GEO Semiconductor, Inc. Key Developments

on Semiconductor, GainSpan and Geo Semiconductor Announce Strategic Partnership to Address Emerging Opportunities in IoT Space

ON Semiconductor is collaborating with GainSpan and GEO Semiconductor to rapidly respond to the ever-growing potential of the Internet of Things (IoT). Through this partnership, customers will benefit from the leadership each company has shown in its respective field: ON Semiconductor’s advanced and expansive portfolio of image sensors, GEO’s highly cost-effective and power efficient image signal processing technology, and GainSpan’s expertise in low power Wi-Fi solutions. A highly optimized IoT video reference design is the trio’s first collaboration. The GS-AR0330-Based Full HD Video, available via GainSpan and its distributors, targets smart 1,080p video streaming over Wi-Fi. Through wireless connectivity, it can interface seamlessly with smartphones that use either iOS or Android operating systems. The solution comprises all of the hardware and software needed for engineers to quickly and simply add video streaming capabilities into their IoT-based designs, thereby facilitating the development process and accelerating time to market. The video reference design is accompanied by a complete software suite, plus a series of sophisticated mobile application programming interfaces (APIs). Central to this solution is ON Semiconductor’s AR0330 1/3-Inch optical format CMOS image sensor, which delivers superior imaging quality in low light conditions. Using its 2,304 x 1,296 active-pixel array, this device has the capacity to capture 3 megapixel (MP) still images. It also incorporates advanced on-chip camera features, such as column/row subsampling, windowing, mirroring and snapshot modes. The video reference design’s processing resource offers H.264 encoding/compression to its high performance, ultra-low power multi-mode SoC. This can deal with 1,080p high definition resolution image content at 30 frames per second (fps), as well as supporting auto white balance, auto exposure and auto focus functions. By detecting movement, the on-board passive infra-red sensor can be utilized for rapid wake up of the system from standby, so that video streaming can begin.

GainSpan and GEO Semiconductor Introduce Full HD Video Application Development Kit

GainSpan Corporation and GEO Semiconductor Inc. announced a Full HD resolution Video Application Development Kit (ADK) targeted at IOT applications in the surveillance, security and automotive markets. The extremely low power Full HD video ADK is a complete hardware and software platform for the emerging IOT video applications, and accelerates time to market for customers seeking to add high-quality IP video streaming capabilities to their products. Example applications include battery powered Wi-Fi IP cameras, doorbell cameras, cloud cameras, automotive /backup cameras and toy cameras. The GS2000 Full HD Video Application Development Kit (ADK) features the GS2000 SOC, and GEO Semiconductor MAX64380 H.264 encoder SOC. The ADK leverages the key advantages of the GS2000--high data rates supported in the 802.11b/g/n SOC, multi-mode connectivity, extremely low standby current and low power operation. The GEO Semiconductor MAX64380 features high dynamic range ISP and Full HD (1,920 x1,080p 30 fps) resolution, resulting in excellent video quality, full duplex audio processing and echo cancellation. Service providers can realize new revenue generating opportunities by taking advantage of the cloud connectivity features enabled by the GS2000. The ADK enables features such as motion alerts, integration with cloud services for push notifications, live viewing or cloud storage. The GS2000 SOC acting as a concurrent Limited AP enables new applications by adding connectivity to other devices in the home such as thermostats, and a variety of sensors in the home like door/window sensors and dangerous gas sensors. In addition to the GS2000MIZ module and GEO H.264 encoder, the new ADK includes a low-power mono audio codec, and mono 2.6W amplifier. The ADK supports multiple streaming protocols including the commonly used RTP/RTSP and UDP. The ADK includes embedded software compatible with iOS and Android mobile applications for smartphone and tablets. The GainSpan embedded software running on the Wi-Fi module offers complete Wi-Fi functionality and networking stack and services. It also supports a complete suite of security protocols, including WPA/WPA2-enterprise and personal security modes, legacy WEP encryption and upper layer security protocols such as TLS/SSL and HTTPs.
