In order to realize the DSP Video Image Processing System works well in the highlight environment, the system control software is designed. In this control part, the ultra-low power MSP430 single chip microcomputer (MCU) is the core, which can be programmed to control the DSP Video Image Processing System, the video A/D converter and the highlight protection circuit by the Inter-Integrated Circuit (I2C) bus. The Image Processing algorithm models can be selected. Whether the highlight protection circuit is turned on or not depends on the comparison result of the environment light and the MCU light threshold. The control program code has been debugged and tested through the MSP development board and the IAR C-SPY debugger. The result shows the DSP Video Image Processing System Control Software is ideal.
