ams released NanoVision and NanoBerry evaluation kits, which provide a ready-made platform for the development of solutions based on their NanEyeC miniature image sensor. The 1mm x 1mm surface-mount module can produce an image with 100kpixel resolution at up to 58 frames per second.
Targeting applications such as eye tracking in virtual reality headsets, the NanoVision demo kit for the NanEyeC is based on an Arduino development platform, and includes all necessary drivers to interface the sensor’s Single-Ended Interface Mode output to an Arm Cortex-M7 microcontroller. It also supports image processing including functions like color reconstruction and white-point balancing.
The NanoBerry evaluation kit uses a NanEyeC image sensor add-on board to the Raspberry Pi port, and includes firmware to interface to the Raspberry Pi host processor. Engineers using the NanoBerry board can take advantage of the high performance Arm Cortex-A53-based processor to perform more demanding operations such as object detection, object tracking and computer vision functions provided by the OpenCV library.
