Features


This hardware IP core features a Bilinear Bayer to RGB converter. Its main characteristics are:

  • Bilinear pixel interpolation with full border corner cases support.
  • Unlimited input image size.
  • Dual independent clock regions (input uses image sensor's clock, output may use your system clock).
  • Pipelined design to allow a one RGB pixel per cycle throughput.
  • Minimum latency (as low as two rows).
  • Smallest internal buffers (just two rows of pixels).
  • Fully parametrisable ("on the fly" settings can be changed via configuration registers):
    • Sensor's Bayer pixels' input bit width (8, 10, 12, any bits).
    • Sensor's signaling: active-high/low frame valid and line valid signals (on the fly).
    • Sensor's Bayer type: first R, first Gb, first Gr, or first B (on the fly).
    • Converter output pixel bit width: 24, 30, 36, or any bits RGB output pixels.

For more information on Bayer to RGB conversion, please see the section below labeled "What does a Bayer converter do?".

Quotation Request


In addition to the stated features, the converter comes in two possible configurations, selected by the user before synthesis:

  • Borderless frame: an input image of (Width x Height) is output as (Width-2 x Height-2), saving logic resources.
  • Full frame: an input image of (Width x Height) is output as (Width x Height), this configuration requires more logic than the previous one to deal with border corner cases.


The "borderless frame" configuration has been developed as a commodity for resource critical applications, where it is preferable to set the sensor's capture at, for example, 642 x 482 to have the converter output VGA images. This configuration needs around half the logic than the full frame configuration.


The core has been designed with dual clocking in mind. As such, the input clock must be that of the image sensor, but the output is clocked by your system clock. The only requirement is, obviously, that the output clock be equal or faster than the input clock.

Resource Usage

In the next table you can find the synthesis results for each FPGA type (Xilinx and Altera) in which the core may be fitted. Please note that if your exact FPGA can not be found but it has enough resources compared to another FPGA of the same family, then it is also supported. If you are looking for synthesis results for other FPGA vendors or for ASIC targets, please contact us with your specific needs.

The maximum frequency indicated here is for the input sensor's pixel clock (the output clock's maximum frequency is around 50% higher than the input one).

These synthesis results have been obtained for the borderless configuration, for an image sensor with 12 bit pixels, up to 2048 pixels per line, and 24 bits RGB output pixels.


The internal buffers' memory requirements for the core are sensor dependent. They can be calculated as: Internal buffer BRAM bits = input_data_bitwidth x max_image_width x 2.

The memory requirements for this configuration are:

BRAM bits = 12 bits/pixel x 2048 pixels/row x 2 rows = 49,152 bits

The intermal buffers are divided in two, each one of 24,576 bits. It means that this particular configuration will need 4 BlockRAMs of 18 Kbits or just 2 of 36 Kbits. For images of width up to 1024 pixels, the buffers needed are half.

What does a Bayer converter do?

Most image sensors today capture just one color at each pixel, as portrayed in the picture above, but they do it with better precision (usually 10 or 12 bits). This, and the color locality, permits interpolating the missing color components at each pixel location from the known components in the immediate vicinity.

In the next image is how an image captured by an image sensor really is:

As can be seen, there is only one color component per pixel. But this color component has an outstanding precision (usually 10 or 12 bits). Thanks to this, the usual 8 bits per color component RGB pixels can be interpolated with notable quality.

The process to convert this image is done by systematic mathematical interpolations using neighbouring pixels, taking care of overflows and corner cases (as in the first and last rows and columns there are not enough pixels to manage interpolation correctly).

The result of bilinear Bayer to RGB conversion is an image with three color components per pixel (Red, Green, and Blue):
