MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA); (LSE: CVA), the leading licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores today announced the availability of the first imaging and vision platform based on its CEVA-MM3000™ architecture framework. CEVA-MM3101™ is a fully programmable, low power platform developed to meet the advanced image and vision processing use-cases in camera-enabled devices, including smartphones, tablets and smart TVs.
The CEVA-MM3101 platform integrates video and imaging functions that today are distributed among multiple processor engines, to address the image and video pipeline, image enhancement, embedded vision applications and image encoding functions. Instead of using fixed-function engines or running these functions on the main application processor, the CEVA-MM3101 is specifically architected to support all of these functions on a single processor, resulting in a 20X reduction in power consumption when compared to CPU-based solutions. In addition, the powerful CEVA-MM3101 enables a new level of high-performance image enhancements and embedded vision applications that are not feasible on RISC CPU based designs. For example, the CEVA-MM3101 is capable of processing video streams of 1080p, or 8 megapixel images at 12 frames per second, simultaneously with advanced performance-driven features such as video stabilization, color correction, wide dynamic range (WDR), face detection and gesture recognition.
Gideon Wertheizer, CEO of CEVA commented: "The critical role that high-performance DSP technology plays in mobile and digital home applications is being brought to the forefront by the advent of new video, image and embedded vision applications. Traditional combinations of hardwired blocks and general-purpose CPUs are no longer capable of delivering the required flexibility, power efficiency and performance for these fast-changing market trends. The CEVA-MM3101 specifically targets these highly-complex applications and offers customers the ability to deliver cost-efficient, low-power and differentiated solutions through software."
