Ambarella CV72S SoC


4K, 5nm Edge AI SoC for mainstream security cameras

Ambarella has announced the launch of its new CV72S System-on-Chip (SoC) which offers a powerful solution for next-generation smart cameras. The CV72S SoC delivers advanced computer vision capabilities that enable smart cameras to process ultra-high-definition video, high dynamic range imaging, and advanced deep learning features, making it ideal for a range of applications, including security, autonomous vehicles, and robotics.


One of the key technical features of the CV72S is its ability to process 8K video at 30 frames per second or 4K video at 120 frames per second. This high level of processing power is achieved through a custom-designed quad-core Arm Cortex-A72 CPU that delivers high-performance computing at low power consumption.

In addition to its processing capabilities, the CV72S integrates a range of advanced image processing features, including multi-exposure high dynamic range (HDR) tone mapping, advanced noise reduction, and color management. These features enable the SoC to deliver superior image quality in challenging lighting conditions, such as in outdoor surveillance applications.


The CV72S also includes hardware support for advanced deep-learning features such as object detection, tracking, and classification. The SoC includes a powerful neural network accelerator that can execute convolutional neural network (CNN) models with high throughput and low latency. This makes the CV72S ideal for a wide range of applications that require advanced computer vision capabilities.


The CV72S interfaces with a variety of industry-standard interfaces and protocols, making it easy for developers to integrate the SoC into their existing hardware designs. The SoC includes support for Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.0, and PCIe interfaces, as well as support for popular deep learning frameworks such as TensorFlow and Caffe.


In conclusion, the Ambarella CV72S SoC is a highly advanced solution for smart camera systems that offers a powerful combination of ultra-high-definition video processing, high dynamic range imaging, and advanced deep learning features. With its custom-designed quad-core Arm Cortex-A72 CPU, powerful neural network accelerator, and support for industry-standard interfaces and protocols, the CV72S is an ideal choice for developers and manufacturers of smart camera systems.
