Toshiba Coorporation has recently revealed that it will expand its line-up of Visconti image recognition processors, launching the Visconti 3 series. The first device in this new series, the TMPV7528XBG is enhanced by the integration of additional processor cores to support various applications, and will extend the range of use beyond automotive systems to industrial applications.

Toshiba initially developed the Viscontiseries of image recognition processors to advance the creation of camera-based vision systems for automotive applications. The processors recognise traffic lanes, vehicles, pedestrians, traffic signs and more and both the Visconti 2 and 3 series devices incorporate image processing accelerators that detect pedestrians with high level detection ratio in real time.

In addition to these capabilities, the Visconti 3 lowers the software-development hurdle for customers by integrating an ARM 32bit RISC Cortex - A9 MPCore (2 cores) dedicated to supporting applications interfacing with the image recognition processor.

With Visconti 3, Toshiba will seek to expand the image recognition processor business beyond automotive systems into camera-based vision systems for industrial applications. The company targets annual sales of 2 million Visconti image recognition processors in fiscal 2015.
