Shanghai, China – Amou China today released a new “Linglong” multimedia product line, the first of which is the “Linglong” i3/i5 ISP processor, which was independently developed by Amou’s local team in China. The indicators have reached the industry-leading level, with high image quality, low latency, strong configurability, and high expansion compatibility. This ISP processor can be widely used in video and image processing in the fields of security monitoring, AIoT and smart cars, to meet the data processing needs of different scenarios.
Liu Shu, executive vice president of product development at Arm China, said: “In recent years, with the development of intelligence and networking, video image processing has been widely used in many fields such as smart security, AIoT, and smart cars. Benefiting from these applications in China With the rapid development of China’s ISP market, China’s ISP market is characterized by rapid growth and diverse needs. For this reason, Arm China established a local team and independently developed the industry-leading ‘Linglong’ i3/i5 ISP processor for more than 2 years. During the research and development process, we have always focused on the needs of Chinese customers and continued to promote the evolution and iteration of the solution, which not only highlights Arm China’s first-class R&D strength and technical reserves in the ISP field, but also further enhances Arm China’s rapid response and comprehensive support to local customers. technical support capabilities.”
“Linglong” ISP processors are divided into several series of products according to the data processing requirements of different scenarios. The i3 series released today is mainly aimed at low-power and lightweight application scenarios, supporting 2K video processing and single-channel video signal access processing; the i5 series is mainly for mid-to-high-end market applications, supporting 4K video and multi-channel video signal access processing. In the future, “Linglong” ISP processors will also launch more differentiated product series to fully cover the market.
