About Ocean12

Based on the innovative FDSOI technology, OCEAN12 will develop new processors and applications designs that leverage Fully Depleted Silicon On Insulator (FD-SOI) technology to offer the industry’s lowest power consuming processor and components, especially for following applications.


Contribution to the technological progress and unseen on-board embedded computing power. Demonstration of low-power, high-performance image-/video processing platform for e.g. object recognition in an UAV as explained in the technical concept.


It is an indisputable fact that for higher levels of automated driving the computing power has to further rise by decades while further reducing the power consumption. Today’s solution to encounter this challenge is – e.g. in case of sensors – to reduce or even turn off the functionality of sensor-sets, if the car is not actively used (e.g. parking garage).

Wake-up system and sensors

New automotive grade sensor will be developed, optimized for low power applications including wake-up features. With respect to power consumption, this sensor is expected to be capable of the performance usually only required in consumable and wearable applications.
