InnoPhase IoT, Inc., a fabless semiconductor company specializing in ultra-low power Wi-Fi IoT solutions, unveiled its Talaria TWO™ Ultra-low power (ULP) Wi-Fi optimized market-ready solutions for cloud-connected IP video IoT devices. Applications include battery-operated video cameras, smart video doorbells, wearables, smart appliances, home security cameras and in-vehicle dashboard monitoring device.
Talaria TWO features for video use-cases include
Integrated Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) for easy provisioning Ultra-Low-Power (ULP) Wi-Fi at BLE power levels Complete networking TCP-IP stack on integrated controller enables low latency, always ON cloud connectivity and eliminates image loss issues Robust throughput under noisy conditions; supports up to 2K camera resolution
Untethered wireless cloud connectivity and long battery life are two major design barriers for video IoT. Only approximately 10% of video cameras, for example, are currently battery-operated primarily due to battery life limitations of 3-6 months. Moving to a wireless format, however, has so far been problematic, as ubiquitous Wi-Fi is inherently power hungry, rapidly draining video camera’s batteries. Location of the IoT device often makes access difficult and changing batteries cumbersome and time consuming. The InnoPhase IoT solution features 40% lower power consumption and 1+ year battery life performance, coupled with the availability of a variety of market ready solutions from OEMs and ODMs.
“The video camera market is ripe for wireless solutions that can speed time to market, ensure low power consumption and extend battery life, and at the same time simplify the design process. InnoPhase IoT’s Talaria TWO platform fit that bill,” said David Ho, Director at Product Marketing at OMNIVISION. “I expect the IoT camera market to grow rapidly with this dramatic increase in battery-life and lower energy consumption,” he added.
According to Mr. Hao, Product Manager at Hualai Technology, an ODM focused on smart video camera manufacturing, “We selected the OMNIVISION OA8000 platform as it is the best performing low power consumption video processing solution, and it has been extensively used by tier 1 customers worldwide. Combined with InnoPhase IoT’s Talaria TWO Wi-Fi/BLE module, it enables ultra-low power and direct-to-cloud connectivity for battery operated cameras. This allows us to offer quick time to market video products for our end customers.”
“We offer a complete solution including hardware, software, integration, certification and cloud connectivity that’s available now for evaluation, production and deployment,” said Innophase IoT President and COO Wiren Perera. “The InnoPhase IoT low-power solution future-proofs camera systems, allowing for enhanced features such as artificial intelligence (AI) and emerging use cases to be incorporated, while meeting market needs of long battery life.”
A reference kit includes hardware and software integration with an image signal processor (ISP), cloud connectivity software and access to original design manufacturers.
InnoPhase IoT will demonstrate its market-ready capabilities at the IoT Tech Expo in Santa Clara California, May 17-18, booth 260, and at the Embedded Vision Summit in Santa Clara, California, May 23-24, booth 904.
