Socionext adds to Milbeaut line-up

Socionext, the Fujitsu-Matsushita SoC design jv, is sampling a new addition to its Milbeaut family of image signal processors. Designated SC2002, and  nicknamed “M11S”, the chip is designed for security cameras.

Based on an ARM Cortex-A9 Dual 600MHz CPU, the IC offers the latest functionalities for capturing high-quality images under low light conditions such as the 3DNR (Three-Dimensional Noise Reduction) and the WDR (Wide Dynamic Range) technology.

The WDR synthesizes two images taken with different exposures and achieves the dynamic range of 120dB or better, which is essential when an image contains areas of different levels of light. The IC also features a high-performance DSP with built-in intelligence configured for a function-rich network camera system with video analysis capability.

The SC2002 also comes with a built-in HEVC encoder which allows H.264-quality images to be transmitted at half the bit-rate.

This reduces the number of video streams and required network bandwidth, enabling faster transfer of long video recordings to portable media like hard disk drives and SD memory cards.

The IC consumes 1.5W in typical operating conditions.
