Leopard Imaging is the first and only embedded vision solution provider in North America to provide complete sensor and Image Signal Processor (ISP) solutions utilizing the latest OA8000 Application Specific Integrated Circuits (ASICs) and OAX8000 from OMNIVISION. Leopard Imaging and OMNIVISION will work closely to integrate these powerful OMNIVISION processors with high-performance image sensors in various AI systems, including autonomous driving, robotics, IoT, drones and other autonomous applications. This collaboration includes hardware and software development, image tuning, and one-stop customization design and manufacturing services for customers.

OMNIVISION’s OA8000 is the first AI-enabled ultra-low-power video processor that supports OMNIVISION’s various high-resolution RGB and RGB-IR sensors, and is capable of deep learning inferences on the edge . The core of the OA8000 consists of a powerful neural processor unit (NPU) with 1K neural network (CNN) acceleration MAC at high frame rate and low power consumption. With Leopard Imaging’s embedded vision design and manufacturing expertise and technical support, machine vision edge computing will reach a whole new level.

In 2021, Leopard Imaging launched a series of Driving Monitoring System (DMS) cameras and is ready to empower more automotive customers with the OAX8000. OMNIVISION’s OAX8000, designed for the automotive industry, is a unique DMS processor with on-chip DDR3 SDRAM (1 GB). It is also the only dedicated DMS processor with integrated NPU and ISP, which provides dedicated processing speeds of up to 1.1 trillion operations per second for gaze and eye tracking algorithms.

“OMNIVISION has worked with Leopard Imaging for many years. The OA8000 and OAX8000 enable the introduction of the most compact and lowest power AI solutions on the market, and adding these ASICs to Leopard Imaging’s vision solutions offering was the obvious next step in the relationship,” said Andy Hanvey, Director of Automotive Marketing at OMNIVISION.

“As the first embedded vision vendor to join OMNIVISION’s powerful OA8000 and OAX8000 total solution ecosystem, we are honored to provide our best-in-class AI-based vision solutions to OMNIVISION and Leopard Imaging customers. said Bill Pu, President and Co-Founder. leopard imagery.

On June 14, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. PDT, Leopard Imaging and OMNIVISION will host a webinar for global customers on how imaging solutions using OA8000 and OAX8000 will enable standalone machines and machine-enabled vision applications. ‘IA.
