Rhonda Software

Rhonda Software is a camera design house and a close partner of Ambarella, Inc., with a track record of over 25 years in R&D. Rhonda has worked with many companies helping them to develop their products in such areas as virtual reality (VR), wearable and drone cameras, automotive and robotic vision systems and many other applications.

As a service provider, Rhonda facilitates innovative camera product development with a major focus on complex designs and unique functionality including support of Artificial Intelligence and Neural Networks running on the network-edge device.

To help customers speed up their time to market with a camera implementation, Rhonda offers System on a Module (SoM) solutions based on various Ambarella Systems on Chip (SoCs): A12, H2, H22, S5L, CV22.

 

 

Rhonda H22 SOMH22 SOM

Rhonda CV22 SOMH2 SOM

CV22 SoM is based on Ambarella® CV22A75™ SoC and provides image processing capabilities with hardware acceleration of Convolutional Neural Networks for smart cameras with embedded Computer Vision.

The platform features:

  • Convolutional neural network (CNN) / deep learning (DNN) HW acceleration

  • 4K@60 H.264 / H.265 recording performance

  • WiFi (802.11a/b/g/n/ac) and Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity

  • SD card and Micro-USB slots

  • HDMI, Ethernet, USB, LCD, battery operation, audio codec IC, GNSS and other peripherals available with customized Carrier board

Rhonda SOM SDKRhonda SOM SDK

Rhonda SOM is supplied with flexible MVP FW which supports the major scenarios and is highly configurable. However, since the single FW would not meet all of the possible requirements for all customers, Rhonda is introducing the Rhonda SOM SDK.

  • SOM SDK allows extending the standard implementation with custom logic, providing controls to all camera functions
  • SOM SDK allows focusing on user-level features without needing to dig into low-level HW programming
  • SOM SDK is SOM agnostic – an Application written for one SOM model will work on other SOM model (in case it supports all of the required camera features)

SOM SDK contains 2 main parts:

 

SDK ON LINUX PC:

  • Easy installation on any Linux workstation
  • Handles environment setup and tool chain setup for cross-compilation
  • Allows integrating custom packages and 3rd party libraries
  • Handles all dependencies
  • Generates a single file with the Customer’s application

RUNTIME ENVIRONMENT ON SOM:

  • Launches a containerized application on target device using process isolation mechanisms provided by Linux kernel
  • Execution in sandbox, reducing risk of system failures
