High Performance Sensor Fusion on a Vector DSP
The growing use of a variety of sensors in edge devices – from wearables to virtual assistants to automotive radar/lidar/vision – requires SoCs to have an optimal balance of DSP & AI/ML performance and low power & area. In addition, SoC developers must be able to easily scale their hardware architectures to handle a varying number of data streams while preserving their software investments. We will discuss the heterogeneous processing requirements of sensor fusion applications, driving the need for versatile and scalable processor IP to combine classical DSP, linear algebra, computer vision, and AI/ML workloads into a single solution. Featuring the ARC VPX Vector DSP family, we will explain key functions that can be optimized to handle a spectrum of sensor fusion workloads, while adhering to a single programming environment.
Pieter van der Wolf is a Principal Product Architect at Synopsys. He received his MSc and PhD degrees in Electrical Engineering from Delft University of Technology. He was an Associate Professor at Delft University of Technology before joining Philips Research in 1996. In 2006 he joined NXP Semiconductors when it was spun out of Philips Electronics. In 2009 he joined VirageLogic, which was subsequently acquired by Synopsys. He has worked on a broad range of topics including (multi-)processor architectures and system design methodologies, with a focus on DSP applications.
