ON Semiconductor has announced an open imaging platform aimed at low power video streaming applications. According to the company, the MatrixCam video development kit (VDK) aims to promote greater video adoption within Internet of Things (IoT) products, as well as speeding up OEMs' time to market.

The platform is geared for home automation systems, building access devices, baby monitors, advanced lighting controls and smart appliances. The fully integrated video development solution delivers low power 30fps intelligent streaming over Wi-Fi and Ethernet, added the company.

MatrixCam VDK

The MatrixCam VDK claims to offer 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 GUI, or using a dedicated mobile application.

Numerous interconnectivity options are built into the MatrixCam platform including Wi-Fi (802.11b/g/n), Ethernet (10/100Mb/s) and BLE. It features the company's AR023Z 1/3in format CMOS image sensor that has a 1928 x 1088 resolution active-pixel array that promises remarkable low light performance.

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