Synopsys announces collaboration with Morpho
Synopsys announced a collaboration with Morpho to optimize Morpho's computational photography software for Synopsys' DesignWare EV6x Vision Processors. Morpho's Scene Classifier image classification technology uses deep learning algorithms to analyze visual input and automatically apply tags for classification, searchability and organization. Morpho is optimizing their software to take advantage of the EV6x Vision Processors' scalable hardware architecture, which includes up to four 512-bit vector DSPs and a fully programmable convolutional neural network, or CNN, engine. The combined hardware-software solution enables designers to accelerate image classification and automated tagging tasks in their mobile and surveillance systems-on-chips, or SoCs, while consuming significantly less power and memory resources than alternative implementations.
