The Data Path

The data path is the core of the processing unit and implemented as ASIC in digital CMOS technology. It processes image data in a pixel pipeline. Due to technological restrictions, not all required memory structures could be implemented as embedded memory on-chip. Therefore, additional external memory components are employed. They form a part of the data path as well.
