I think they target mobile devices so speed needs to be fast while poweef needs to be low.

@dnandy, thanks for the interesting comments. I can understand how a dedicated hardware architecture results in better efficiency (i.e. performance improvement), but I am not clear as to how power consumption is reduced. e.g. we are comparing power consumption for gesture recognition between the MM-3101 and an ARM Cortex A9.

It is about footprints. It can take same power to power ten chips when you can have them in one chip.

Power and area - monolithin chip gives you better value in power and integration

thank you @dnandy, can you tell how much power can be saved this way? Kris

This is a comment to both.Image understand tasks require 2-D area based image processing, best applied using vector processors and data-flow architectures. Doing this is SW really reduces it multiple for loop structures, which consume cycles and power. A dedicated data-flow vector processing pipeline can do it efficiently at lower power. The key is to balance the HW flexibility so that programability is not impacted

I suspect that this will either be a short-lived product or end up only in niche applications. The next generation of processors will likely have enough horsepower to do the same tasks in software without a significant performance hit.

Why does gesture recognition require dedicated silicon? Can't this be done in DSP or microprocessor? Kris

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
