Training: TI's C553x DSPs - industry's lowest price and lowest power DSPs

Imagine what you could do with a $2 DSP. You could finally add sophisticated signal processing power to audio and voice applications such as headsets, speakers, smart phone audio accessories and intelligence to your sensor applications at an unprecedented price. The TMS320C553x ultra-low-power DSP generation featuring the lowest power and lowest cost DSP in the industry, starting at $1.95/1 ku, are now available to enable you to do that and much more. Offering the industry's lowest power with active power less than 0.15 mW/MHz at 1.05V and standby power less than 0.15 mW, these highly integrated processors enable developers to get DSP sophistication at a microcontroller price and power consumption.

Engaging applications for augmented reality

Augmented reality is the perfect application to take advantage of the OMAP platform's high quality camera ISP, powerful ARM MPCores, and outstanding graphics capabilities. One example is Metaio's junaio browser, which makes reading a magazine much more interactive as it gives readers the ability to see images differently or view additional content.

Training: Improving Video Quality through Spatio-temporal de-noising on C64x+

Live camera encoding applications such as Video surveillance, camcorder, and video conferencing applications tend to have a poor video quality or a high encoding bit-rate due to the noise present in the captured video sequence. There are many schemes that exist for noise reduction. Typically, spatial-only noise reduction methods cannot achieve the same level of noise reduction as spatio-temporal noise reduction schemes can. However, temporal filtering needs to be carefully done to avoid causing trails or blurriness in the filtered video as there can be camera motion as well object motion from frame to frame. The class of spatio-temporal filtering methods suffer from problems such as high complexity, lack of a good method for estimating the noise level, and ghosting due to filtering of mis-registered pixels. In this presentation, we present a low complexity, noise-level adaptive, robust spatio-temporal noise reduction method that has realized on C64x+ processor. It can be used as a stand-alone component or can be built into a video encoder. The complexity to process standard definition video is only in the range of 70 Million Cycles per second, but gives a significant improvement in the encoded video quality.

Training: Achieving 720p encode/decode performance by leveraging the ARM Cortex A8 and the IVA2.2

TI OMAP3xxx class of devices were originally designed with D-1 class of video codecs as the target that would run on the IVA2.2. However, the device has a very powerful ARM Cortex A8 with NEON co-processor in addition to the IVA2.2. To extend the capability of the device, Ittiam has come up with a heterogeneous multi-core implementation of multiple video encoders and decoders that utilise both the Cortex and the IVA2.2 to achieve 720p resolution performance. This presentation will cover an overview of the high-level software architecture for a video decoder and a video encoder. It will also highlight the ability of this design to transfer as much of the processing to the IVA2.2 as the device clocking gets higher so that a single design cover from the low-end OMAP3530 devices to the high-end OMAP37xx devices. The challenges with such design and the advantages and side-effects would be presented.

Automotive rear-view camera demonstration

Rear-view cameras are quickly becoming an integral part of driver-assistance systems. In this video, we demonstrate two DSP algorithms that help drivers interpret rear-view images: first, we remove the fish-eye lens distortions to present the driver a more natural, de-warped view behind the car. Second, we synthesize a bird's-eye view of the scene, which improves the driver's sense of orientation and distance to other vehicles. On a DM6437 DaVinci System-on-chip, our optimized solution requires less than 5% of the available compute power, leaving ample room for advanced safety applications to run on the same processor.
