  • Most advanced SoC +sensor

    Good evening guys,

    Which is a most advances SoC today? Ambarella S5? HiSilicon ? BIONZ X? Any other?

    What about sensor - who makes most advanced sensor today? Sony or Omnivision? Is there anybody else out there who makes premium quality imaging sensors? I`m struggling to find a Sony webpage where they list all their available sensor. Can anybody help?

    Thank you

    Hi.

    I suppose there will be reasonably cheap action cam solutions capable 4K30/60 + H.265 in the nearest future. Maybe we will see some new names like Goke from Chinese government. Today's mass-production SoCs like Ambarella S2/S2l (A9/A12) or Hisilicon 3516A can't match all these 3 criteria: price, 4k30 and H.265...

        Yes Ambarella H-series seems to be the most advanced SoCs at the moment, but for some reason products based on these chips are not at the market yet.

        The ideal sensor should be like this: Low-cost [email protected] in 1/1.8" size

            Sony IMX117 is the best value for its price.

              Ignore the price - which one is latest and most advanced? I canot find a Sony webpage with all their sensors.

                  I'd be happy with an imx185 on a reasonable chipset at this point.

                      Panasonic is a little bit better in low light.

                    Original Yi has a sony imx206. If it's a 4k, it's the imx377.
