Cadence: Tensilica 5th Generation DSP: Mix of Vision and AI


Apr. 17, 2018 – Cadence has launched the new Tensilica Vision Q6 DSP IP, delivering 1.5x more performance than the former Vision P6 DSP IP and 1.25X better power efficiency. According with Cadence, the mobile industry is moving from traditional feature-based embedded vision to AI-based algorithm, even if all use cases still have mix of vision and AI operations. The result is need for both vision and AI processing in the camera pipeline, translating into the implementation of both Vision Q6 DSP and C5 DSP to solve the complete camera processing pipeline.

Implemented in the Huawei Mate 10, Cadence Vision DSP enables advanced imaging applications like HDR video, image stabilization or hybrid zoom with 2 scene facing cameras. Compared to CPU or GPU, Vision P6 and now Q6 helps meeting high resolution video capture, thanks to their high-performance capability and battery life requirements, thanks to much better energy efficiency. The Vision P6 IP core also serves as the processing unit for AI processing in the MediaTek P60, that MediaTek call the Mobile APU.

If you look at the way MediaTek communicates about their P60, AI capability is as much highlighted as the power of the four ARM Cortex A-73 CPU as "users can enjoy AI-infused experiences in apps with deep-learning facial detection (DL-FD), real-time beautification, novel, real-time overlays, object and scene identification, AR/MR acceleration, enhancements to photography or real-time video previews and much more."
