New architectures for multi-camera operations in vehicles

New architectures for multi-camera operations in vehicles
Today’s surround view systems may have four cameras or more to observe and analyse the scene around an automobile. Typically, at least four camera streams will be stitched together in a 2D or 3D display for the best driver experience. Camera monitor systems (CMS), may require two cameras on the driver’s side and two cameras on the passenger side, rendering the video streams to create a very wide view.

Considerations for selecting digital isolators

Considerations for selecting digital isolators
Isolation is a means of preventing DC and uncontrolled AC currents between two parts of a system, while allowing signal and power transfer between those two parts. This isolation can be required in order to protect human operators and prevent damage to expensive processors in high voltage systems, break ground loops in communication networks, and to communicate to high-side devices.
