THine Electronics Inc. has rolled out what it says is a cost-performance image signal processor (ISP) for 16MP cameras. The THP7312 can generate superior quality images for each CMOS image sensor, and affords higher resolution and more complicated image signal processing for cameras used in smartphones, in-vehicle cameras, drive recorders, security cameras, network cameras and sports cameras, stated the company.

The ISP claims to offer rich image signal processing functions such as movie image stabilizer function and simultaneous capturing of still images and movie images. Because it no longer needs internal frame memories, the THP7312 is suitable for battery-operated handsets, realizing small size, lower power consumption and higher speed.

Moreover, the ISP has a high dynamic range (HDR) function with superior performance in images that have both dark and bright side pixels, avoiding over and underexposure. The HDR can be effective even in capturing movie images to enjoy them by full-HD TVs. The THP7312 also has a high-light-compensation function for drive recorders to save auto-compensated images at night with oncoming vehicles' high-beam lights, avoiding over and underexposure similarly.

THP7312 supports not only RGB but also infrared (IR). This feature enables to offer additional performance for such applications as healthcare or beauty-care application for smartphones, drive recorders in night scene, or security cameras that require gesture or pattern recognition under insufficient light. THine's firmware support is also available. For example, THine offers an auto-defogging image function for drive recorders to read and save front vehicles' number plate more clearly in PM2.5 or fogging environment.

THine will deliver its samples beginning December.
