, it adds PDAF technology that provides the ultra-fast auto-focus functionality preferred for live video streaming applications. The kit’s single 35- x 36-mm (1.38- x 1.42-inches) board allows flexible integration. Also, the ISP firmware compensates for CMOS camera module variations to achieve perfect unit-to-unit image quality in production.
