Silicon Image 18MP ISP IP Core

EETimes talks about new Silicon Image camerIC-18 ISP IP core targeted to camera phones with resolutions from 5MP to 18MP. Ron Richter, director of business development at Silicon Image, tells all the nice stories about the new ISP capabilities while saying very little about small pixel-specific artifacts. I doubt that stand-alone ISP companies can survive in the small pixel times without a deep knowledge of this kind of stuff.

Update: Here is the official Silicon Image PR.

Update #2: EETAsia: Meanwhile TI has introduced two new members of its OMAP-DM5x family of coprocessors that claim to deliver 20MP capability and and 720p HD video functionality. The new OMAP-DM515 and OMAP-DM525 coprocessors offer 8MP shot-to-shot speed of 1.4fps in high-quality mode and 2fps in burst mode.
