Motorola debuts Kodak chips
David Manners Motorola has rolled out nine chips spawned from its alliance with Eastman Kodak to deliver CMOS imaging solutions. Of the nine, two are colour image sensors – one VGA one CIF – three are image capture engine processors including 10-bit and 12-bit versions, one is a programmable timing generator for image sensors and two are A/D converters. The ninth is a 300-dots per inch trilinear combined image sensor and image capture engine, integrating photo sensor, timing control, analog-processing chain, 10-bit A/D conversion and I2C serial port programming control. Motorola claims that the chips have a performance which “equal or exceed that of consumer product CCDs currently on the market”. The integrated image sensor/capture chip costs $19.50, the others range from $3 to $16.
