The 3 videos at ambarella is nice to see and estimate their chips capability. The videos show the fastest moving objects in the main schene and also the natural movement in the back rounds without reducing the quality any where. Nice to watch them and experience the real videography.

A great SoC alone doesn't make a great camera. Either Ambarella manages to get design wins inside cameras from Canon, Nikon, or other brand names, or they build their own hi-end cameras to compete with those brands. Otherwise, the company might see its chips in some lousy, low-end cameras with thin profit margins.

These guys' history - C-Cube, LSI Logic, Intel, Sun, National, S3 Graphics, MPEG group - I'll take a good look at this just on that basis.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
