Ambarella, Inc. Announces Availability of S2Lm-Based Battery-Powered IP Camera Reference Design
Apr 13 15
Ambarella, Inc. announced availability of the S2Lm-based battery-powered IP camera reference design. The reference design enables fast development of a new generation of small, high-quality, battery-powered Full HD security cameras suitable for both professional and consumer security applications. The reference design is based on Ambarella’s new S2Lm ultra low-power HD camera System-On-Chip (SoC), which can start recording Full HD 1080p30 video in less than 500ms from wake up, and provides up to six months of battery life. A full-featured Linux® Software Development Kit (SDK) is included for networking and customer applications including cloud streaming and analytics. The Ambarella S2Lm reference design supports a feature set similar to that found on high-quality AC-powered IP cameras. Advanced image processing provides clear video in challenging lighting conditions, while the company's SmartAVC(TM) streaming technology delivers very low bit rates even for Full HD video streaming. The S2Lm SoC includes a powerful ARM® Cortex-A9 CPU to run customer applications including advanced analytics that minimize false motion notifications. Additionally, the SoC integrates on-chip de-warping of wide-angle lenses for cameras with a wide field of view. The Linux SDK includes reference implementations for low-power standby operation, wake-on-Wi-Fi and fast boot to Linux.
