THine’s 13MP UVC Camera Kit now runs on Windows, Linux, Mac, Android, Raspberry Pi, and Jetson Platforms
Scalable Ultra-High Resolution and Instant Autofocus Camera is now Available for a Variety of Operating Systems, Single Board Computers, and System on Chip Design Platforms  

 [Tokyo, March 2, 2022 and Santa Clara, CA, March 1, 2022] THine Electronics, Inc. (THine) and THine Solutions, Inc., a THine company, today announced they verified their THEIA-CAM THSCU101 13-MegaPixel Phase-Detection Auto-Focus (PDAF) USB Video Class (UVC) camera kit performs on Windows®, Linux®, Mac, Android™, Raspberry Pi, and Jetson platforms through the USB port.
Applications for the THSCU101 include medical scopes, AR glasses, barcode readers, vision assistive devices, drones, surveillance cameras, biometric devices, body cams, USB webcams, surgical microscopes, and machine vision systems.
The platforms on which the THSCU101 now run use various Operating Systems including Windows, macOS® Big Sur, Android, Linux.
The THSCU101 Kit, introduced last May, is based on THine’s THP7312 image signal processor (ISP), Sony’s IMX258 13MP CMOS PDAF image sensor, and Cypress’ EZ-USB® CX3 USB 3.0 camera controller. It provides users with optimized ISP and USB control firmware, reference circuit schematics, and scalability for high image quality in production. In addition to delivering high resolution performance such as 1080p and 4K Ultra HD, the THEIA-CAM adds PDAF technology that provides the ultra-fast auto-focus functionality that is preferred for live video streaming applications.
The Kit’s single 35 mm x 36 mm (1.38 inches x 1.42 inches) board allows flexible integration. Also, the ISP firmware compensates for CMOS Camera Module variations to achieve perfect unit-to-unit image quality in production.

The THEIA-CAM family of kits address many wide-ranging camera applications. Kits in the family include the THSCU101 and the THSCM101. The THSCU101 is a USB Video Class Camera supporting Windows, Mac, Android, and Linux. The THSCM101 is a camera designed to directly work with NXP i.MX 8M Family Evaluation Kits.  Future THEIA-CAM family kits will expand its interface compatibility for even more Single Board Computers and SoC Platforms.
