Ottawa, Canada (PRWEB) May 29, 2014
CogniVue Corporation, which licenses its APEX Image Cognition Processor (ICP) technology to semiconductor vendors, announced today the launch of its APEX Partner ProgramTM at the Embedded Vision Summit in Santa Clara, CA. CogniVue’s APEX ICP technology drives a >100x advantage in performance per area per power for embedded vision processing compared to conventional processor architectures, making it a top choice for System-on-Chip (SoC) vendors integrating embedded vision into their products. With the APEX Partner Program, CogniVue is creating an ecosystem of dedicated “APEX-certified” application software and design services partners.
“CogniVue provides not just the APEX ICP core for high performance low power embedded vision processing, but also a unique set of APEX programming tools as well as an extensive suite of image and vision processing algorithms in our APEX-CV library,” said Tom Wilson VP Business Development at CogniVue. “Now we are working with a selected and expert set of partners in the APEX Partner Program to ensure the end customers of the SoC product have a complete set of application and design service providers to get to market quickly with APEX-enabled solutions.”
CogniVue is enabling their APEX Partners with access to: CogniVue’s IP customers and their end-customers, APEX-certification training, APEX Programmer Tools, APEX-CV library, and CogniVue’s design architects and algorithm expertise.
CogniVue’s APEX Partner Program is a unique approach involving a close business relationship with the members of the APEX Partner Program. For this reason, the program is limited to a select group of dedicated and committed application software and design services companies with well-established market presence and specifically relevant expertise. CogniVue is pleased to announce the following companies at this launch of the APEX Partner Program:
