Tensilica Vision Q7 DSP

All Silicon IP All Verification IP


Today's applications processors are not equipped to handle the complex embedded imaging and vision digital signal processing functions in mobile handsets, drone, automotive, robotics, surveillance, and augmented reality (AR) / virtual reality (VR) markets. The Cadence® Tensilica® Vision digital signal processor (DSP) family offers a much-needed breakthrough in terms of energy efficiency and performance that enables applications never before possible in a programmable device.

The Tensilica Vision DSP family offers three Vision products.

  • The Vision Q7 DSP is the latest DSP for embedded vision and AI built on a new, faster processor architecture. The Vision Q7 DSP offers up to 1.7X higher TOPS in the same area as Vision Q6 DSP. The Vision Q7 DSP offers up to 2X performance for vision/AI applications, including floating point. The Vision Q7 DSP delivers up to 2X performance on SLAM kernels with special ISA and special SLAM hardware package.
  • The Vision Q6 DSP is the latest DSP for embedded vision and AI built on a new, faster processor architecture. The fifth-generation Vision Q6 DSP offers 1.5X greater performance than its predecessor, the Vision P6 DSP, and 1.25X better power efficiency at the Vision P6 DSP's peak performance.
  • The Vision P6 DSP, introduced in 2016, set a new standard in AI performance for a general-purpose embedded vision DSP by offering 4X the peak performance compared to the Vision P5 DSP.

A deeper, 13-stage processor pipeline and system architecture designed for use with large local memories enable the Tensilica Vision Q7 DSP to achieve 1.5GHz peak frequency. As a result, designers using the Vision Q7 DSP can develop high-performance products that meet increasing vision and AI demands and power-efficiency needs.

The Vision Q7 DSP is specifically optimized for simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM), a technique commonly used in the robotics, drone, mobile, and automotive markets to automatically construct or update a map of an unknown environment, and in the AR/VR market for inside-out tracking. The Vision Q7 DSP delivers up to 1.82 tera operations per second (TOPS), 1.7X higher TOPS compared to the Vision Q6 DSP in the same area. To address the increasing computational requirements for embedded vision and AI applications, the sixth-generation Vision Q7 DSP provides up to 2X greater AI and floating-point performance in the same area compared to its predecessor, the Vision Q6 DSP.
