New S5L 14nm SoCs offer quad-core CPUs for advanced analytics with
extremely low power
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMBA) a leading developer of low-power, HD and
Ultra HD video processing semiconductors, today introduced the S5L and
S5LM SoC (System on Chip) families to enable a new generation of 4K IP
security cameras. The S5L is designed for professional IP cameras and
includes 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) processing, multi-streaming,
on-chip lens distortion correction, and dual video inputs. The S5LM
targets the home monitoring market, including battery-powered IP cameras
and video doorbell cameras, and uses a single 16-bit DDR memory for
low-power operation. Both chip families feature a quad-core ARM®
Cortex®-A53 for advanced analytics, and are fabricated in low-power 14nm
"S5L and S5LM address the full range of IP security cameras, spanning
high-end professional models down to consumer home monitoring cameras,"
said Chris Day, VP of marketing and business development at Ambarella.
"With full 4Kp30 SmartHEVCTM video, HDR, advanced low light
processing and a quad-core CPU, the S5L is an ideal IP Camera platform
as the market moves from HD to 4K resolution. Additionally, the S5LM's
low power, advanced video analytics and excellent low light processing
will enable doorbell and battery-powered cameras with the industry's
highest image quality and longest battery life."
Both SoC families support Ambarella's SmartHEVCTM (H.265) and
SmartAVCTM (H.264) algorithms to deliver 4Kp30 video with
bitrates as low as 512 Kbits/second, while maintaining excellent video
quality. The HDR processing at full 4K resolution provides detailed
video images even under high-contrast lighting conditions. Powerful
quad-core ARM® Cortex®-A53 CPUs support smart analytics, including
object and person detection, to reduce false alarms and maximize battery
life in battery-powered designs. The S5L's on-chip lens distortion
correction engine supports wide angle lenses up to 180-degrees, while
the dual independent video inputs facilitate seamless dual-lens designs.
Both SoC families achieve extremely low-power operation and can deliver
4Kp30 video at under 1.5 Watts or full HD at under 0.5 Watts, making
them ideal for small form factor and battery-powered designs.
Ambarella will demonstrate the new SoCs at a private, invitation-only
event held during the ISC West Show in Las Vegas, April 5 - 8, 2017.
