BYD Semiconductor, a subsidiary of BYD preparing for an IPO, announced on October 14 that he created a smart surveillance camera which can be used in multiple scenarios and has a wide range of functions.
The integration of AI has led to the rise of smart home appliances and a new development path in the traditional security market which tends to be saturated. As the scale of home CCTV systems expands, the demand for security products and services in various industries has increased.
According IRN China, the market size of China’s smart surveillance camera industry reached 316.7 billion yuan ($44 billion), a year-on-year increase of 13.5%. Falling costs have allowed video surveillance products to be deployed in a wide range of situations, from communities to security, visual management to industrial manufacturing.
BYD Semiconductor, established in 2004, has systematically upgraded traditional smart surveillance cameras with its self-developed technology. Q1 smart surveillance camera adopts self-developed image sensor which achieves high-quality real-time image signals with resolution up to 1920×1080.
Q1 smart camera can be used in different kinds of residential areas, small and medium-sized stores, small and medium-sized business offices, etc. The highly concentrated processor can reduce power consumption, ensure image quality, and effectively reduce network bandwidth usage. A built-in microphone and speaker support audio and video intercom functions, call and monitoring functions, and provide a better recording storage method.
After BYD acquired Ningbo Zhongwei Semiconductor’s manufacturing plant in 2008, it began to expand the semiconductor business. At present, BYD Semiconductor has mastered automotive-grade self-controlling IGBT modules, and its products have reached mass production, although its products are still only used in BYD’s vehicles so far. After passing the Shenzhen Stock Exchange listing exam in April this year, the company’s listing process was suspended at the end of September due to the expiration of the submitted documents.

The CMOS image sensor launched by BYD Semiconductor can be used in mobile phones, security monitoring products and automobiles. Meanwhile, the company’s automotive-grade 1080P and 960P BSI image sensors have the advantages of low noise, high sensitivity, high image quality and high reliability.
