Irida Labs and Tensilica Partner for Computer Vision Applications on Tensilica's New IVP Imaging/Video DSP

(PresseBox) ( Santa Clara, Calif. USA / Patras, Greece, )
Tensilica®, Inc. and Irida Labs today announced that they are partnering to enable availability of Irida Labs' computer vision software portfolio on Tensilica's new IVP imaging/video DSP (digital signal processor). Irida Labs has joined Tensilica's Xtensions(TM) partner program and will enhance the support of new joint customers with their extensive computer vision expertise.

"We were very impressed with the embedded vision expertise at Irida Labs, and we welcome them to our partner program," stated Gary Brown, Tensilica's director of imaging/video. "We see many opportunities for their applications at companies interested in offloading the imaging functions to our efficient DSP to get 10 to 20x higher peak performance at lower power."

"We are excited to partner with Tensilica to offer our embedded vision technology and software solutions on a platform as powerful as the IVP," said Vassilis Tsagaris, CEO of Irida Labs. "Together, we are able to deliver high-performance power-efficient video analytics and computer vision solutions to the market. We also see great potential for our other software solutions. The IVP platform has proven to be ideal for realizing a cost-effective implementation."

IVP is an imaging and video dataplane processor (DPU) that is ideal for the complex image, video and gesture recognition signal processing functions in mobile handsets, tablets, digital televisions (DTV), automotive, video games and computer vision. The IVP DSP has a unique instruction set tuned for imaging and video pixel processing that gives it an instruction throughput of over 16x the number of 16-bit pixel operations compared to that of the typical host CPU with single-issue vector instructions. In addition to its raw instruction throughput advantage to host CPUs, the imaging specific compound instructions supported by IVP give it a higher peak performance of 10 to 20x and much higher energy efficiency. IVP's rich instruction set has more than 300 imaging, video and vision-oriented vector operations, each of which applies to 32 or more 16-bit pixels per cycle.
