Movidius' focus, as noted in the article, is "computational imaging" and this certainly is not "your father's Oldsmobile" of graphics imaging. The July announcement on funding is something interesting but the personnel announced as being brought on board (e.g. El-Ouazzane and Dobberpuhl) seems REALLY interesting; folks who have been very successful in the past in getting new ventures underway and in attracting corporate attention and interest. Graphics-related computation has been a major driver of innovation and exceedingly important of late for advancements in silicon processor features and the field of computational imaging may become a signficant part of why this trend continues for some time.

Would be interesting to see that happen. For sure image processing has become a major maret for chips, with a lot of competition, I think, too.

Image processing seems to be a new frontier for IC design...time for the ARM like company to emerge in this space?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
