In early 2015 , Synopsys' DesignWare EV5x processor core family achieved notable attention for its unique co-processor engine focused on CNNs (convolutional neural networks) for object recognition and other vision functions. The company's new EV6x processor core family includes an
Modern SoCs increasingly contain a variety of processing resources: one or more CPU cores and a GPU, often with a DSP, programmable logic, or one or multiple special-purpose co-processors for tasks such as computer vision. Properly harnessed, such heterogeneous processors often deliver impressive

Just last October , Cadence announced the then-latest generation in its computer vision processor core roadmap, the Tensilica Vision P5. Only seven months later , the Vision P5 has been superseded by the Vision P6 ( Figure 1 ). This rapid product development pace reflects the equally rapid
In late January of this year, Movidius and Google broadened their collaboration plans, which had begun with 2014's Project Tango prototype depth-sensing smartphone . As initially announced , the companies’ broader intention to "accelerate the adoption of deep learning within mobile
Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and other "deep learning" techniques are finding increasing use in a variety of detection and recognition tasks:  identifying music clips and speech phrases, for example, and finding human faces and other objects in images and videos. As a result,

ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) are rapidly being incorporated into automobiles and other vehicles, as products unveiled at January's North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Michigan made clear. Just a few short years ago, passive collision warning and active collision
As computer vision is deployed into a variety of new applications, driven by the emergence of powerful, low-cost, and energy-efficient processors, companies need to find ways to squeeze demanding vision processing algorithms into size-, weight-, power, and cost-constrained systems. Fortunately for
CEVA's DSP cores have long been a fixture in many mobile phone cellular modems, where they handle the tranceiver's digital signal processing functions, working alongside function-specific hardware accelerators. However, the physical layer coordination between the transmit and receiver
