We are dedicated to our goal of becoming leaders in the development of embedded software for digital cameras and the secondary development of various chips. To date, we have provided complete digital camera software solutions and services to many internationally known digital camera manufacturers. Our customers are mainly from Asian and North American countries.
In addition to developing traditional digital cameras, we also offer digital camera solutions to well-known overseas mobile phone manufacturers. Our highly skilled and experienced R&D team is responsible for the development of new technologies and products. Currently they are researching the application of digital camera technologies in smartphones and tablets.
Our team members have a wealth of experience in embedded technology and business operation. Each model is quickly and efficiently developed, while ensuring that the product delivered is in line with the high quality requirements of customers.

Platform

In addition to μITRON-based development, we can also develop and customize digital cameras under Linux and Android.

Case Studies

Case 1:

We have successfully developed a series of digital cameras that can support global positioning system (GPS). When receiving a satellite signal, our cameras allow users to calculate information related to their current location such as longitude, latitude, altitude, speed and time, and display the location and relevant route. Our implementation project includes GPS module management, GPS information expression, historical location storage, GPS information for photos, etc.

Case 2:

We have adopted Bionz image processing chips with the functionality of face recognition. By leveraging these powerful processors for use in calculation, automatic focus and exposure control, we have successfully developed digital cameras with a smile recognition feature.
Using this technology, cameras target the face of the subject and adjust the focus and exposure automatically when a face is detected in the picture. Once this is done, the cameras take a photo immediately once a smiling face is detected.

Case 3:

We have applied NXP TDA9989 HDMI interface chips to some of our digital cameras. TDA9989 chips which support HDMI v1.3 standard have HBR interfaces and allow uncompressed audio streams. TMDS serial interface can support a maximum pixel transmission rate of 340Mpx/sec, and the embedded HDCP processor effectively protects copyrighted audio and video from unauthorized reproduction.

Projects that we have implemented include:

1. Driver development for TDA9989 hardware such as audio processors, video input processors, TMDS serial interfaces, hot plug detection interrupt processing, receiving sensors and I2C cable
2. HDMI control, definition setting and output video setting
