Business Wire: Ambarella announced the iOne SoC HD camera for Android OS platform. The iOne is based on a triple ARM CPU architecture. Dual-core 1-GHz ARM Cortex A9 CPUs provide the horsepower to run Android applications while a third 533-MHz ARM-11 handles real-time camera tasks and enables camera boot time of under one second.
The camera part supports simultaneous still photography and HD video recording - up to 32MP still image processing with high speed capture of 5MP images at 30 fps, and Electronic Image Stabilization (EIS) with CMOS sensor rolling shutter correction.
The iOne SoC is sampling now to early access customers.
Venture Beat adds that cameras with the iOne chips will likely appear in the second half of 2011. Ambarella has 350 employees. Current Ambarella chips are used in devices such as the Sony Bloggie video camera and a host of others.
