NXP Semiconductors N.V. Selects VeriSilicon’s Artificial Intelligence Engine Powers Multi-Sensory Experiences in NXP’s i.MX 8 Applications Processor

VeriSilicon Holdings Co., Ltd. announced that NXP Semiconductors N.V. has selected its Vivante GC7000XS/VX Vision GPUs for use withNXP's i.MX 8 applications processor.

VeriSilicon Holdings Co., Ltd. Announces Highly Scalable and Programmable Processor VIP8000

VeriSilicon Holdings Co., Ltd. announced VIP8000, a highly scalable and programmable processor for computer vision and artificial intelligence. It delivers over 3 Tera MACs per second, with power consumption more efficient than 1.5 GMAC/second/mW and the smallest silicon area in industry with 16FF process technology. The Vivante VIP8000 consists of a highly multi-threaded Parallel Processing Unit, Neural Network Unit and Universal Storage Cache Unit. VIP8000 can directly import neural networks generated by popular deep learning frameworks, such as Caffe and TensorFlow and neural networks can be integrated to other computer vision functions using the OpenVX framework. It supports all current popular neural network models (including AlexNet, GoogleNet, ResNet, VGG, Faster-RCNN, Yolo, SSD, FCN, and SegNet) and layers (including convolution and deconvolution, dilation, FC, pooling and unpooling, various normalization layers and activation functions, tensor reshaping, elementwise operation, RNN and LSTM features) and is designed to facilitate adoption of new neural networks and new types of layers. The Neural Network Unit supports both fixed-point 8-bit precision and floating-point 16-bit precision, and supports mixed-mode applications to achieve the best computational efficiency and accuracy. Vivante VIP8000’s VIP-Connect interface allows rapid customer integration of application-specific hardware acceleration units to work collaboratively with the standard Vivante VIP8000 hardware units. The processor is programmed by OpenCL or OpenVX with a unified programming model across the hardware units, including customer application-specific hardware acceleration units. All the hardware units work concurrently, with shared data in cache to significantly reduce the bandwidth.

FotoNation Limited and VeriSilicon Holdings Co., Ltd. Collaborate on Next Generation, Advanced Computer Vision and Computational Imaging Platform-IPU2.0

Tessera Holding Corporation announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, FotoNation Limited, and VeriSilicon Holdings Co. Ltd. (‘VeriSilicon’), have entered into an agreement to jointly develop a next generation image processing platform that offers best-in-class programmability, power, performance and area for computer vision (CV), computational imaging (CI) and deep learning. The market-ready IP platform, named IPU 2.0, will be available for customer license and design in the first quarter of 2017. IPU 2.0 offers a unified programing environment and pre-integrated imaging features for a wide range of applications across surveillance, automotive, mobile, IoT and more. FotoNation’s hybrid imaging approach tightly coupled with VeriSilicon’s parallel computation capabilities makes IPU 2.0 the ideal platform to deliver industry proven computer vision, computational imaging and deep learning solutions to the market. IPU 2.0 offers differentiation via open initiatives such as: OpenVX, OpenCL, OpenCV, Caffe and TensorFlow, facilitating seamless, concurrent processing between computer vision, computational imaging and deep neural networking features. The joint technology and IP development agreement combines unique technologies from both companies and brings to market an imaging platform preloaded with a wide range of industry proven real-time parallel-execution imaging features.
