Global Visual Processing Unit Market Report 2017 - Research and Markets
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The
Visual Processing Unit Report" newsletter to their offering.
This report covers Vision Processing Units (VPUs) but what makes a
processor a - vision - processor? In many regards "You'll know one when
you see one" covers the situation but there are some things that can be
Included in the definition are IP blocks such as a GPU (think Qualcomm
or Nvidia) or a wideSIMD DSP (like Ceva or Tensilica (News - Alert)), or a programmable
camera pipeline (Apical or Intel). The term also includes full SoCs that
combine one or more of the characteristics of the above IP blocks along
with other functions such as Movidius and Inuitive which both add
hardware acceleration of specific functions to their DSP-based blocks.
Lastly, nove architectures such as Wave Computing which target a wider
range of functions but are also well suited to acceleration of vision
tasks are included.
The purpose and intent of this report is to progressively summarize the
available hardware solutions for vision processing in a way that
identifies their fundamental characteristics and capabilities without
overloading the reader with too much technical detail. Engineers may
want more but marketers and executives will find enough to keep them
abreast of the field along with, hopefully, insightful and
though-provoking commentary to help them develop a rounded view of the
Each chapter of the report summarizes the vision technology offerings of
one company, with a brief company description and a closing commentary
that includes sections on market focus and penetration as well as the
This study covers the technologies involved in machine vision (MV)
systems, such as components that constitute a workable MV system, recent
advances in the technologies involved, various traditional and new
applications and global markets for these technologies and applications.
