User Interface Software. This software is included with each unit.
-
Full Parameter Control, Set-Up and Operation Control via direct access of the
module’s register set. Section 3 is the programmer's reference for this mode of
operation.
- Customization of on-board FPGA. The on-board FPGA can be customized to
include 'Smart' Camera functionality, such as specialized image processing, data feature

extraction, custom dynamic range mapping, JPEG Compression , etc. This method can
also be used to configure the external I/O signals for custom functionality. Imaging
Solutions Group is available for consulting with customers to design or enable custom
configurations via the on-board FPGA. Contact sales@isgchips.com for information.
1.5 Automatic Gain and Offset Correction
The LW-5-S-1394-C will provide on-board FPN correction through gain and offset
compensation. The FPGA algorithms in conjunction with an on-board dual 8-bit DAC
perform automatic offset correction and semiautomatic gain corrections. These functions
can be selected and activated by the provided ISG Graphical User Interface (GUI)
software, or can be accessed directly via register programming.
1.6 On-Board Image Buffer
The LW-5-S-1394-C provides on-board image buffering for up to one raw or 5 JPEG
frame color or three frames raw monochrome full resolution 2592 x 1944. Combined
with the module’s flexible trigger modes, this image buffer enables capturing a sequence
of frames at the maximum frame rate of the sensor, then transferring the frames at any
available 1394 bandwidth.
1.7 Digital Panning Scaling (Zoom)
The LW-5-S-1394-C camera provides full frame rate smooth digital panning. This
allows a region of interest of any size to be swept through the entire active viewing area
via host computer control. A very high quality digital scaling function is also
implemented for Zoom feature capability.
1.8 JPEG Compression
The current board set cannot offer this option. However, ISG can add this option, with
associated NRE.

Section 2.1:
ISG Camera Module Triggering Description
The ISG camera module provides a variety of triggering modes and flexibility using features
internal to the FPGA controller as well as the sensor. For a more detailed description of the
registers referenced in this document see the Programmers Reference manual.
Register Description:
Trigger Delay – A 16 bit value used to delay the start of integration from the active edge of the
input trigger. This value can be programmed in steps of 20.83us to a maximum value of 1.37s.
Strobe Advance – This 8 bit register is used to apply the strobe signal a programmed amount of
time before the start of sensor integration to allow for illumination turn on time. This value can be
programmed in steps of 5.21us to a maximum value of 1.33ms. Note: The trigger delay must be
greater then the strobe advance.
Strobe Delay – This 16 bit register is used to delay the strobe signal a programmed amount of
time after the start of sensor integration. This delay is intended for use with flash illumination
devices. This value can be programmed in steps of .65us to a maximum value of 42.7ms. Note:
The strobe delay must not exceed the integration time of the sensor. If a value is programmed for
Strobe Advance the Strobe Delay value will be ignored.
Retrigger Delay – The 16 bit value in this register is used to program the time between
integration intervals when in Retrigger Mode. This value can be programmed in steps of 5.2us to
a maximum value of 341ms.
Strobe Duration - This register is used to program the duration of the strobe pulse when strobe
duration mode is enabled. This value can be programmed in steps of 5.2us to a maximum value of
341ms. Note: The strobe output will go inactive at the end of sensor integration no mater what
the strobe duration is set to.
Trigger and Strobe Description:
The input trigger sense can be active low or high. A software trigger is also available to the
programming interface (Host Mode) as well as a trigger status bit. The strobe output is intended
to control an illumination system and can be selected to be active low or high as well as always
high or always low. The diagrams on the following pages show the trigger as active low and the
strobe as active high.

Applications Example: Using The RS422 Trigger Input
1) Preferred Method – RS422 Driver
The optimal way to utilize this input to trigger the camera is to drive the RS422 Receiver
in the camera with the corresponding driver device. The recommended driver is TI part
number SN65HVD3082ED. This method provides a balanced, robust differential input.
2) Alternate Method - Driving the RS422 Trigger Input with Standard
3.3 or 5 Volt CMOS/TTL Logic
Standard digital logic can be used to simulate a differential signal and trigger the camera
using the RS422 input. This can be accomplished by generating a 3.3 or 5 Volt logic
signal for RS422 Trigger +, and providing a logically inverted output of this signal for
RS422 Trigger -. The following diagram illustrates this approach:

causes the value in this register to be incremented by 1. Hence, the LUTs can be loaded
by successive writes to the data register. This register is R/W.

LUTDATA : LUT Address Register. Values written to this register are written to the
LUT at the location specified by LUTAD. Reads/Writes to this register cause the
LUTAD register to be incremented. This register is R/W.

5.0 ISG Firmware + FPGA Upgrade Process
This process will use the ISG Camera Control GUI application software on the host PC,
to update firmware and/or FPGA code on the ISG 1394 camera. The camera’s
firmware/FPGA code is loaded through the 1394 interface using the ISG GUI.
A customer wishing to do a firmware or FPGA upgrade should perform the following
steps:
1) Extract, and copy the firmware/FPGA binary data files to a directory on your host PC.
The files are named isgcpu_ccxx_xxxx.bin for updating the camera firmware, and
isgfpga_ccxx_xxxx.bin for updating the camera hardware (i.e. FPGA device code). The
ccxx field represents the camera type, and the xxxx field will hold the version number.
2) To upgrade the firmware on the camera, start by running the ISG Lightwise GUI. Note
that the ISG supplied driver for the camera must be installed in order to use the ISG GUI.
It is recommended that the camera viewer window be closed before continuing.
3) Click on the “Camera Control Dialog” button on the ISG GUI.
4) Select the “Camera Setup” tab from the Camera Control Dialog page. The Camera
Setup page can be used to update either the firmware or the FPGA code of the camera, or
both.
5) Use the browse button (labeled “…”) to search for and select either the isgcpu or
isgfpga binary file defined in step 1 above, depending on which part of the camera you
are updating.
6) To begin the actual download procedure, click on the “Download to CPU” or
“Download to HW” button as appropriate. A popup box will ask if you are sure that you
want to continue the process.
7) Confirm that you are sure you want to proceed with the upgrade by answering, "yes"
within the confirmation popup dialog. Once confirmed, insure that this process is not
interrupted (i.e. maintain 1394 cable connection). The progress bar will show the status
of the update. Note that an FPGA update will take a few minutes to complete. The
process is completed once the dialog states "Done" on the download button. At this
point, the camera is upgraded with new firmware/FPGA code.
8) Exit the GUI. Power cycle the camera by disconnecting and reconnecting the 1394
cable to allow the new code to be executed.

9). After the camera is connected, you can right click in the top toolbar of the GUI and
select “about isg camera system” to read the new version numbers.
