Movidius licenses UltraSoC monitor IP

August 25, 2016 // By Peter Clarke
Vision and learning processor company Movidius Ltd. (Santa Clara, Calif.) has licensed monitor and analytics intellectual property from UltraSoC Ltd. (Cambridge, England).

Movidius plans to include the UltraSoC IP in its next-generation of machine vision systems-on-chip (SoCs). Movidius will use the UltraSoC hardware and software with its own MoviDebug technology, to create a debug and communications infrastructure that will support its end-to end product development flow.

"We’re expecting immediate gains from the ability to use on-chip USB as our primary debug interface, a simple change which saves us time and money, as well as providing data speeds more in keeping with our leading-edge low-power machine vision platform," said Brendan Barry, vice president of engineering at Movidius, in a statement issued by UltraSoC.

Rupert Baines, UltraSoC CEO, said Movidius has joined a list of customers that includes Lauterbach, Imagination (MIPS), and Teledyne LeCroy.
