Ambarella Introduces Automotive Multi-Camera Electronic Mirror and Surround View SoCs
New Ambarella A9AQ SoC to Power Latest Gentex Three-Camera Vision System
The Ambarella A9AQ provides a single-chip solution for three camera side-view and rear-view electronic mirror systems. Its multi-exposure HDR processing provides superior visibility even in low light or high contrast scenes. LED flicker mitigation dramatically reduces artifacts introduced by LED headlights and traffic signs. The A9AQ can simultaneously drive video to up to three in-car displays for rear, left side and right side electronic mirror applications.
"A9AQ brings Ambarella's signature video quality to automotive
applications," said Fermi Wang, president and CEO of
"We are also pleased to announce that Gentex, the automotive industry's
leading supplier of rear vision solutions including camera and display
mirror systems, is a key partner for A9AQ system developments," added
Wang. "Gentex has led the industry with their state-of-the-art rear
vision solutions and we look forward to seeing their
"Gentex is currently launching a new hybrid, three-camera rear vision
system that streams rear video to a rear-view mirror integrated display
in multiple composite views," said
For multi-camera parking assistance applications, the A9AQ's on-chip H.264 encoder enables simultaneous recording of multiple camera streams as well as video streaming to smartphones over WiFi or through in-car 4G hotspots. It provides realistic 3D HD scene rendering using a dedicated image processing engine which provides de-warping and seamless stitching of video from multiple cameras.
The A9AQ's multi-channel image processing removes the need for a dedicated ISP chip in every camera module, enabling highly compact camera modules while improving video quality, reducing power consumption, and lowering system cost. It integrates a four-channel de-serializer, removing the need for external de-serializer chips in multi-channel camera systems. The Ambarella B6 family of SERDES chips provides up to 3Gpixel raw data throughput, allowing Ultra HD at 30 frames per second or Full HD at 60 frames per second with multi-exposure HDR data.
