Face detection system designed ‘in an hour’, claims TI
Texas Instruments has introduced a fingerprint recognition and face detection development kit based on its real-time DSP which comes with biometrics analysis software, preloaded.
The C6748 DSP development kit incorporates the firm’s C6748 SYS/BIOS software which includes demonstrations for biometric analytics applications, such as fingerprint recognition and face detection.
The software includes the latest SYS/BIOS real-time kernel; the C6748 StarterWare software package, which provides lightweight, operating-system-independent software libraries and utilities; Code Generation Tools; as well as DSP core performance benchmarks that show the real-time processing power of TI’s C674x DSPs.
“Developers will be able to run demos in less than 10 minutes and begin creating DSP applications in less than one hour,” claimed the supplier.
The design kit also includes Code Composer Studio integrated development environment (IDE) v5.1
There are options to add display and user interfaces, such as the camera board from Leopard Imaging and LCD screens.
TI’s C6748 DSP development kit is available for $195 and the C6748 SYS/BIOS SDK is pre-loaded with the C6748 StarterWare software package.
The OMAP-L138 DSP + ARM9 development kit is also available supported by a new Linux SDK. Code Composer Studio IDE v5.1 is pre-loaded on both kits or can be licensed starting at $495.
