Catalog > CAM-FE: Camera Front-End Processor Core
The CAMFE Core implements a flexible, resource-efficient camera front-end processor that receives raw pixel data from a CMOS or CCD sensor and outputs a video stream ready for display, further processing, or compression.
The core first converts the Bayer pattern output from the sensor to an RGB image using an efficient de-mosaicing interpolation filter. The interpolated RGB samples are input to the White Balancing stage, which adjusts color intensities so they are appropriate for reproduction in a display. Under its full configuration, the core subsequently proceeds with further steps essential for optimizing the visual quality of the image, running RGB to YUV color space conversion, then performing Contrast Stretching (also called Normalization) and Gamma Correction, and finally applying a Sharpening Filter.
