BDTI Analyses Imagination's Raptor ISP

BDTI publishes an article on Imagination Technology's Raptor ISP IP, announced in Nov. 2013. Imagination got into ISP technology with Nethra acquisition in June 2012. The company claims a number of advantages  of moving the ISP functionality from image sensor to an application processor:
  • No functional constraints that might be caused by the image sensor's or standalone chip's comparatively conservative manufacturing process
  • Higher performance due to the application processor's same process advantages
  • Access to main system memory for enhanced functionality, and
  • Reduced cost and increased flexibility in image sensor choice
