Smart imaging and computer vision for camera-enabled applications

From mobile devices to autonomous drones, and from surveillance equipment to automotive safety systems, intelligent image processing and computer vision are fundamental challenges for today’s system designers.

And demand for energy-efficient, compact embedded imaging solutions is set to soar as low-cost, low-power computational photography and computer vision are fundamental to the success of the Internet of Things (IoT), where cameras and sensors reign supreme.

Meeting the advanced processing requirements of new and emerging vision applications requires advanced, flexible and scalable imaging and computer vision processing IP that:

  • Provides a comprehensive solution for computational photography and computer vision applications, delivering a human-like visual perception
  • Consists of vision DSP cores, Deep Neural Network toolkit, real time SW libraries, HW accelerators, and algorithm developers ecosystem
  • Optimizes performance, reduces power consumption and die size, providing efficient solution for mass market embedded devices
  • Provides a low-risk, cost-effective development route that minimizes time-to-market

target markets


 Support for dual-camera, low-light photography and image enhancement at minimum cost calls for an application specific vision processor.


Vision processing IP plays a vital role in camera-enabled automotive safety such as autonomous vehicles and ADAS applications.


Smart camera networks in surveillance and home security systems rely on advanced vision IP for video analytics and always-on operation.


Must-have features such as Sense, Avoid and Navigate require sophisticated computer vision capabilities, while keeping low power for better flight time.


Augmented reality, gesture recognition and 4K video put IP at the heart of camera-enabled applications in smartphones, tablets, media players and gaming consoles.


Imaging in wearables demand a fully integrated HW & SW DSP solution, operating with the lowest power from the minimum board space.

CEVA's industry-leading vision processing IP provides us with a comprehensive solution that enables us to integrate a host of innovative and intelligent system features into our ADAS product offerings.
