Quick-Start OpenCV Kit includes pre-installed Ubuntu Linux, an Eclipse integrated development environment, GNU GCC tools and OpenCV, which is ready to run within a single virtual machine image that can be executed using the free VMware Player for PCs or using VMware Fusion for Macs.
Jeff Bier, noted DSP technology analyst and general manager of BDTI
, welcomed the four charter members, saying, "BDTI
is pleased to have these industry-leading vendors as charter members of the BDTI
Benchmark Partner Program.
Benes: They will come from a variety of backgrounds, hopefully many with training and updated knowledge about relevant laws and governance practices provided by institutions such as the BDTI
mimoOn GmbH, an LTE software licensing company, said yesterday that it has formed a partnership with BDTI
, an independent technology analysis firm.
The Embedded Vision Alliance was launched in May of 2011, and now has 19 sponsoring member companies: AMD, Analog Devices, Apical, Avnet Electronics Marketing, BDTI
, CEVA, Cognimem, CogniVue, Freescale, IMS Research, Intel, MathWorks, Maxim Integrated Products, NVIDIA, National Instruments, Omek Interactive, Texas Instruments, Tokyo Electron Device, and Xilinx.
and mimoOn are collaborating to create a benchmark suite that will enable rapid and fair comparisons of processing platforms for LTE base stations and terminals.
The score is distilled from a processor's results on 12 key DSP algorithm kernels comprising the BDTI
DSP Kernel Benchmarks[TM].
Recognizes Industry-Leading Performance of Freescale's Flagship MSC8156 DSP Based on the Latest StarCore([R]) Technology
The BDTIsimMark2000[TM] provides a summary measure of signal processing speed distilled from the BDTI
DSP Kernel Benchmarks, which are among the most widely used digital signal processing benchmarks in the world.
An FPGA-based implementation of a complex video motion analysis algorithm (the BDTI
Optical Flow[TM] application) using PICO C synthesis tools outperformed a traditional DSP processor implementation on throughput by a factor over 40x achieving a processing rate of 204 frames per second and provided a 30X price/performance advantage over DSPs.
