Embedded Video : Boards and Solutions
Our core competence is the design and manufacture of specialized boards and system solutions for embedded video applications. Our product range includes solutions for video capture and real-time overlay (frame grabbers), video compression (and decompression) and video scan conversion. It is the combination of our hardware platforms and software development kits which enables developers to quickly create complex ruggedized solutions for video inspection, digital video recording, remote video streaming, surveillance and command & control systems.

Four channel live video monitoring mixed with 'graphics' control functions
Surveillance CCTV with motion detection and recording
Digital safety camera recording fortraffic management systems
Our board and module level products are based on industry standard form factors such as PC/104, PC/104-Plus, CompactPCI and mini PCI and enable developers to create high performance, ruggedized systems using low power processor boards.
Our system level products are designed to help reduce your time to market and minimize the technical effort required to create complete video systems. We offer standard system solutions for video recording, and video streaming and can also work with you to provide customized systems for specialized applications.
PC/104, PC/104-Plus, PCI-104 and PCI/104-Express Boards
The family of industry standard PC/104 form factor platforms is well established and is used in a wide array of rugged systems for defense equipment, industrial and machine control systems and specialized research projects. PC/104 is based on a rigid system of vertically stacked boards using reliable pin and socket connectors and is particularly popular for ruggedized, long-life projects. AMP offers a broad range of standard PC/104, PC/104-Plus, PCI-104 and PCI/104-Express boards for embedded video and control system applications. Please use our Embedded Video Selector Guide to quickly review all our available options for video systems.
CompactPCI is a rack based card system typically using industry standard 3U and 6U boards. The system is based on 32 and 64 bit PCI-bus specifications and uses a high reliability DIN style connector to connect to [hot swappable] backplanes.
mini PCI Modules
mini PCI was originally established as a highly compact, easy to fit, 32bit PCI-bus compatible module solution for laptops. A wide range of embedded processor boards now include one or more mini PCI slots.
AMP offers complete system solutions based on our range of embedded cards. These solutions
include both sub-system PC/104 stacks and full turn-key systems complete with approvals.
AMP has created a wealth of IP in the form of hardware designs and suites of software.
