SAN JOSE, Calif., 16 May 2016 -- Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDNS) and Uurmi Systems today announced that Uurmi’s fog removal software targeted for automotive and camera markets is now available on the Cadence® Tensilica® Vision digital signal processor (DSP). By porting their fog removal software to the Tensilica Vision DSP, Uurmi achieved up to 5X higher performance, with 15X less power consumption.
Uurmi’s fog removal software eliminates fog present in the photo and applies correction to improve the image. It uses a spatial diffusion filtering-based approach with local contrast enhancement to remove fog during the image post-processing stage. It also offers fog correction for images captured from un-calibrated camera systems. Uurmi’s software provides fog correction with scene sharpness preservation and is capable of fog/non-fog region separation.

The Tensilica family of imaging/vision DSPs was designed for the complex algorithms in imaging, video and computer vision applications, including innovative multi-frame image capture, video pre- and post-processing, object and face recognition, low-light enhancement and many other complex tasks.
