GE introduced their GRA112 3U VPX Graphics Board. The GE GRA112 features a 384-core NVIDIA Kepler architecture-based EXK107 GPU, PCI Express Gen 3 interconnect, and 2 GBytes of GDDR5 memory. The graphics board is ideal for both demanding graphical applications and GPGPU (general purpose computing on a graphics processing unit) applications like ISR (intelligence, surveillance, reconnaissance), radar and sonar.
Vecow introduced their VSM-200 series 4-ch/8-ch video/audio capture card. The extended temperature board is ideal for industrial level systems that require small footprint and steady performance under harsh environments. The VSM-200 features the Stackable Unified Module Interconnect Technology (SUMIT) interface. VSM-200 series have closely spaced pins (fine pitch) to minimize the board space. In addition, the connector system of VSM-200 series can handle PCI Express and USB high-frequency signals.
Texas Instruments (TI) announced the TMS320DM8168 and TMS320DM8148 DaVinci digital media processors. The high-performance DM8168 DaVinci digital media processor supports up to three simultaneous 1080p60 frames per second (fps) video streams, 12 simultaneous 720p30 fps video streams or a combination of lower resolution streams. The lower-power DM8148 DaVinci digital media processor offers a 1080p60 fps video stream, three simultaneous 720p30 fps video streams or multiple lower resolution streams at 3 watts. The DM8168 is sampling today with production prices starting at $75 per 1ku. The DM8148 will start sampling in 3Q2011. Production pricing starts at $51 per 1ku.
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.
ADLINK Technology introduced the HDV62 PCI Express high-definition frame grabber. The ADLINK HDV62 features a field programmable gate array (FPGA), 512 MB memory buffer, uncompressed image acquisition and video streaming in full 1080p HD. The frame grabber offers 1920x1080p resolution, progressive scan, and noise reduction for greater image quality. The HDV62 offers the ability to stream uncompressed image to the host PC, in addition to color space conversion in real-time via on-board hardware in order to offload repetitive tasks from the host CPU. The HDV62 is now available with a list price of $999.
Texas Instruments (TI) announced the DM368EUCDK embedded USB camera development kit and DM368ECDK embedded communications development kit. The embedded video development kits feature interactive HD video communications, improved image quality, and intelligent video encoding. The embedded development kits also provide up to a 5 times reduction in encoding bit rate for improved video quality and network bandwidth. The DM368EUCDK is priced at USD $795 and the DM368ECDK is priced at USD $1,195.
Texas Instruments introduced the TMS320DM368 DaVinci video processor. The TI DaVinci TMS320DM368 supports full HD 1080p H.264 encoding. The DM368 is ideal for HD video cameras, real-time digital video recorders (DVRs), HD video communications systems, and digital signage. The TMS320DM368 DaVinci video processor is available for sampling and is priced at USD $29 in 1,000 unit quantities (1ku).
Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the new TMS320DM8168 DaVinci video system-on-chip (SoC). The DM8168 consolidates all of the capture, compression, display and control functionalities of a high definition (HD), multi-channel system on a single chip. The DaVinci video SoC features a 1 GHz ARM Cortex-A8 and a 1 GHz TI C674x digital signal processor (DSP) core. The DM8168 reduces system electronic bill of materials (eBOM) costs by 50%. It replaces the functionality of over 10 discrete components. The DM8168 DaVinci video SoC will begin sampling in the second quarter.
Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) announced the DMVA1 SoC. With DMVA1, engineers can deploy smart analytics functions such as people counting, trip zone, intelligent motion detection, camera tamper detection and streaming metadata. By coupling the vision co-processor with smart analytics all on a single chip, designers can reduce the cost of video analytics-enabled IP cameras by an order of magnitude. The DMVA1 video security camera SoC will begin sampling in the second quarter to early adopter video security customers.
