Ambarella S2L IP Camera SoC Family Enables a New Generation of Intelligent Security Cameras

Ambarella, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMBA), a leading developer of low-power, HD video compression and image processing semiconductors, today introduced S2L, a family of Full HD camera System on Chips (SoCs) designed for consumer, small business and professional IP-camera security applications. The S2L’s Smart-AVCTM H.264 low bitrate streaming technology significantly reduces network bandwidth requirements, lowers cloud storage costs and supports the use of multiple cameras in home environments. Its flexible ARM Cortex-A9 CPU provides the performance required for intelligent video analytics such as intrusion detection, or audio analytics such as breaking glass detection. Additionally, the S2L dewarper can correct images captured from wide angle lenses to enable cameras that cover a wide viewing area.

“The S2L family brings advanced professional features to mainstream and consumer IP cameras, including Full HD video, High Dynamic Range (HDR) image processing, advanced analytics and wide angle viewing,” said Chris Day, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Ambarella. “Designed in an advanced 28nm process, S2L enables a new generation of intelligent, ultra-low power and small form factor IP cameras with outstanding video quality.”

The S2L family includes a series of software-compatible SoCs that range from 720p30 up to 1080p60 H.264 video and up to 5 MP resolution. Multi-exposure fusion HDR and Motion Compensated Temporal Filtering (MCTF) noise reduction deliver outstanding image quality even in challenging lighting conditions. The S2L includes a USB 2.0 host interface for direct connectivity to the latest WiFi chips for low cost, wide range wireless cameras. Power consumption for 1080p30 encoding is under 500mW including DRAM, enabling the development of small form factor or battery operated cameras.

S2L Feature Summary

  • 1080p60 H.264 encoding with multi-stream support to enable independent resolutions, frame rate and quality (for example 1080p60 H.264 + 720p30 H.264 + 480p30 H.264 + MJPEG 1fps)
  • H.264-compliant Smart-AVC streaming for bitrates as low as 600kbps for 1080p30, and 300kbps for 720p30
  • Advanced dynamic range (WDR and HDR) engine with multi-exposure fusion
  • ARM Cortex-A9 CPU with NEON DSP extensions, Floating Point Unit (FPU), and 128KB L2 cache provides headroom for customer applications as well as intelligent analytics processing
  • Real-time hardware-accelerated de-warping engine
  • Image Sensor Pipeline with high speed SLVS/MIPI/LVCMOS interfaces, supporting up to 14 Megapixel (MP) sensor resolution and 480MPixel/s data rate
  • Rich set of interfaces includes 10/100Mbps Ethernet, USB 2.0 host and device, three SD card controllers with SDXC support
  • Small 11x11mm package available

Pricing and Availability

The S2L SoC family will be demonstrated at the ISC West 2014 International Security Exhibition and Exposition in Las Vegas from April 2-4, 2014. Invitations to ISC West or product and pricing information can be obtained directly from Ambarella.

High-velocity engineering teams are applying not only continuous delivery processes, but also lessons in experimentation from established leaders like Amazon, Netflix, and Facebook. These companies have made experimentation a foundation for their release processes, allowing them to try out major feature releases and redesigns within smaller groups before making them broadly available. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Brian Lucas, Senior Staff Engineer at Optimizely, will discuss how by using...
In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
