The Modular Automotive Reference System (MARS) is a complete imaging solution for camera system developers and system developers working on automotive imaging applications. MARS gives engineers and software developers the fundamental building blocks needed to create next generation imaging system, while reducing the design effort and resources required to develop a working solution.

Using the modular mix & match approach offered by this unique compact form factor platform, designers can bring together different combinations of image sensors, co-processors (Image Signal Processor) and communications standards. The component boards have consistent signal/power interconnect definitions to enable users to swap individual boards, creating a wide range of options for experimenting, while eliminating the need for constructing custom boards. The result is a highly flexible solution where the various modules are fully interchangeable.
