ARM ISP technology has been a time last year, and the acquisition of ISP, have expertise in computer vision (Apical and HUAWEI Hass cooperation is very close), now finally bear the first fruit, which is the ARM Mali Camera series of the first product.
ARM believes that unmanned applications are image processing and put forward higher requirements, such as more advanced mirrors, driver fatigue detection, pedestrian protection system, the future of the high-end car may be integrated up to 12 cameras, and with the number of car camera added, intelligent sensor fusion technology, the function of ISP is is integrated into the SoC processor.
Mali-C71 supports up to 24 files (24 stops) over the wide dynamic range (UWDR), the details can even exceed the scope of the human eye recognition, and the best SLR camera is only 15.
Mali-C71 can also be used for multiple exposure processing, the acquisition of data denoising and synthesis, so as to get a super wide dynamic range of images, sent to the display device or computer vision engine.
Security, Mali-C71 can meet ISO26262, ASIL D, IEC 61508, SIL3 and other functional security standards, and will provide a security package for these standards.
In addition,It has more than 300 special fault detection circuit, can provide low delay and advanced error detection.
ARM will also provide all the reference software used to control ISP, sensors, automatic white balance, automatic exposure, and plans to develop a complete, ASIL compliant automotive software.
