Ambarella Introduces CV5 High Performance AI Vision Processor for Single 8K and Multi-Imager AI Camera – Tech

Business Wire India

Ambarella, Inc. (Nasdaq: AMBA), an AI vision silicon company that unveiled the CV5 today, is an artificial intelligence (AI) vision processor capable of recording 8K video or four 4K video streams. The new system on chip (SoC) will enable the development of intelligent automotive camera systems, consumer cameras (drones, action and 360 °) and robotic cameras. It combines Umbrella’s powerful CVflow AI engine with dual-arm® A76 CPUs to provide the performance required for a wide range of AI-based algorithms. Its Advanced Image Signal Processor (ISP) can simultaneously process images for both human viewing and machine processing. Built in advanced 5 nm process technology, the CV5 consumes 2 watts of power while encoding full 8K video at 30 watts per second.

“With the introduction of CV5, Ambarella is defining the next generation of automotive, consumer and robotic cameras,” said Fermi Wang, CEO of Ambrella. “By combining 8K single-channel and 4K multi-channel recording with the high performance of our CVflow AI engine, we are enabling cameras with the highest quality imaging and innovative new AI features.”

In automotive video telematics applications, the CV5 provides the performance required to encode multiple video streams from front ADAS, driver monitoring, cabin monitoring, and side-view cameras. Its CVflow AI engine can simultaneously run advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) algorithms such as lane departure, and forward collision warning as well as driver monitoring algorithms such as driver driver detection. The combination of high-resolution video capture with advanced AI processing enables ADAS cameras to recognize images over long distances and with high accuracy.

The CV5 SoC’s exceptional low power consumption also makes it an ideal solution for high-resolution and high frame-rate action, the next generation of 360 ° and virtual reality (VR) cameras, offering 8K recording and playback in much smaller form. I do designs.

In robot and drone applications, the CV5 AI engine of CV5 can accelerate simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), path planning and obstacle detection, and avoidance algorithms for navigation and autonomous operation. For drone-based aerial videography and cinematography, the CV5 can perform simultaneous flight control and navigation functions, while recording up to 8K resolution video recording at 60 frames per second.

The CV5 SoC shares common SDK and computer vision (CV) equipment with Umbrella’s other CVflow SoC families, simplifying the development of cameras with multiple price and performance options. A full set of CV tools helps customers port their own neural network to CV5, including a compiler, debugger, and support for industry-standard machine learning frameworks, such as PyTorch, ONNX, Kaif, And tenserflow, As well as comprehensive guidelines for performance optimization of the Conventional Neural Network (CNN).
