Axis ARTPEC-7 Chip Release Examined

By: Ethan Ace, Published on Apr 08, 2019

For years, Axis essentially de-promoted their own chips.

Now, they are reversing course. Axis has announced ARTPEC-7, their latest chip, which Axis claims "brings powerful capabilities to cameras."

Inside this note, we examine the new chip, what performance claims they are making and how it compares to general chip providers like Huawei Hisilicon, Intel, Qualcomm, Ambarella, and to surveillance specific ones such as Hanwha, Dahua and Hikvision.
