Interfacing Image Sensor with EZ-USB® FX3™ - KBA87001

Version: **

 

Question: How do I interface the USB FX3 device to an image sensor?

 

Answer:

The USB FX3 device interfaces directly with any image sensor using an 8- or 12-bit parallel bus. Other image sensors using HiSPI, LVDS, or MIPI interfaces can be connected to FX3 through a CPLD or FPGA. Since FX3 does not contain any Image Sensor Pipeline (ISP) logic, you can use an image sensor with built-in ISP, an FPGA with ISP logic, or running software ISP on a host PC.
