Ambarella Inc. announced availability of the S2Lm-based battery-powered IP camera reference design. The reference design enables fast development of a new generation of small, high-quality, battery-powered full HD security cameras suitable for both professional and consumer security applications. The reference design is based on Ambarella’s new S2Lm ultra low-power HD camera System-On-Chip (SoC), which can start recording full HD 1080p30 video in less than 500ms from wake up and provides up to six months of battery life. A full-featured Linux Software Development Kit is included for networking and customer applications including cloud streaming and analytics.

“Battery-powered IP cameras support new use cases that are relevant to a large segment of the security camera market,”said Chris Day, vice president, marketing and business development at Ambarella. “With no wires to worry about, S2Lm-based cameras can be installed in places where getting to a power outlet may be difficult. In addition, these cameras can be moved around for short-term monitoring, without the need to reinstall the camera after every move.”
