PRINCETON, N.J., 4 April 2010. Sarnoff Corp. in Princeton, N.J., is introducing the Acadia II system on a chip (SoC) for real-time, portable, and low-power vision sensor processing.

Developed with the support of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in Arlington, Va., Acadia II uses ARM Quad Core processors to enable one SoC to take over the processing functions that in the past required additional systems, company officials say.

Acadia II is for portable and wearable vision systems; security and surveillance platforms; manned and unmanned aerial vehicles; unmanned ground vehicles; border and perimeter protection; and vision-aided GPS-denied navigation and guidance.

"We can take an entire system and put it within the Acadia II SoC," says Mark Clifton, Sarnoff's acting president and chief executive officer. For more information contact Sarnoff online at www.sarnoff.com.
