FREMONT, CA—Leopard Imaging Inc., a provider of HD embedded cameras and AI-based camera solutions, announced a collaboration with OMNIVISION, a global developer of semiconductor solutions, including advanced digital imaging, analog, and touch and display technology, to launch AI camera solutions for autonomous machines, supporting the OA8000 and OAX8000 camera video processors.
Leopard Imaging and OMNIVISION will work closely together to integrate these OMNIVISION processors with high-performance image sensors into various AI systems, including autonomous driving, robotics, IoT, drones, and other autonomous applications. This collaboration includes hardware and software development, image tuning, and one-stop shop customization design and manufacturing services for clients.
OMNIVISION’s OA8000 is an ultra-low-power AI-enabled video processor that supports OMNIVISION’s various high-resolution RGB and RGB-IR sensors and is capable of deep learning inferences on the edge. The OA8000’s core consists of a neural processor unit (NPU) with 1K MAC of neural network (CNN) acceleration at a high frame rate and low power consumption.
In 2021, Leopard Imaging released a series of driving monitoring system (DMS) cameras and is ready to empower more automotive clients with the OAX8000. OMNIVISION’s OAX8000, designed for the automotive industry, is a DMS processor with on-chip DDR3 SDRAM memory (1 GB). It also has an integrated NPU and ISP, which provides dedicated processing speeds of up to 1.1 trillion operations per second for eye gaze and eye tracking algorithms.
OMNIVISION is a global fabless semiconductor organization that develops advanced digital imaging, analog and touch & display solutions for multiple applications and industries, including mobile phones; security and surveillance; automotive; computing; medical; and emerging applications. Its award-winning innovative technologies enable a smoother human/machine interface in many of today’s commercial devices. Find out more at www.ovt.com.
