Low-cost, High-resolution IP Camera Runs Linux

“US embedded hardware OEM KwikByte demonstrated a complete
embedded high-resolution camera running Linux and applications on a
power-conscious system. The system is designed for surveillance and
machine vision applications.

“The board used for the demonstration, KwikByte’s CAM60, is
built on the company’s popular general-purpose KB9260 board. The
processor used is Atmel’s ARM926-based AT91SAM9260. The camera’s
small footprint reduces system size while the low power consumption
allows the board to be powered by auxiliary DC supply or Power over
Ethernet – PoE also known as IEEE 802.3af. By using PoE, a single
Ethernet connection to the board can provide power as well as
network connectivity. For surveillance applications, this greatly
simplifies installation and reduces cost by eliminating the need
for dedicated power supply circuits.”
