Dedicated driver monitoring system ASIC comes with integrated AI neural processing unit

January 4, 2021  Stephen Law

OMNIVISION TECHNOLOGIES OAX8000 AI-enabled, automotive application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) is optimized for entry-level, stand-alone driver monitoring systems (DMS). Device uses a stacked-die architecture to provide the industry’s only DMS processor with on-chip DDR3 SDRAM memory (1GB). This is also the only dedicated DMS processor to integrate a neural processing unit (NPU) and image signal processor (ISP), which provides dedicated processing speeds up to 1.1 trillion operations per second for eye gaze and eye tracking algorithms. Device delivers fast processing speeds with 1K MAC of convolutional neural network (CNN) acceleration, along with integrated SDRAM, enabling low power consumption. Image sensor consumes 1 watt in typical conditions, combined. Further optimizing DMS systems, this integration also reduces the board area for the engine control unit (ECU).
