The highly integrated OV3640 incorporates an extremely advanced Image Signal Processor (ISP) with new features such as an advanced image stabilization/anti-shake (AS) engine that requires no external components. An embedded microcontroller supports the internal auto focus (AF) engine and the programmable general purpose I/O modules enable external auto focus control.
automatic image control functions:
– automatic exposure control (AEC) – automatic white balance (AWB) – automatic band filter (ABF) – automatic 50/60 Hz luminance – detection, and automatic black level calibration (ABLC)
image quality controls: color saturation, hue, gamma, sharpness (edge enhancement), lens correction, defective pixel canceling, and noise canceling
In an age of globalization and rapid changes through scientific progress, two of our societies' (and economies') main concerns are to satisfy the needs and wishes of the individual and to save precious resources. Cloud computing caters to both of these.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
