Movidius today announced that it has joined the Global Semiconductor Alliance (GSA).
“Movidius has built an entirely new architecture of ultralow power, high-performance and programmable vision processors, software and development tools to support the next generation of mobile, wearable and robotics applications,” said Remi El-Ouazzane, CEO of Movidius. “In a world of constantly evolving and emerging technologies, we are honored to be a member of GSA and join other innovative companies within the semiconductor industry.”
Movidius recently announced that it is working with Google to create intelligent vision-based applications beyond the capabilities of today’s mobile devices, powered by the Movidius Myriad 1 vision processor. The Myriad 1 vision processor aims to mirror human vision with virtually the same level of depth, clarity and realism in real time, giving devices a human-like understanding of space and motion to drive new and enhanced types of user experiences.
“Congratulations to Movidius for their recently announced partnership on Project Tango with Google. We are very pleased to have this exciting company join the GSA,” said Jodi Shelton, co-founder and president of GSA. “Movidius is a great example of a passionate, innovative startup. We look forward to their contributions to the industry as a whole and to our events and collaborative forums. As the GSA gains new members like Movidius, we are ultimately supporting and enhancing the global semiconductor industry.”
