Keywords:Ambarella A390? SoC? hybrid camera?

Ambarella Inc. has introduced the A390 SoC that simultaneously captures 8Mpixel 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 60fps 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.

"Ambarella's A390 combines the best of still photography and HD video recording," remarked Les Kohn, Ambarella chief technology officer. "Consumers will be able to capture both still photos and HD video at the same instant reaching new levels of quality and product flexibility."
