Amol Borkar, Senior Product and Marketing Manager for Vision and AI DSPs at Cadence Tensilica, delivers a product demonstration at the January 2020 Consumer Electronics Show. Specifically, Borkar showcases Black Sesame Technologies’ A500 (HS1) SOC, which features the Tensilica Vision P6 DSP along with Black Sesame Technologies’ own Ultra Deep Learning Neural Network hardware accelerator.

The Vision P6 DSP acts as a controller, handling hardware scheduling and both pre- and post-processing, as well as accelerating several neural network layers. Leveraging these two IPs, the SOC is able to very efficiently perform ADAS (advanced driver assistance systems) functions such as pedestrian detection, street sign detection, lane detection, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning.
