Choosing the Right DSP for High-Resolution Imaging in Mobile and Wearable Applications

October 14, 2015 // By Pulin Desai, Cadence Design Systems
From smartphones to smart watches, from advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) to virtual-reality gaming consoles, drone control, and a host of security devices, the application areas that rely on high resolution imaging (1080p, 4K, and beyond) are growing. There’s great opportunity to further enhance high-resolution imaging quality to increase the effectiveness of computer vision applications, especially those for mobile and wearable devices. What’s needed is a next-generation DSP that can strike the right balance between power consumption and performance. In this paper, we will discuss criteria to consider when choosing the ideal DSP for high-resolution imaging in mobile and wearable applications.
