Signal processor image the ARM Mali-C71 is designed for automotive electronics
Company ARM has introduced the development, which opened the Mali family Camera. A processor of the image signal (ISP) ARM Mali-C71 designed for automotive electronics. According to the developer, the need for such processors is growing with increasing number of cameras that come with the car. According to analysts Strategy Analytics, in the coming years cars will have up to 10-12 cameras.

It features Mali-C71 include support for ultra-wide dynamic range (up to 24 steps of exposure), high speed and the large number of circuits, allows to detect malfunctions. The developer intends to provide a reference for access to all the functions your ISP.
Note that in Mali-C71 probably found the application of the achievements of the company Apical, ARM purchased approximately a year ago.
