The leading global imaging expert FRAMOS® adds Rhonda Software to its trusted supplier and partner network to complete the embedded vision and module offering.
FRAMOS completes its broad imaging portfolio from single sensors to complete embedded vision systems by worldwide partnering with Rhonda Software, one of the primary product development companies for Ambarella based ISPs, SoCs and SoMs, to support customers with facilitated and accelerated platform options to develop cutting-edge vision solutions.
Rhonda Software is a software and hardware design house with a focus on Embedded solutions in the areas of Imaging, Multimedia and Connectivity. Established in 1995, the Chicago headquartered company owns decades of engineering experience and a history of hundreds of camera products. The Ambarella design partner employs 100+ engineers and experts in still and video processing, connected devices, computer vision, cloud services and mobile applications. Offering numerous features out-of-the-box, like UVC streaming, Bluetooth and BLE connectivity, various camera control options, dual imager support, and a very small footprint, the Rhonda solutions that includes their camera SDK built on top of the low-level Ambarella system support package (SSP) allows customers to speed up development cycles of complex custom cameras and embedded systems.
