In March, InsideDSP covered the CEVA-X4 , the first member of the company's cellular DSP core family based on its CEVA-X architecture framework, and focused on smartphones and tablets that support gigabit-per-second LTE-Advanced and LTE-A Pro protocols. In June, the company introduced the
NVIDIA was an early and aggressive advocate of leveraging graphics processors for other massively parallel processing tasks (often referred to as general-purpose computing on graphics processing units, or GPGPU). The company's CUDA software toolset for GPU computing has to date secured only

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

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
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
