Texas Instruments announced their MS320C6748 DSP development kit. The TI C6748 DSP kit is ideal for real-time analytics applications such as fingerprint recognition and face detection. The C6748 DSP development kit is also ideal for other digital signal processing applications, such as audio and communications. The TI C6748 DSP development kit is available for $195. The C6748 SYS/BIOS Software Development Kit (SDK) is pre-loaded with the C6748 StarterWare software package.
Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) announced the DMVA1 SoC. With DMVA1, engineers can deploy smart analytics functions such as people counting, trip zone, intelligent motion detection, camera tamper detection and streaming metadata. By coupling the vision co-processor with smart analytics all on a single chip, designers can reduce the cost of video analytics-enabled IP cameras by an order of magnitude. The DMVA1 video security camera SoC will begin sampling in the second quarter to early adopter video security customers.
