DSP IP for High Performance Sensor Fusion on an Embedded Budget

DSP IP for High Performance Sensor Fusion on an Embedded Budget
by Kalar Rajendiran on 08-04-2022 at 6:00 am

VPX Vector DSP Core Data Types

Whether we realize it or not, everyday applications we use depend on data gathered by sensors. We can bet that pretty much every application uses at least a couple of different types of sensors, if not more. That is because different types of sensors are better suited to collect data depending on the application, the environment … Read More
