A Picture is Worth More Than a Thousand Words.
Modern image processing continues to find new applications in commercial, industrial, military, medical, and scientific areas. While fundamental algorithmic kernels (e.g., median filters) have been widely implemented and used extensively in imaging-based solutions, today’s system requirements push the envelope on software complexity and drive an ever increasing demand for computational resources.
Engineers and scientists are being driven to create systems that accept images as input and generate outputs that consist of measurements of image features and outputs of high level descriptions of information captured by the image. Additional challenges, such as supporting multiple sensors and dynamically altering processing based on Region Of Interest (ROI) data, further complicate the job of the system designer.
Change Creates Opportunities.
Image processing and information extraction/abstraction algorithms continually evolve, driven by application-specific needs, as well as fundamental advances in understanding the phenomenology of the environment in which an imaging system is used. This fact – the need for change – fundamentally drives the requirement for an image processing solution that is easily re-configurable or re-programmed, while at the same time delivering the requisite compute capability and the lowest power consumption.
The HyperX processor directly addresses these needs and also provides the benefit of easily incorporating your IP, represented as ANSI C code. This enables you to bring a competitive, feature-differentiated solution to your customers, developed as a software defined system. Further, this allows a single hardware platform to support multiple product realizations by simply changing code.
A HyperX-based imaging system solution provides scalable performance in a cost effective, low power platform in the following ways:
- Support multiple cameras with real-time camera corrections
- Computational capacity for hyperspectral, computational imaging, and information fusion architectures
- Software re-configurability to implement evolving standards and your custom IP
- Support for High Dynamic Range (HDR) with extended integer and floating point numerics
- Realize low latency in a software defined solution
- Achieve rapid time-to-market
The world of imaging is changing and we’re providing the many-core processing solution that allows you to practically exploit the opportunities that comes with change.
