* Polar Magnitude and Angle (PMA): is a block in PVP available in ADSP-BF609. If the bits per sample is 32, the input should be the port 2 output of the PMA block of the PVP. The lower 16 bits contain the gradient magnitude and the upper 16 bits contain the gradient angle. If the bits per sample is 16, the lower 11 bits contain the gradient magnitude and upper 5 bits contain the gradient angle information. Please refer to Hardware Reference Manual of ADSP-BF609 for more detail.
The Blackfin HOG SVM Detector is a Software Module meant for computer vision applications targeting Blackfin family of processors. The Blackfin HOG SVM Detector comes with an optimized implementation of Histogram of Oriented Gradients (HOG) and Support Vector Machine (SVM) classifier. This Software Module can be used for detection of various objects such as people, pets, cars etc in a variety of applications.
The Blackfin HOG SVM Detector module from ADI has been highly optimized to run on the Analog Devices’ Blackfin processor family. It is a self-contained software module based on an ADI proprietary design and has been tested with a variety of images. The Blackfin HOG SVM Detector module is fully re-entrant and multi-instance capable, and comes with an intuitive API which makes it easy for system integration.
Each module supports the Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) Blackfin or SHARC Processor family and is a licensed product that is available in object code format. Recipients must sign or accept a license agreement with ADI prior to being shipped or downloading the modules identified in the license agreement.
