In order to cope with the delayed delivery of video conferencing cameras due to chip shortages, Eyqoo decisively replaced the original chip solution with an Ambarella chip solution. It is our consistent goal to provide the market with products with stable quality and excellent functions. How does the Ambarella chip help Eyqoo achieve this goal?
Why choose Ambarella
Founded in 2004, Ambarella is a semiconductor company focusing on AI vision chips, focusing on high-definition video image processing and artificial intelligence computer vision and other technical fields.
In 2005, Ambarella launched the first broadcast-grade professional video encoding chip, and it immediately became the leader in the professional HD video encoding market.
In 2007, Ambarella (Shanghai) Semiconductor was established and a branch was established in Shenzhen. Ambarella’s R&D centers in Shanghai which based in the Chinese market. The strong technical expert team can not only respond quickly to domestic customer needs, but also more strongly support customers to create differentiated and innovative products.
In 2012, Ambarella was listed on Nasdaq with its outstanding technical strength.
In 2018, more than 300 million high-definition camera chips were mass-produced and shipped. Ambarella has achieved fruitful results in the fields of consumer vision, security, and automotive.
In 2019, Ambarella stood out from 43,000 global suppliers and won the Global Excellent Supplier Award. customers generally recognize excellent chip performance, rigorous quality management, and stable and efficient supply chain system.
In recent years, Ambarella has increased its R&D investment in the field of AI computer vision, and a series of SOCs with high performance and low power consumption equipped with AI engines have come out. As of the first quarter of 2021, Ambarella has accumulated shipping more than 2 million CV series AI vision SoCs.
This year, Ambarella launched the CV5 series chip with 5nm advanced process, which can support up to 14 channels of CMOS camera video input and corresponding AI parallel processing. Compared with the previous generation, the CV5 series chips have doubled the encoding performance and memory bandwidth, while reducing power consumption by 30%.
1. Higher image processing capability
Image processing is the core competitiveness of video conferencing cameras. And Ambarella’s leading edge in image processing technology (ISP) has brought the image processing capability of Eyqoo products to a higher level. Ambarella’s ISPs have long been synonymous with high-quality graphics in the industry. The performance of the ISP not only affects the sensory perception of the human eye, but also affects the effectiveness and accuracy of the AI algorithm.
2. Lower power consumption
Another benefit of using Ambarella chips is low power consumption. Low power consumption not only means energy saving, but also means that the heat dissipation design can be simplified to save hardware costs, reduce the hidden dangers caused by heat accumulation, and improve safety.
How low is the power consumption of the Ambarella chip? When performing image processing on an 8-megapixel video and performing 8M-pixel 30-frame encoding, the quad-core ARM CPU and CVflow® AI hardware acceleration engine are fully powered, running traditional algorithms and convolutional neural networks with 80% of the load respectively. The total power consumption of CV22 plus LPDDR4 is less than two watts. The CV2X chip doesn’t even need a heatsink in a normal temperature working environment.
3. More efficient video coding
Eyqoo takes advantage of another major technical advantage of Ambarella, video encoding. Because broadcast TV-grade professional video encoders are Ambarella’s technology is core. After years of accumulation, its own encoding technology has become more mature and efficient. It has many outstanding technical features, such as: special encoding can be optimized for fast-moving scenes or static scenes; support for dynamic adjustment of code rate and encoding parameter optimization at the macroblock level; combined with AI to optimize encoding for specific target scenes.
4. Protect customer information security
Because Eyqoo’s customers are mostly enterprises, in order to protect against hacking and user privacy data. Eyqoo integrates the protection of customer information security into product design. Ambarella’s CV series SoC has built a hardware foundation for information security inside the chip. This includes the establishment of a secure execution environment, a chain of trust, and a signature verification mechanism. On this basis, Ambarella launched the “Rock” trusted computing architecture, covering data storage protection, data transmission protection, intellectual property protection, user privacy protection, system integrity, system reinforcement and other aspects of information security.
Eyqoo uses the Ambarella chip solution to upgrade video conferencing camera products. This not only ensures product supply but also achieves a great comprehensive improvement in product performance. As a partner of Eyqoo, you no longer need to worry about supply and product quality issues. Only need to do a good job in channel management and end-consumer services to get huge profits.
