CEVA Introduces Digital Video Stabilizer Software Module for CEVA-MM3000 Imaging & Vision Platforms Targeting Next Generation Smartphones and Mobile Devices

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., – August 5, 2013 – CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the leading licensor of silicon intellectual property (SIP) platform solutions and DSP cores, today announced the availability of its digital video stabilizer (DVS) software module for theCEVA-MM3000 imaging and vision platforms, bringing advanced imaging capabilities to next generation smartphones and mobile devices. The DVS module is fully optimized to run in real-time using minimal processing workloads and very low memory bandwidth on the CEVA-MM3000 platforms. For example, in a 28nm process, the CEVA-MM3101 consumes less than 35mW power while running DVS on a 1080p30 fps video stream in real-time. Addressing higher resolution requirements, the DVS module scales up to 4K Ultra-HD video streams on a single CEVA-MM3101 platform.

CEVA’s DVS software module reduces the shakiness resulting from motion typically experienced when using the video and imaging functions in handheld devices such as smartphones and cameras. Features supported include rolling shutter (“Jello Effect”) and multiple axis correction, which reduce shakiness and smooth motion when panning, zooming and rotating, in any light conditions. The DVS module was implemented utilizing CEVA’s new Application Developer Kit (ADK), which was also announced today in a separate press release. The ADK serves to substantially simplify the overall software development experience, shortening the product design cycle and providing significant memory bandwidth and power consumption savings for imaging and vision applications.

Eran Briman, vice president of marketing at CEVA, commented: “Mobile device manufacturers are constantly on the lookout for differentiating features, most of which are aimed at enabling unique computational photography and vision applications. But even more important is the need to quickly implement such new features to meet product life cycles shorter than six months. Our DVS software module clearly illustrates the added value that the programmable CEVA-MM3000 family of imaging and vision platforms brings to OEMs, who can leverage the inherently low power consumption of DSPs to integrate advanced computational photography capabilities, in a timely and cost-efficient manner. Furthermore, our DVS module can be easily coupled with additional imaging software modules on the fully programmable CEVA-MM3000 platform such as Super-Resolution, Color Enhancement and High Dynamic Range.”

Insights on StarRC Standalone Netlist Reducer

Sponsored by Synopsys

With the ever-growing size of extracted netlists, parasitic optimization is key to achieve practical simulation run times. Key trade-off for any netlist reducer is accuracy vs netlist size. StarRC Standalone Netlist reducer provides the flexibility to optimize your netlist on a per net basis. The user has total control of trading accuracy of some nets versus netlist optimization - yet another feature from StarRC to provide flexibility to the designer.
