VITA Reference Kits



Based on an Altera Development Board to support the VITA Image Sensors of ON Semiconductor.

Complete Reference Design for the VITA Image Sensors

These reference designs are build around the VITA image sensor family of ON Semiconductor and are based on Altera FPGAs. It allows you to rapidly start implementation of new imaging designs into an open platform and to optimize their systems once operational.

The ON Semiconductor VITA image sensor family comprises four configurable, flexible, easy to use CMOS image sensors targeting growing markets for 2D barcode readers, high-end security and surveillance solutions, motion monitoring, Intelligent Traffic-management Systems (ITS), manufacturing equipment, and others where global shutter is a necessary feature.

Key Features

  • Support of ON Semi VITA1300, VITA2000 & VITA5000
  • Sensor interface controlled by Altera NIOS II processor (*)
  • Full HD 1080p/60fps through DVI interface
  • Upgrade to other Altera FPGA’s like Cyclone IV, Arria II GX and Stratix III/IV FPGA’s
  • Schematics and Bill of Materials


  • Motion monitoring
  • Manufacturing equipment
  • High-end Security and Surveillance solution
  • ITS
  • 2D Barcode Readers

Key Benefits
