XM4 DSP has been enriched with CEVA Deep Neural Network (CDNN) Software Framework. Some explanation could be useful before jumping into CDNN. The “Deep” of CDNN comes from “Deep Learning”, a family of neural network methods using high number of layers, so a deep network. The most popular deep learning neural network method is the… Read More
