Fujitsu Labs recently announced the development of a multi-core single-chip image processor that will perform image processing that has, in the past, required custom large-scale integration, and that has the capability to easily accommodate upgrades and changes.
The chip has four FR-V processor cores that operate at 533 MHz, and has the capability to perform processing tasks at 51.2 giga operations per second, and transfer data at a speed of one gigabyte per second. This is four times the processing and data transfer speeds of a single FR-V processor. It processes using only software. It is intended for a wide variety of high-performance consumer applications, including those that involve HDTV.
A Multi-Image Display Processor
The ideal multi-image processor should possess high image quality, multi-format video inputs, and a full breadth of alarm detection, data extraction, aspect ratio detection systems, as well as a user-friendly interface that makes all of these elements readily accessible to the operator. Of course, a suitable system will also have to integrate with existing systems within the current facility.
