Introduction2007 (announced)
Microarchitecture
Process65 nm
TechnologyCMOS

ISAAC was an initial test microprocessor designed by Movidius (then Movidia) for accelerating game-physics. Manufactured on TSMC's 65 nm process, that chip taped out in late 2007 with silicon back in early 2008. After various discussions with phone manufacturers it was determined that a discrete game physics chip for mobile phones was too expensive, however the acceleration of vision processing was needed. The ISAAC was eventually reworked as the SABRE which included acceleration for vision processing which eventually became the Myriad 1 family.
