Chips&Media announced licensing of Image Signal Processing (ISP)

Seoul, Korea – February 27th, 2019 -- Chips&Media, a leading video technology provider, reported signing a contract to provide CARPO (Image Signal Processing) and KERBEROS (Lens Distortion Correction) to a leading developer for advanced automotive application SoCs, marking important milestone as the inception of Chips&Media's Image Processing IPs for automotive segment.

IPs licensed are the automotive targeted version, where CARPO and KERBEROS are a configurable and comprehensive ISP pipeline, and a lens distortion correction IPs respectively. In particular, these IPs have integrated Safety/ECC features and capability to accommodate various sensors’ high bit inputs (20 bits and 24 bits) into the ISP pipeline.

ISP and LDC are important functionalities in automotive applications to achieve improvements in ADAS such as object detection, while providing consistent details, and to correct physically distorted image from wide-angled lenses.
