The STV0991 is a versatile system-on-chip device designed for automotive, security and a multitude of other camera applications. From video and audio input through HDR image signal processing, lens distortion correction, graphics overlay, video compression, video analytics acceleration, CPU, operating and non-volatile memory, media access controller, to video and audio outputs and communication interfaces, it comprises all elements to support compact, low bill-of-material and low energy-consumption camera applications. No external memory chips such as DRAM or Flash are required for its operation, predictive H.264 video encoding inclusive.
With STMicroelectronics core chip STV0991 plus 1.3 megapixel high dynamic range image sensor VG6640, Avnet designed the camera based Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) which are used to help the driver in the complex process of controlling the vehicle. These systems is characterized by the use of video sensors to analyze the environment around the car and to "look" also inside the car for monitoring the driver.
