New ARM chips for upcoming cameras

Mali-C52 and Mali-C32

The new ARM image chips are designed to deliver high-quality HDR video capture on action cameras, drones, smart home, and robotic gadgets in the near future. ARM claimed that they can allow cameras to see like a human eye.

The Mali-C52 comes in two configurations. One of them is optimized for image quality and one is for the silicon area, the price. On the other hand, Mali-C32 is optimized for low-power devices like drones.

ARM's new image chips can process up to 600 megapixels per second or up to 4K videos at 60fps ala DSLRs. The ISPs also has support for up to 16MP cameras. They also have dual output for simultaneous high reso images and downscaled video steaming.

The chips highlights 25 processing steps on each pixels to improve HDR processing, noise reduction, and color management. It uses some sort of pixel binning that will merge four exposures. The image is processes internally at 20-bits precision to improve dynamic range and low light performance.

Mali-C52 and Mali-C32 are also complete with a software package for controlling ISP, sensor, auto-white balance, auto-focus and auto-exposure. They also have flexible tuning and calibration tools.
