SAN FRANCISCO--Cadence IP Group CTO Chris Rowen has been talking up vision processing for some time now, and he came to the 52nd Design Automation Conference to offer some additional perspective.
In a presentation as part of the conference's IP track, Rowen said balancing the need for compute power in vision applications and keeping power under control are key system-design challenges today.
"Vision has clearly become very important because it is one of the major ways in which electronic systems interact with people and in the real world," Rowen said. "The level of compute in vision processing is truly extraordinary. It falls into that category of big compute. It's going to be big compute in the cloud and it's going to be big compute in devices."
