Toshiba Electronics Europe (TEE) is offering an expanded line-up of Visconti image recognition processors with the launch of the Visconti3 series. The first device in this new series, the TMPV7528XBG, is enhanced by the integration of additional processor cores. Sample shipments begin in April.
The Visconti series of image recognition processors was developed to support the creation of camera-based vision systems for automotive applications. The processors are able to recognize traffic lanes, vehicles, pedestrians, traffic signs and more. Both the Visconti 2 and 3 series devices incorporate image processing accelerators that detect pedestrians with high level detection ratio in real time.
In addition to these capabilities, the Visconti3 lowers the software-development hurdle for customers by integrating an ARM 32-bit RISC Cortex-A9 MPCore (2 cores) dedicated to supporting applications interfacing with the image recognition processor.
The company targets annual sales of 2 million Visconti image recognition processors in fiscal 2015.
