SoC captures high-resolution stills, HD video simultaneously

Santa Clara, Calif.—Ambarella Inc. has introduced the A390, a system-on-a-chip (SoC) that simultaneously captures 8Mpixels still pictures while generating and compressing high-definition (HD) video in either1080p60 or 1080i60 formats.

The device stores still images in either RAW or compressed formats, implementing the JPEG standard at a rate of one picture per second without
interrupting full HD-video recording. Working at a data capture rate as fast as 480Mpixels-per-second, the A390's speed exceeds 60 frames-per-second at 8Mpixels.

The A390 SoC is the third member in the A3 SoC platform series targeted at hybrid cameras and supports the emerging H.264 AVC video standard.
