Image Sensors

Camera Expertise including Camera image processing algorithms, CMOS Sensor Tuning Expertise and camera integration services for and single & multi- camera sensor integration enabling a wide range of embedded devices in automotive, medical, consumer, industrial, drones, defense, security and surveillance applications.

OVERVIEW

Camera Image processing is becoming increasingly critical with the development and proliferation of imaging-enabled consumer electronic devices. Because of their performance, flexibility, and reasonable cost, camera integration / image sensor integration and camera image processing algorithms are used extensively in applications ranging from consumer, computer vision, industrial, defense, multimedia, sensor networks, surveillance, automotive to astronomy.

Mistral’s image sensor integration and camera expertise covers camera integration of CMOS/CCD based MIPI/CSI camera modules, implementation of coding standards, development of camera interfaces, image/video compression algorithms, image signal processing and system software development.  Our camera expertise includes camera integration, Camera Image Processing, CMOS Sensor Tuning and other image sensor related capabilities enable the new generation of smart gadgets that represent a quantum leap in sophistication.

As part of our camera sensor tuning and Camera Image Processing expertise we ensure IS and IQ tuning addressing maximize HDR, minimize Low light, optimize AE, AWB, colour accuracy, tone curves, contrast resolution, objective metrics, subjective testing and field and drive testing.  Some of the camera based embedded gadgets and Camera Image Processing algorithms developed by us with CMOS and CCD image sensor integration and multi-camera designs have been implemented on various ARM based embedded processors like i.MX, OMAP35x, AM/DM37x, DM81xx, AM65x etc. for Windows Embedded or Android or Linux platforms.
