OMNIVISION, together with Seeing Machines announce the automotive industry’s first dedicated driver monitoring system (DMS) and occupant monitoring system (OMS) application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) that combines an image signal processor (ISP) and is powered by Seeing Machines’ Occula Neural Processing Unit (NPU).
OMNIVISION announced the world’s first dedicated DMS ASIC with an integrated AI NPU, ISP, and DDR3 memory in January 2021 (OAX8000). The new OAX4600 integrates the Occula NPU. It will feature a higher level of processing and performance, comply with ASIL B advanced safety standards, and is based on a much deeper level of partnership with ecosystem vendors. It will include an optimal HW RGB-IR ISP, cybersecurity, and deliver the most power-efficient solution.
Availability of the combined ASIC IP solution is expected in 2H 2022.
