Ambarella announced the A7L-A family of automotive camera System on Chip (SoCs) and reference designs. The A7L-A family combines full HD dual-view recording with excellent video quality. It offers excellent image quality for capturing license plates and other details, even in low light conditions. The A7L-A family of SoCs and reference designs are available now.
Ambarella announced the A9 camera System on Chip. The SoC supports the new 4K Ultra HD video resolution at 30 frames per second. It features dual core ARM Cortex-A9 CPUs, 32nm CMOS technology, and low power consumption. The Ambarella A9 SoC is available now for qualified customers. It is ideal for creating cameras with advanced fast-action video features, exceptional still image quality, and full wireless connectivity.
Ambarella introduced the A7 IP Camera SoC for video surveillance applications. The Ambarella A7 features an ARM CPU, multi-streaming 1080p60 H.264 encoder, up to 500 MHz pixel capture rate (equivalent to 8 Megapixels at 60 frames per second), and power consumption of less than 1.5 Watts. The chip’s 3D motion compensated noise reduction eliminates the motion smearing and ghosting artifacts that are commonly associated with motion adaptive 3D filtering. The Ambarella A7 IP Camera SoC is sampling now.
Ambarella introduced the A7 system-on-chip (SoC) for advanced hybrid still and video cameras. The A7 delivers features 528-MHz ARM11 CPU, full HD 1080p60 or 4Mp30 H.264 video recording, high-speed 500Mpixels/second capture capability, smooth slow-motion replay, high dynamic range (HDR) processing, image stabilization, both DIS and EIS, and rolling shutter correction for CMOS sensors. The A7 can simultaneously encode a full HD stream while encoding a second stream for upload to the Internet or for streaming over WiFi. The Ambarella A7 SoC and hybrid camera reference design kit and SDK are available now.
Ambarella introduced the A5s Media Processor for the IP camera and video surveillance. The A5s features HD H.264 multi-streaming, excellent image quality, a flexible ARM11 CPU, and low power. The A5s family is currently shipping, with models targeting IP cameras from SD to HD and beyond. The A5s IP Camera Reference Platform with SDK is available for qualified partners. IP cameras based on Media Processor are expected to be priced below US $150.
Ambarella introduced the A5s system-on-a-chip (SoC) for pocket-sized hybrid cameras. The SoC incorporates a flexible, low-power processor with megapixel photography, HD, and internet video capture. The A5s SoC and evaluation kit are available now. Ambarella expects that full HD consumer hybrid cameras based on the A5s platform will be priced at or under the critical US $149 end-user price threshold in 2010.
