ON Semiconductor Unveils 1080p Video Development Kit for IoT

Fully integrated Video Development solution delivers low power 30 fps intelligent streaming over Wi-Fi and Ethernet

PHOENIX, Ariz. – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, has introduced an open imaging platform for low power video streaming applications. The MatrixCam™ video development kit (VDK) has been developed specifically to encourage greater video adoption within Internet of Things (IoT) products, as well as accelerating OEMs’ time to market. Among its key applications are home automation systems, building access devices, baby monitors, advanced lighting controls and smart appliances. MatrixCam video development kit hardware and software design documents are available for download from ON Semiconductor and its partners portal.

The MatrixCam VDK offers smart streaming capability, with wake-up being initiated by Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) or through the motion-detecting integrated passive infrared sensor. Upon wake-up, a push notification is sent to an assigned portable electronic device (smartphone, tablet computer, etc.) alerting the user that a live stream (or a still image) should be viewed. It can connect to cloud services such as Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform, with support for both video-on-demand and live streaming. The VDK can be configured via a simple web-based Graphical User Interface, or using a dedicated mobile application.

Numerous interconnectivity options are built into the MatrixCam platform - including Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n), Ethernet (10/100 megabit/second) and BLE. It features the company’s AR023Z 1/3-inch format CMOS image sensor which has a 1928 (V) x1088 (H) resolution active-pixel array that provides industry-leading low light performance.

“The MatrixCam video development kit is a complete production-ready camera solution for IoT,” states Radhika Arora, IoT Product Line Manager, Automotive Imaging and Scanning Division at ON Semiconductor. “This highly optimized platform showcases ON Semiconductor’s superior imaging technology and accelerates customers’ ability to deliver cutting-edge solutions to the IoT market.”


The MatrixCam video development kit documentation, BOM and software are available at  Prototype units are available for sale priced at $400 per unit.
