Novatek Adopts CEVA’s Newest Sensor Hub DSP for New Multi-sensor IP Digital camera SoC


ROCKVILLE, MD – December 5, 2022 CEVA, Inc. (NASDAQ: CEVA), the main licensor of wi-fi connectivity and good sensing applied sciences and co-creation options in the present day introduced that Novatek Microelelctonics Corp, a number one fabless chip design firm, has licensed and deployed the SP500 DSP from CEVA’s SensPro2 Sensor Hub DSP structure household in its latest era NT98530 multi-sensor IP Digital camera SoC focusing on surveillance, retail, good metropolis, transportation and extra. Novatek was ranked No.2 in Taiwan and No. 6 on this planet by fabless chip design home income in 2021, and focuses on good show and good picture whole options, starting from full line of show ICs and SoC for all sorts of show and picture purposes. So far, Novatek has shipped greater than 1 billion SoCs worldwide.

This newest engagement extends the lengthy and profitable partnership between the 2 firms, which spans nearly a decade of licensing a number of generations of CEVA’s pc imaginative and prescient, audio/voice and AI DSPs. The businesses will showcase this newest Edge AI digital camera answer at CES 2023 in CEVA’s assembly suite.

“Right now’s multi-sensor safety cameras want highly effective pc imaginative and prescient and edge AI processing capabilities to maximise efficiency and reduce the reliance on cloud connectivity for clever evaluation,” mentioned Novatek AVP Jimmy Su. “CEVA’s SP500 DSP delivers superior real-time efficiency for pc imaginative and prescient, AI-based analytics and multi-sensing sensor fusion on the edge, guaranteeing our clients have a robust, versatile edge AI digital camera answer which they will customise to their necessities.”

The Novatek NT98530 SoC is a highly-integrated SoC with excessive picture high quality, low bitrate, low energy consumption, offering the most effective value/efficiency Edge-Computing IP digital camera answer available in the market in the present day for multi-sensor safety cameras. It helps as much as 640M pixel/sec to attain over 8MPixel/60FPS video efficiency whereas concurrently performing superior AI on every body, with minimal energy consumption. The built-in SensPro2, CEVA’s newest DSP era together with its complete & optimized SDKs delivers as much as 6X DSP efficiency enchancment in pc imaginative and prescient, 2X AI inferencing enchancment and 20% decrease energy in comparison with its predecessor, guaranteeing that Novatek’s newest SoC has ample efficiency out there to assist even probably the most complicated pc imaginative and prescient algorithms and neural networks inferencing.

“We’re happy to increase our collaboration with Novatek to allow their newest era surveillance SoC assist a number of cameras and probably the most superior pc/imaginative and prescient AI use instances,” mentioned Ran Snir, Vice President and Basic Supervisor of the Imaginative and prescient Enterprise Unit at CEVA. “Our SensPro2 DSP is primed to assist extra of the digital camera analytics workload in actual time on the edge, together with the power to carry out imaginative and prescient/AI processing for a number of digital camera sensors in parallel, at minimal energy consumption”.
