Analog Devices launches the IP surveillance and machine vision camera reference design based on the Blackfin BF526C processor.
The reference design implements a complete IP video camera, including the camera lens and a D1/HD1/CIF resolution image sensor and it also aims to help engineers quickly develop and customize “smart camera” designs.
The reference design includes a Blackfin processor running the uClinux operating system. The processor provides camera developers with an integrated audio codec (SSM2603 derivative), streaming video and IP protocols, on-chip DRAM memory, and interfaces for 10/100 Ethernet, USB and SD storage, as well as a native RS-232 port.
The reference design unit can capture video at CIF, VGA, and D1 resolutions at either 30 fps (NTSC) or 25 fps (PAL). The fully programmable Blackfin solution allows for numerous video compression standards such as H.264 and MPEG4 while the audio is encoded to the G.729 standard. The camera supports 2-way audio for communication from control centers to camera locations. Pan-Tilt-Zoom control is supported through either Pelo-P or Pelo-D protocol.
