Get Information About Processor Options and Selection at the Embedded Vision Summit

Delivering the processing performance required by computer vision applications (typically tens of billions of operations per second) with cost and power consumption appropriate for mass-market products is a tough challenge. Just in the past few months, several new vision-specific co-processors, offered as licensable cores for incorporation into chips, have been announced, joining multiple previously introduced vision cores and ICs. In addition, many vision system developers use other types of parallel co-processors, such as GPUs, DSPs and FPGAs.
