PRNewswire: Cadence announces the Tensilica Vision P6 DSP extending the Tensilica product portfolio into the fast-growing vision/deep learning applications areas. New instructions, increased math throughput and other enhancements set a new standard in imaging and computer vision benchmarks, increasing performance by up to 4X compared to the Tensilica Vision P5 DSP.
"Cadence is investing heavily on advanced vision and deep learning," said Chris Rowen, CTO for the IP Group at Cadence. "We are devoting intense efforts to discovering improved structures and training for neural networks, providing rich software environments for fast application development and offering breakthrough vision DSP architectures for embedded vision and learning deployment. The Tensilica Vision P6 design is the direct result of this investment and significantly raises the bar in both vision efficiency and scalability."
"Devices that are more aware of the world around them are more capable, more autonomous, safer and easier to use," said Jeff Bier, founder of the Embedded Vision Alliance. "By enabling widespread deployment of deep learning and computer vision, processors like the Tensilica Vision P6 DSP are making the promise of more intelligent devices a reality."
