Lattice and Aptina Imaging have announced a new low cost dual image sensor design. The dual image sensor design utilizes two Aptina MT9M024/MT9M034, 720P image sensors and combines the image into a single bus on which an Image Signal Processor (ISP) can operate. The output stream can be used to implement 3D stereoscopic video or for other multi-camera applications. The low cost of the solution enables other consumer applications such as automotive black box drive recorders and surround view cameras. The low cost, low power MachXO2 PLD and a small SDRAM chip implement the necessary logic and frame buffering that allow the two image sensors to be merged into one ISP bus.
