Acadia II SoC Development Platform

Sarnoff announced the Acadia II Development Platform (A2-DP-1). The A2-DP-1 is an engineering platform for evaluating and integrating the capability of the Acadia II SoC, along with user developed algorithms and system level processing. The Development kit offers an integrated platform combining the Acadia II SoC, including the embedded four-processor ARM11 MPCore, with a high performance Xilinx Virtex-5 FPGA for expandability. The Acadia II Development Platform is now available, with delivery in four (4) weeks or less.

The Acadia II Development Platform features the Acadia II SoC, Mezzanine Card, and Development board. The A2-DP-1 development platform delivers access to the Acadia II video processing capabilities such as multi-band fusion, electronic stabilization, tracking and targeting, and real-time mosaics. While providing the necessary hardware and software to evaluate and implement the advanced features of the Acadia II, it also incorporates customer developed proprietary algorithms. The combination enables designers to incorporate complete system processing within the SoC, for platforms such as handheld and rifle mounted sights, EO/IR cameras, UAV/UGV’s, Military Vehicle SA, fire control systems, border/perimeter security, and ruggedized displays. The platform also supports industry-standard peripherals, connectors, and interfaces.
