Novatek to Improve Vision Capabilities of its Camera Processors

PRNewswire: CEVA announces that Novatek, Taiwan's 2nd largest fabless IC design house, has licensed and deployed the CEVA-XM4 intelligent vision DSP for its next-generation vision-enabled SoCs targeting a range of end markets requiring advanced visual intelligence capabilities. Novatek's current camera SoC lineup for car DVR and surveillance systems integrates the 3rd generation CEVA-MM3101 imaging & vision DSP and is shipping in volume.

By integrating CEVA-XM4 as a dedicated vision processor in their next-generation SoC designs, Novatek deploys vision algorithms to enable advanced applications such as surveillance systems with face detection and authentication, drone anti-collision systems and ADAS. These types of applications are built utilizing CEVA's Deep Neural Network (CDNN2), a proprietary framework that enables deep learning tasks to run on the CEVA-XM4 and is said to outperform any GPU or CPU-based system in terms of speed, power consumption and memory bandwidth requirements.
