In May 2014 , Synopsys expanded its ARC EM licensable processor core product line, which BDTI described as historically being "vanilla" Harvard architecture CPUs with no DSP-optimized features, via the addition of the digital signal processing pipeline-equipped EM5D and EM7D

Qualcomm has been evolving its in-house DSP core for many years. Originally developed for use in Qualcomm’s cellular modems, more recently it has also found use as an application co-processor, offloading multimedia tasks from the CPU in smart phones and tablets. Earlier InsideDSP articles
Back in early 2013, the smartphone market was red hot, as was demand for Amazon's Kindle and other e-book readers. And the tablet market, although comparatively nascent, was in a rapid growth phase, as was interest in alternative computer platforms such as Google's Chrome O/S-based
Sensory's TrulyHandsFree software, which InsideDSP last covered at its v3 introduction in early 2013 , precedes limited-vocabulary speech recognition with voice detection involving a specific key word or phrase. And with latest version 4.0 , Sensory adopts convolutional (i.e. "deep
"General-purpose GPU" (or "GPGPU") refers to the use of graphics processors for a variety of non-graphics tasks, and is a frequently discussed topic here at InsideDSP . GPUs are massively parallel processors, originally designed to only handle vertex and pixel operations.

Lately, neural network algorithms have been gaining prominence in computer vision and other fields where there's a need to extract insights based on ambiguous data. As I wrote last year , classical computer vision algorithms typically attempt to identify objects by first detecting small
The SHARC DSP family has long been a design staple of mid-range and high-end audio, industrial and other digital signal-processing intensive applications. With its two new series of products , Analog Devices delivers dual-core SHARC to the market for the first time. And the ADSP-SC58x devices also
Practical computer vision (i.e. "embedded vision") is rapidly becoming a mainstream reality . Numerous processor chip and core suppliers have responded to increasing market demand with a variety of processor options. One of the first companies to target the vision processor space,
The "Internet of Things" (IoT), one of the hottest topics in technology today, is widely anticipated to be a notable driver of both semiconductor and software demand in coming years. Key to an understanding of the IoT opportunity, as a recent article published on the Embedded Vision

The computer vision market is in a period of dramatic expansion. Market forecasts consolidated by Synopsys attest to the burgeoning adoption of practical computer vision (i.e. "embedded vision") technology ( Figure 1 ) in a range of high-volume products. This growth is fueled by the
