CHENNAI, India -- e-con Systems announces its Android camera driver for its e-CAM50_OMAP35x camera add-on board as it interfaces with OMAP evaluation board housing OV5642 camera sensor. e-CAM50_OMAP35x connects to the high speed CMOS sensor interface of the TI OMAP35x offering tremendous processing power through the superscalar ARM Cortex-A8 core running at 600MHz. e-con has developed a camera driver and integrated it to the camera subsystem of Android offering a better picture quality and perfect lossless compression involving best quality in the process of compression.

"By integrating our standard V4L2 Linux camera driver with Android Camera HAL layer, e-con is proud to offer complete ready-to-use camera solution for our Android customers", said Ashok Babu, President, e-con Systems. "This allows our Android customers to use the default camera application of Android as it is, and removes a significant amount of effort in developing custom camera application using V4L2 APIs, thereby reducing the time-to-market", he added.

Android's camera subsystem connects the camera application to the application framework and user space libraries, which in turn communicate with the camera hardware layer that operates the physical camera. By integrating the e-con Linux camera driver onto Android, e-con has enabled Android camera application to take advantage of the camera hardware and use all the features of the camera application provided in FroYo Distribution.
