Hybrid Camera Platforms Put Photos, Video on a Chip
Performing in affordably-priced, pocket-sized cameras, Ambarella’s A5 family of system-on-a-chip (SoC) platforms enable hybrid camera functions, such as 10 mega-pixel (MP) still images, full high-definition (HD) recording, and simultaneous dual-resolution recording for fast Internet sharing. The family consists of three products: A530, A550 and A570. The A530 IC can capture 10 MP still pictures while generating and compressing high-definition video in both 720p60 and 1080p30 formats. The A550 supports the standard HD broadcast format 1080i60. The A570 captures as many as 5.3 MP at 60 frames per second.
