I would like to have an FPGA chip that is tightly connected to an image sensor. Ideally I would like to read all image columns (or rows) in parallel straight into the FPGA. Does such hardware exist?

The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS (Design Automation Division EAS) researches "Vision System on Chip" (VSoC) devices.
The current devices is a 1 MegaPixel CCD image sensor with
- analog pre-processing in the columns
- configurable ADC
- post-processing in a FPGA and
- high-level processing in an ARM dual-core CPU (Xilinx Zynq-7000 platform).
It's a research platform.
