New processor and tools for deep learning
videantis GmbH recently announced its new v-MP6000UDX visual processing architecture and v-CNNDesigner tool. The new processor is claimed to increase deep learning algorithm performance by up to three orders of magnitude, while maintaining software compatibility with the already very powerful and successful v-MP4000HDX architecture. In automotive videantis has seen a lot of growth due to the industry’s rapid adoption of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The technology has been adopted by several leading semiconductor companies and OEMs and is already on the road in millions of vehicles. Another area of growth is in virtual and augmented reality (AR). A recent trend is to bring deep-learning-based algorithms to the embedded vision systems. Deep learning requires orders of magnitude more compute and bandwidth capabilities though, which videantis says it addresses with its new v-MP6000UDX architecture.
