ADAS Multi-Sensor Hub Reference Design With Quad 4-Gbps FPD-Link III, Dual CSI-2 Output, and PoC
Created: Mar 12, 2018
The TIDA-01323 camera hub reference design allows connection of up to four 2-megapixel, 60-fps cameras over coax cable. This design utilizes these coax cables to provide power, back-channel communication, and clock synchronization to the sensors. The 4-Gbps FPD-Link III quad deserializer supports dual-output Mobile Industry Processor Interface (MIPI) Camera Serial Interface-2 (CSI-2) over a Samtec connector to application processors. This design also allows the user to connect other types of sensors for sensor fusion applications.
Many automotive advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) require multiple cameras. This reference design addresses these requirements by combining the outputs from four 2-megapixel imagers into two MIPI CSI-2 video ports. These video ports are available on an external connector that can attach to a TDA3 or TDA2Plus EVM and other similar processors.
