InsideDSP — In-depth analysis and opinion
For humans, it goes without saying that vision is extremely valuable. When you stop to think about it, it’s remarkable what a diverse set of capabilities is enabled by human vision – from reading facial expressions, to navigating complex three-dimensional spaces (whether by foot,
Programmable logic IP cores, intended for integration within a broader-function ASIC, are a long-discussed and –explored product option that has yet to achieve more than niche adoption. Small FPGA IP players such as Flex Logic Technologies and Menta linger in the market, but picking such
Look back over the history of processors, and you'll see many examples of tasks initially restricted to running on high-end processors that, once they became popular and standardized, eventually attracted specialized co-processor or processor support ( Figure 1 ). Consider, for example, video
Processor vendors and system designers share a common concern: how to make sure their products meet customer needs. For processor vendors, a key challenge is to design architectures with enough performance to meet the demands of current and anticipated applications while staying within acceptable

Hard on the heels of the public release of CEVA's second-generation convolutional neural network toolset, CDNN2 , the company is putting the final touches on its fifth-generation processor core, the CEVA-XM6 , designed to run software generated by that toolset. Liran Bar, the company's
A variety of visible light- and infrared-based technologies are currently available for determining objects' locations in 3D space, as well as ascertaining their surface shapes and movements. However, these approaches sometimes come with privacy concerns; they also are unable to see inside
The world of high tech abounds with cautionary tales of decisions based on inadequate information. With 20/20 hindsight, it's easy to see where wrong decisions were made, but when you're in the thick of it, you often fail to see the forest for the trees. Careful technology decision-makers
Based on the pace of investment and acquisitions, and the level of buzz (some would say "hype") surrounding augmented reality and virtual reality, it is obvious that these technologies are hot. With good reason, I think. Augmented and virtual reality have long held enormous
If you’ve read recent editions of this column, you know that I believe that embedded vision – enabling devices to understand the world visually – will be a game-changer for many industries. For humans, vision enables many diverse capabilities: reading your spouse’s
