Qualcomm Unveils Vision Intelligence Platform

PRNewswire: Qualcomm announces its Vision Intelligence Platform featuring the Company's first family of SoCs for IoT built in 10nm FinFET process. The QCS605 and QCS603 SoCs deliver computing for on-device camera processing and machine learning across a wide range of IoT applications. The SoCs integrate Qualcomm's most advanced ISP to date and an Artificial Intelligence (AI) Engine, along with a heterogeneous compute architecture including ARM-based multicore CPU, vector processor and GPU. The Vision Intelligence Platform also includes Qualcomm Technologies' advanced camera processing software, machine learning and computer vision SD), as well as connectivity and security technologies.

"Our goal is to make IoT devices significantly smarter as we help customers bring powerful on-device intelligence, camera processing and security. AI is already enabling cameras with object detection, tracking, classification and facial recognition, robots that avoid obstacles autonomously, and action cameras that learn and generate a video summary of your latest adventure, but this is really just the beginning," said Joseph Bousaba, VP, product management, Qualcomm. "The Qualcomm Vision Intelligence Platform is the culmination of years of advanced research and development that brings together breakthrough advancements in camera, on-device AI and heterogeneous computing. The platform is a premier launchpad for manufacturers and developers to create a new world of intelligent IoT devices."

The Vision Intelligence Platform supports up to 4K video resolution at 60 fps, or 5.7K at 30 fps, as well as multiple concurrent video streams at lower resolutions. The platform integrates a dual 14-bit Spectra 270 ISP supporting dual 16 MP sensors. In addition, the Vision Intelligence Platform includes vision processing capabilities necessary for IoT segments such as staggered HDR to prevent the "ghost" effect in HDR video, electronic image stabilization, de-warp, de-noise, chromatic aberration correction, and motion compensated temporal filters in hardware.

The QCS605 and QCS603 are sampling now.
