e-con Systems, Inc., a leading embedded design services company specializing in development of advanced camera solutions is now acknowledged as a Cypress Design Partner at SILVER membership level.
e-con Systems has worked with Cypress Semiconductor Corp. on its EZ-USB® FX3™ USB 3.0 peripheral controller from its launch and developed a USB UVC stack that is compatible with the Windows and Linux Operating Systems. e-con has developed products around the FX3 solution, leveraging its expertise in CMOS image sensors and sound understanding of USB UVC protocol. The Plug-n-Play UVC stack developed around the FX3 firmware provided by Cypress does not require any drivers to be installed on the host side and works seamlessly with any DirectShow(Windows)/V4L2(Linux) compliant applications for accessing and controlling the camera.
By leveraging the highly-configurable 32-bit, General Programmable Interface (GPIF™ II) 2.0 interface of FX3, e-con has developed an FX3 firmware framework that can interface any video source (CMOS/CCD image sensor, Thermal imager, NTSC/PAL video source, HDMI/DVI video source) to a PC host on both USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 interfaces.
e-con Systems’ See3CAM - USB 3.0 camera series, uses the Cypress FX3 controller and the first product of this family, an 1.3MP Global Shutter USB 3.0 UVC camera, See3CAM_10CUG has been already launched in the market. e-con has also customized its FX3 based USB3.0 camera designs for various customers for meeting their requirements.
“The enrollment of e-con Systems in the Cypress Design Partner program is the recognition of e-con’s commitment and expertise that we have built with USB 3.0 solutions from Cypress. This allows e-con to serve our customers better by leveraging Design and Marketing support directly from Cypress. The partnership with Cypress enables e-con to offer our wide range of camera and imaging solutions on the emerging USB 3.0 based platforms with the strong support from Cypress” said Mr. Ashok Babu, President, e-con Systems.
“Cypress has established USB 3.0 leadership in the HD camera market based on the performance and flexibility of our FX3 controller, along with the help of design partners such as e-con Systems,” said Jayant Somani, senior director of worldwide marketing for Cypress’s Data Communication Division. “Cypress streamlines the design process for our customers by having an ecosystem of leading design houses supporting our USB 3.0 products. e-con adds to this ecosystem with their product and market knowledge, enabling leading-edge designs with FX3 and other upcoming USB 3.0 products.”
