MTSI has designed and shipped hundreds thousands of video systems, ranging from complex state-of-the-art systems for DARPA, digital police and covert video, night vision, thermal, digital thermal/night fusion systems, and many others. Below are a small set examples.
GIGAPIXEL and LOW LIGHT/THERMAL CAMERA DESIGN
Mitsi has been developing Video and Image Processing Designs for over a decade. The designs usually include low light level cameras, night vision cameras or both (digital image fusion). Input resolutions range from multiple Mega-pixel sources to even Giga-pixel sources. Many times the designs drive micro displays, utilize video compression techniques, digital signal processing and implement symbology overlays. All of the designs contain VHDL code residing in FPGAs utilizing the fastest processing speeds with the least amount of required power. The attached front page shows a rifle scope in which we were an integral part in the development of the electronics. We have done many dozens of designs for large companies that don’t want you to know we developed their gunsights, tank sights, and aircraft and satellite cameras.
We have done multiple generations of digitally combined Image Fusion systems, along with dozens of thermal, IR, and low light vision cameras.
We design the FPGA, CPU, NIOS ASIC software, Linux controller code, and lay out dense PCB circuits to 22 layers for some of the largest defense companies in the world.
AWARD WINNING 3D GPU DESIGN
Editors Choice Award for the GLyder 3-D graphics accelerator board which excelled in 3-D rendering.
WORLDS LARGEST TV
MTSI designed the electronics of the Pro-FX giant screen color video projector. The main purpose of the electronics was to separately modulate the laser Red/Green/Blue outputs and to synchronize the spinning and flipping mirrors to the video input (NTSC, PAL or HD). The electronics consisted of a CPU module, ultra-stable digital galvo signal generator, horizontal scanner and vertical galvo interface, video frame buffers/controller, RGB video amplifiers (used to drive the laser modulators), dye laser pressure and temperature control, laser unit control and the remote control unit (keyboard and LCD display). The systems can project laser video to any surface (image up to 100 feet in horizontal width) which will always be in focus due to the properties of coherent laser light. The systems have performed at many world events including Universal Studios in Orlando Florida and at the World’s Fair in Seoul, Korea.
