AVTECH reduced the system cost of its new dome IP surveillance camera by 45% by replacing a low density FPGA with eASIC’s zero-mask charge Nextreme ASIC. The Nextreme device consolidated multiple high-performance image processing functions and enabled AVTECH to increase the camera features while significantly reducing overall system cost and power consumption.
AVTECH is one of an increasing number of IP video surveillance equipment suppliers that are lowering system costs using eASIC’s Nextreme devices. Traditional cost reduction paths involving standard cell ASICs are becoming less viable as NRE costs soar and the market demands the fast introduction of new features. eASIC’s Nextreme family of zero mask-charge and no minimum order ASIC devices provides designers with the low cost benefits of traditional ASIC, combined with a rapid design cycle and only a four to five week silicon turnaround time.
