DANNIE implemented a segmentation algorithm on a low-cost SOC.

R&D company DANNIE LT announced a successful implementation of a segmentation algorithm on Ingenic T40. T40 is a specialized for computer vision SOC with hardware NN acceleration.

Segmentation algorithm determinates exact object boundaries on an image frame, compared to boundary box algorithm.

This allows to solve more complex business tasks like a type of road’s surface detection on cost effective and energy efficient (<1W) T40 platform, that has been never done before.

Working with the top level engineering team from Ingenic was a great experience and honor for us. I am looking forward to new achievements we can do together“, ― Viktor Vikulov, head of CV department in Dannie LT.

The whole project took about 3 month and was not possible without tight collaboration with Ingenic R&D team. Memory limitations, hardware acceleration specifics and completely new functionality for NPU sdk – great challenges we had to overcome together.

It was high risk-high reward R&D project. But now, we can provide our customers with highly competitive solutions for cost sensitive and energy efficient AI products», ― Alex head Dannie Lt R&D department.

For model Dannie Ml engineers used customized resnet and u-net with Int8 quantization. There are still some work needs to be done in field of performance, but even current result allows us to implement ADAS features on personal electric vehicles for our customer.

Demo: Achronix Speedster7t 2D NoC vs. Traditional FPGA Routing

Sponsored by Achronix

This demonstration compares an FPGA design utilizing Achronix Speedster7t 2D Network on Chip (NoC) for routing signals with the FPGA device, versus using traditional FPGA routing. The 2D NoC provides a 40% reduction in logic resources required with 40% less compile time needed versus using traditional FPGA routing. Speedster7t FPGAs are optimized for high-bandwidth workloads and eliminate the performance bottlenecks associated with traditional FPGAs.

Software and Automotive Safety

Sponsored by Siemens Digital Industries Software

In the realm of automotive designs, safety must reign above all else. But the question remains: How can we innovate within the constraints of today’s safety standards? In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rob Bates from Siemens about the role ISO 26262 plays when it comes to COTS and open source software, what certified software components are all about, and how heterogeneous multiprocessing can be helpful in your next automotive design.
