Release of New Image Recognition System-on-Chip with Advance Driver Assistance System Capabilities by Renesas
Renesas Electronics and Renesas Mobile have announced the of a new image recognition system-on-chip (SoC). The new SH7766 SoC features all the functionality required to implement camera based surround view system as well as display of crucial information such as lanes, signs and marking, pedestrians, vehicles, etc. The new functions on this new SoC is ideal for such applications as clear and easily distinguishable top-view virtual camera visualization using different viewpoints to display the changing surroundings all in real-time. In addition to this the new SH7766 SoC features monitoring functionalities such as advanced driver assistance system (ADAS).
Among some of the key features on this newly released SoC are; viewpoint conversion engine and dynamic range control for improved view functions, IMP-X2 next-generation image recognition engine, six video input channels, including four channels with integrated NTSC ADCs, for reduced system cost. The samples of the new SH7766 SoC will be available from November 2011 at US $50 per unit. Mass production of the new SH7766 SoC is scheduled for September of 2013.
