Microsemi – IP security cameras: key components for a growing segment of the security product market


According to IMS Research, the IP security camera segment is expected to account for more than 40% of the world security camera market by 2017.

Today’s IP security cameras feature new video-processing, motor-control and voice- processing capabilities, and need to process a large amount of data and transform it into information that can help users to identify threats and respond to them appropriately. Modern cameras thus commonly need high- speed wired or wireless internet connectivity. Many need to be deployed in harsh outdoor conditions, in which energy efficiency is of high importance.

Microsemi products which may be used in the next generation of IP security cameras include:
• the SmartFusion2 SoC FPGA
• Audio processors
• Ethernet PHYs
• Power over Ethernet (PoE) systems
• NTP servers
