Easy Connection to the TI Sitara Platform

The QuickLogic CAM I/F Catalog CSSP is designed to connect the Texas Instruments Sitara ARM335x ARM Cortex A8 application processor and parallel image sensors.

 

Integrate Cameras to Sitara-based Systems

The Sitara platform does not have a native MIPI-CSI or parallel camera interface. With this constraint, system designers have previously been forced to integrate cameras to Sitara-based systems through the USB interface. However, USB is a power-hungry interface, making this a less-than-ideal solution, especially in portable applications.

 

CAM I/F Catalog CSSP

To address this design concern, the QuickLogic CAM I/F Catalog CSSP is designed to connect a parallel interface camera to the General Purpose Memory Interface (GPMC) on the Sitara platform. The Catalog CSSP allows the integration of up to a 5 Megapixel camera through the GPMC interface, not only reducing system power, but also freeing up a USB connection for use elsewhere in the design.
