Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for controlling the parameters of groups of focal planes as focal plane groups in an array camera are described. One embodiment includes a plurality of focal planes, and control circuitry configured to control the capture of image data by the pixels within the focal planes. In addition, the control circuitry includes: a plurality of parameter registers, where a given parameter register is associated with one of the focal planes and contains configuration data for the associated focal plane; and a focal plane group register that contains data identifying focal planes that belong to a focal plane group. Furthermore, the control circuitry is configured to control the imaging parameters of the focal planes in the focal plane groups by mapping instructions that address virtual register addresses to the addresses of the parameter registers associated with focal planes within specific focal plane groups.

L'invention porte sur des systèmes et des procédés pour commander les paramètres de groupes de plans focaux tels que des groupes de plans focaux dans une caméra matricielle. Un mode de réalisation comprend une pluralité de plans focaux, et une circuiterie de commande configurée pour commander la capture de données d'image par les pixels dans les plans focaux. De plus, la circuiterie de commande comprend : une pluralité de registres de paramètre, un registre de paramètre donné étant associé à l'un des plans focaux et contenant des données de configuration pour le plan focal associé ; et un registre de groupe de plans focaux qui contient des données identifiant des plans focaux qui appartiennent à un groupe de plans focaux. En outre, la circuiterie de commande est configurée pour commander les paramètres d'imagerie des plans focaux dans les groupes de plans focaux par mappage d'instructions qui adressent des adresses de registre virtuelles aux adresses des registres de paramètre associés à des plans focaux dans des groupes de plans focaux spécifiques.
