Abstract

The design of a peripheral digitization card with onboard memory used to interface the Texas Instruments Professional Computer (TI-PC) to the Texas Instruments CCD color image sensor (TC240C) is discussed. This system can digitize and store three true color video fields of red, green, and blue in arrays of 256 multiplied by 256 with the capability of displaying eight-bit color resolution (256 color levels). Video fields are digitized sequentially allowing a storage bandwidth of 30 M/s. Since the host computer is a TI-PC microcomputer, the color image acquisition/display system is a cost-effective one. Standard image-processing algorithms can be implemented in this system for image analysis. The system has also potential application in cost-effective video data transmission.
