DesignWare EV6x Embedded Vision Processors

 

The Most Integrated Vision Processor Solution Available

The DesignWare® EV61, EV62 and EV64 embedded vision processors offer 100x higher performance that the EV5x processors and support multiple camera input with resolutions up to 4Kp. The processors are fully programmable and configurable and combine the flexibility of software solutions with the high performance and low power consumption of dedicated hardware. The EV6x family features the most integrated vision processor solution available, combining a high-performance 32-bit scalar core with a 512-bit vector DSP, an optimized convolution neural network (CNN) engine, and support for user-defined APEX hardware accelerators. The processors are highly scalable and configurable enabling users to tailor them to their specific application requirements to maximize performance while minimizing power and area. The optional CNN engine is programmable and can run all fixed point CNN graphs. The engine enables fast and accurate object detection, classification and scene segmentation. The EV61 features a single vision CPU (32-bit scalar RISC with a 512-bit vector DSP), the EV62 features a dual-core vision CPU and the EV64 has a quad-core vision CPU. All of the cores can be configured with the optional CNN engine.

To speed application software development, the EV6x processor family is supported by a comprehensive software programming environment based on embedded vision standards including OpenCV, OpenCL™ C and OpenVX™, as well as Synopsys’ ARC MetaWare Development Toolkit.
