Time to market is critical for the
successful introduction of nextgeneration products into new markets
and for the evolution of existing products.
In collaboration with Freescale
Semiconductor and Aptina Imaging,
Au-Zone Technologies has developed
the i.MX27 IP camera reference platform
specifically to minimize development
time and project risk of bringing H.264
enabled IP camera devices to market.
Au-Zone provides development
platform customers with technical
support and custom engineering design
services ranging from specific areas of
expertise to complete, turnkey product
Support for external data storage to SD/
MMC card, USB or hard disk
Design engineers seeking a development
platform for a high-performance digital IP
video surveillance device need look no
further than Freescale Semiconductor.
The i.MX27 IP camera reference design
provides the requisite hardware engine and
robust software applications to enable an
OEM to quickly add their differentiating IP
or go straight to manufacture.
