TUCSON, Ariz. - Burr-Brown Corp. here today rolled out a new pair of video signal processors -- the VSP2210 and VSP2212 -- designed for charge-coupled device (CCD) imaging applications such as digital video cameras, digital still cameras, and PC/video conferencing cameras.
Burr-Brown said the new devices provide CCD signal conditioning and 10-bit(VSP2210) or 12-bit (VSP2212) analog-to-digital conversion for interfacing directly between the CCD array and the digital signal processor (DSP). The processors' primary CCD channel utilizes correlated double sampling (CDS), which compensates for
signal offset from the CCD, provides -6dB to +42dB gain range with accurate digital control for varying illumination conditions, and offers black level clamping for an accurate black reference.
"The VSP2210 and VSP2212 feature the performance, power and price required in next-generation digital camera applications," said Ed Fullman, product marketing manager at Burr-Brown.
Other features in the new devices include 20MHz conversion rate, no missing codes, and single +3V/+3.3V supply operation, said the Tucson chip maker.
The VSP2210 is priced at $8 each in 1,000-piece quantities and packaged in a LQFP-48. The VSP2212 costs $10 each in quantities of 1,000 and packaged in a LQFP-48 and VQFN-48. The parts are available from stock today.
