Embedded Vision Summit West 2014

Industry Conference  
29 May 2014  
Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA  

At the Embedded Vision Summit West, you’ll have a unique opportunity to learn about embedded computer vision, which enables machines that see and understand.

Visit Cadence at our exhibit during lunch and at the reception from 5:30pm–7:30pm to chat with our tech experts and see demos of our IVP image/video DSP.

Listen to Tensilica® Founder and Cadence® Fellow Chris Rowen present from 11:30am-noon on “Taming the Beast: Performance and Energy Optimization Across Embedded Feature Detection and Tracking.”

In his talk, Chris will discuss a cross-section of advanced feature detectors, and consider the algorithm, bit precision, arithmetic primitives, and implementation optimizations that yield high-pixel processing rates, high result quality and low energy. He will also examine how these optimization methods apply to kernels used in tracking applications, including fast connected component labeling. From this, he will derive general principles on the priority and likely impact of different optimization types. Chris was a member of the founding team at MIPS. Filling a variety of roles, he became VP of microprocessor development and head of their European operations when Silicon Graphics acquired the company. In 1996, he moved back to California to be VP and GM of Synopsys's Design Re-Use Group. He left Synopsys to start Tensilica because he had an idea for a unique processor architecture that was designed, from the beginning, to be easily and automatically configurable and extensible. With the Cadence acquisition of Tensilica in 2013, Chris is now Tensilica Founder and Cadence Fellow.
