    A 0.79mm2 29mW real-time face detection core is fabricated in a 0.13μm CMOS technology. It consists of 75kgate logic, 58kbit SRAM, and the ARM AMBA bus interface. Comprehensive optimization in both algorithm and hardware design improves performance and reduces area and power dissipation. The core can detect 8 faces per frame at 30fps. Face detection accuracy is 92%.
