LG Electronics chooses CEVA Imaging, Vision DSP for mobile devices

Signal processing licensor CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA) said that LG Electronics has licensed the CEVA imaging and vision DSP for its mobile device product lines.

CEVA´s imaging and vision DSPs address the extreme processing requirements of the most sophisticated computational photography and computer vision applications such as video analytics, augmented reality and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).

By offloading these performance-intensive tasks from the CPUs and GPUs, the highly-efficient DSP dramatically reduces the power consumption of the overall system, while providing complete flexibility. The platform includes a vector processor developed specifically to deal with the complexities of such applications and an extensive Application Development Kit (ADK) to enable an easy development environment.

The CEVA ADK includes an Android Multimedia Framework (AMF) that streamlines software development and integration effort, a set of advanced software development tools and a range of software products and libraries optimized for the DSP. For embedded systems targeting deep learning, the CEVA Deep Neural Network (CDNN) real-time neural network software framework streamlines machine learning deployment at a fraction of the power consumption of the leading GPU-based systems.

CEVA partners with semiconductor companies and OEMs worldwide to create power-efficient, intelligent and connected devices for a range of end markets, including mobile, consumer, automotive, industrial and IoT.
