Intel’s Myriad X Vision Chip Incorporates Neural Network https://t.co/P5w2oiJYN5

Intel does its Movidius Myriad 2 MA2x5x vision processing unit (VPU) one better with the latest Myriad X VPU (see figure) . The Myriad X includes the same type of 128-bit VLIW SHAVE (Streaming Hybrid Architecture Vector Engine) processors, but bumps the number up to 16. It also has the same 32-bit RISC processors. It also increases the number of MIPI lanes to 16, allowing for support of eight HD cameras. The biggest change is the addition of more hardware accelerators and neural network hardware. The Myriad 2 is already being used with drones like DJI’s $499 SPARK , where its camera is now being used for collision avoidance and pilot gesture recognition. The challenge for the Myriad 2 is that some deep neural network (DNN) processing needs to be done in software, either on the Myriad 2 or the host processor. The Myriad X can do this in hardware, which significantly speeds ...
