In January 2013 , InsideDSP covered the CEVA-MM3101, the company's first DSP core targeted not only at still and video image encoding and decoding tasks (akin to the prior-generation MM2000 and MM3000) but also at a variety of image and vision processing tasks. At that time, the company
Vision science studies suggest that the eye is able to discern more than 11 bits of dynamic range for each of the three primary colors – red, green and blue – that typically comprise a given scene. The optical nerve connecting each eye to the brain, on the other hand, is only able to

In a recent interview in EE Times , BDTI co-founder and president Jeff Bier commented: Multi-core CPUs are very powerful and programmable, but not very energy-efficient. So if you have a battery-powered device that is going to be doing a lot of vision processing, you may be motivated

The article, " QDSP6 V4: Qualcomm Gives Customers and Developers Programming Access to its DSP Core ," which appeared in the June 2012 edition of InsideDSP , showcased Qualcomm’s decision to open up access to its DSP core via a software development kit. This decision corresponded
In my October column , I explored the phenomenon of mobile application processors (the brains of smartphones and tablets) competing against more traditional types of embedded processors for use in embedded systems. But after writing that column, something happened that made me realize that mobile

Cost- and power consumption-sensitive digital signal processing applications tend to leverage fixed point processors, for a common fundamental reason: fixed-point processor cores are substantially less complex than their floating-point counterparts, leading to reductions in transistor count and

"There's been at least one DSP core in every chip that Qualcomm's ever made." Qualcomm senior director of product management Rick Maule used this statement as his lead-in to an explanation of the latest-generation QDSP6 architecture, specifically where it fits in the company
It's a safe bet that when a chip company devotes precious development time and manpower, not to mention silicon area, to a specialized function, that company feels confident that it's going to get a notably positive return on its investment. Take Intel, for example, which embeds a video
As last summer's formation of the Embedded Vision Alliance suggests, the transition from computer-based intelligent image processing to more compact, cost-effective and energy-efficient embedded vision products is already well underway. CEVA, a company to date best known for its digital

A new industry association, the Embedded Vision Alliance, is being formed to help embedded system designers harness computer vision in their products. BDTI, which has initiated the partnership, believes that computer vision—extracting meaning from images and video—is poised to
