Rockchip Licenses CEVA’s Vision Processor IP For Deep Learning

Rockchip, one of the largest fabless semiconductor companies in China, announced that it will license CEVA’s vision processor so it can enhance its chips with vision and deep learning acceleration. This January, the CEVA-XM4 processor won Linley’s “Best Processor IP” of the year 2015. As more companies start focusing on deep learning, it’s only inevitable that we’re going to see custom deep learning chips not just for data centers, but also for embedded devices. Rockchip seems to want to be one of the first to take advantage of this trend and enable use in all sorts of devices, from smartphones to smart cameras to drones to robots. Beyond deep learning, the CEVA-XM4 vision processor can be used for advanced computational photography, which could help smartphone cameras surpass their physical limitations,…
