BusinessWire: Ambarella introduces the S5L and S5LM SoC families for 4K IP security cameras. The S5L is designed for professional IP cameras and includes 4K 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 chips are fabricated in low-power 14nm process.
Both SoC families support H.265 and H.264 algorithms to deliver 4Kp30 video with bitrates as low as 512 Kbits/second, while maintaining video quality. A quad-core ARM A53 CPUs support smart analytics, including object and person detection, to reduce false alarms and maximize battery life in battery-powered 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.
