Media Alert: Chris Rowen to Present at Embedded Vision Summit West 2014

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 21, 2014—Cadence Design Systems, Inc., a leader in global electronic design innovation, today announced that Cadence® Fellow and founder of Tensilica, Chris Rowen, is scheduled to present at Embedded Vision Summit West 2014 on May 29 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.


During his presentation entitled, “Taming the Beast: Performance and Energy Optimization Across Embedded Feature Detection and Tracking,” Dr. Rowen plans to discuss a cross-section of advanced feature detectors, including the algorithm, bit precision, arithmetic primitives and implementation optimizations that yield high-pixel processing rates, high-result quality and low energy. He will also examine how these optimization methods apply to kernels used in tracking applications, including fast connected-component labeling. From this, he will derive general principles on the priority and likely impact of different optimization types.

Cadence is scheduled to participate in the product showcase from 12:00pm to 1:00pm and present at the reception and exhibits from 5:30pm to 7:30pm. Visitors will have the opportunity to chat with technology experts and see demos of the latest Cadence IVP image/video DSP products.


Embedded Vision Summit West 2014 is on May 29, 2014, and Chris Rowen’s presentation is scheduled to take place from 11:30 am to 12:00 pm PT.
