The S6106, Stretch Inc.'s latest member of its S6000 family of software configurable processors, boasts its low-operating power and a compact 17mm x 17mm plastic BGA package. This is suitable for space and power constrained applications.

Featured in Stretch's S6106 IP Camera Reference Design Kit (RDK), this software processor is capable of multistream H.264 encoding and embedded video analytics.

At the core of the S6106 is the same S6 SCP Engine used in all S6000 family devices. Stretch's second generation Instruction Set Extension Fabric and highly optimized Programmable Accelerator gives the device high-processing capability while retaining a small footprint and low power use.

With two S6000 family high speed data ports, as well as a GbE port and an array of low speed interfaces, the S6106 fits high-performance video processing and embedded applications. It encodes two H.264 streams at 30fps, or simultaneously performing video analytics and a single stream of standard definition H.264 encoding.

The S6106 IP Camera RDK comes in a very small form factor 32mm x 177mm box format. It uses Pixim Inc.'s latest generation image sensor module for wide dynamic range and small size. The IP Camera employs the Stretch Intelligent Encoder offering video analytics, Constant Quality encoding and dynamic control of the encoded bit stream to reduce network bandwidth.

It will remain compatible with future codec plug-ins such as H.264SVC, the scalable video extension to the H.264 standard.
