CEVA-MM3000 programmable high-definition video and image processing platform

CEVA-MM3000 programmable high-definition video and image processing platform

CEVA released the fully programmable high-definition (HD) video and imaging platform CEVA-MM3000, which is designed for the next generation of connected portable multimedia and home entertainment devices. CEVA will showcase the CEVA-MM3000 platform at a media conference in Beijing.

The low-power platform is based on a heterogeneous (heterogeneous), scalable multi-core architecture, capable of decoding and encoding full HD 1080p video at a frame rate of up to 60fps (frames per second). Advanced video standards such as AVS and VP6 / 7/8, as well as future standards such as Scalable Video Codec (SVC) and Multi-window Video Codec (MulTI-view Video Codec, MVC) for 3D video . In addition to augmented reality, gesture recognition, and face detection, a variety of unique add-on applications (proprietary add-on applicaTIons), CEVA-MM3000 also supports video and image pre / post-processing algorithms, such as zoom, anti Shaking and noise reduction. Crucially, these additional algorithms and unique applications implemented by CEVA-MM3000 allow designers to reach new levels in multimedia innovation and performance, while reducing or even eliminating those commonly used in multimedia SoCs to handle these Complicated engine.

Multi-core architecture designed for low power consumption and easy programming

As a unified and coherent structure, CEVA-MM3000 uses a multi-core heterogeneous method to meet the extreme and variable processing requirements in video and image signal processing. The core of the platform contains two dedicated processors, a Stream Processor and a Vector Processor, all of which constitute a complete multi-core system, including local and shared memory, peripherals, DMA and Standard bridge to external bus. This complete (comprehensive, integrated) multi-core platform is designed to meet the low power requirements of mobile devices. For example, H.264 HP decoding at 1080p 30fps requires power consumption as low as 150mW when using 40nm process devices.

The stream processor is responsible for code stream encoding, code stream operation, and control code execution, while the vector processor performs filtering and vector operations for pixel processing. Both the stream processor and the vector processor are designed for easy programming and are supported by an optimized C compiler and an application profiler (applicaTIon profiler). CEVA can provide authorized manufacturers with a set of pre-optimized video cores for the above two processors to achieve the flexibility of combining efficient low-level code with rapid C-level development.

Linby Group analyst Joseph Byrne, author of "CPU Core and Processor IP Guide" said: "Consumer demand for higher video quality and richer functionality seems to be endless. CEVA-MM3000 is a flexible, scalable, The robust software-based platform can meet the requirements of consumer electronics products. In the past, the realization of 1080p video engines required hardware design and implementation. CEVA-MM3000 subverted that traditional way with a unique concept. The programmable feature of this architecture, Not only can it efficiently support the video standard, but it can also implement the next-generation functions such as customer-specific post-processing algorithms and object recognition (object recogniTIon).

Gideon Wertheizer, CEO of CEVA, said: "The arrival of 4G wireless networks and the rise of connected homes will completely change the way people access and watch multimedia content. 1080p HD is gradually becoming the de facto standard for various multimedia devices. Support for an increasing number of video codecs is required. The high-performance, multi-core, and scalable architecture of CEVA-MM3000 is a software-only, low-power, and cost-effective platform that provides performance and flexibility that meets these needs and is applicable For any networked multimedia device. In addition, the unique video and image pre / post-processing algorithm support allows authorized vendors to achieve unique differentiation of their video processor designs with unique features and functions. "

Scalability and programmability enable a large number of optimized applications

In order to efficiently meet the precise requirements of a wide range of portable multimedia and home entertainment applications, CEVA-MM3000 uses a scalable heterogeneous (heterogeneous) architecture. The type and capacity of the memory, as well as the number of stream processors and vector processors, are configurable to meet the requirements of each specific application case. This scalability allows the CEVA-MM3000 to provide the best balance of power consumption and performance to meet smartphones, PMPs, tablets and other mobile devices, as well as Blu-ray DVD players, HDTVs, game consoles and Full HD performance requirements for multi-stream devices.

As a fully programmable engine, CEVA-MM3000 can easily support any codec or other video processing software. This programmability enables SoC designers to quickly adopt new video standards through software upgrades without changing the hardware design, and can easily develop unique video and imaging applications, including pre / post-processing and video analysis. This flexibility can extend the product life cycle, achieve design reuse, and allow customers to use non-standard imaging or unique algorithms to achieve product differentiation.
