Sarnoff Launches Acadia® II Vision Processor

Breakthrough, System-on-a-Chip (SoC) for Next-Generation Embedded Systems

PRINCETON, N.J. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — April 6, 2010 — Sarnoff Corporation today launched Acadia® II, the world’s most powerful system-on-a-chip (SoC) with real-time, portable, and low power consumption for vision processing and system control.

Acadia II performs real-time contrast enhancement, stabilization, multi-sensor fusion, and tracking. Equipped with an integrated ARM11™ MPCore™, Acadia II functions as a CPU for the entire system by providing users the ability to port customized processing and system interfaces. With its small form factor and low power, Acadia II is ideal for integration into portable and wearable vision systems; security and surveillance platforms; manned and unmanned aerial and ground vehicles; border and perimeter protection; and vision-aided GPS-denied navigation.

“Acadia II is the breakthrough integrated vision processing solution the industry has been waiting for,” said Mark Clifton, Sarnoff’s Acting President and Chief Executive Officer. “With much more processing power and less energy consumption in a fraction of the size, we can now take an entire system and put it within the Acadia II SoC. Acadia II will usher in a whole new generation of highly advanced end products at a fraction of the size, weight, and power of comparable systems.”

Acadia II’s next generation capabilities include:

  • Three channel, pattern-selective adaptive fusion for night vision
  • Real-time, low latency processing including contrast enhancement
  • Full color, full resolution processing up to 720P and 1080i
  • Robust stabilization and object/target tracking applications
  • 1280x1024 RGB video output with on-screen display processor
  • Four ARM®11 300MHz floating-point processors

For more information and to view a live demo of Acadia II, visit Sarnoff at booth number 617 at the SPIE Defense, Security, and Sensing show, April 6 – 8, or on the web at: http://www.sarnoff.com/acadia2.
