Press release date: December 19, 2013

OTTAWA - CogniVue Corporation, who introduced the world's first Image Cognition Processor (ICP), announced today the APEX Software Development Platform for vision application development on its 2nd generation APEX ICP IP. CogniVue's APEX ICP IP core drives a >100x processing advantage vs conventional processing architectures for embedded vision applications.  The APEX Software Development platform allows customers to both evaluate the CogniVue technology and then continue with software development on the same platform. 

The first APEX Software Development Platform is based on a CogniVue APEX-321 ICP core implemented in an FPGA System-on-Chip platform with a Green Hills Software INTEGRITY® OS board support package.   The APEX Software Development Platform includes a license to the easy-to-use and intuitive APEX Programmer Tools, allowing developers to quickly design, debug and optimize their own vision algorithms. The APEX Software Development Platform combined with the APEX Programmer Tools drive fast time-to-market for customers developing APEX-based SOC products.

"Embedded vision is a significant growth area and we see CogniVue as a key application enabler with their APEX ICP IP combined with our INTEGRITY RTOS," said Dan Mender, vice president of business development at Green Hills.

"Our new APEX Software Development Platform is just one part of an extensive and comprehensive development environment we are deploying to get our customers to market faster," said Simon Morris, CEO of CogniVue.  "Stay tuned for more announcements about CogniVue ICP and embedded vision enablement."

CogniVue has already licensed its APEX Core IP to Freescale Semiconductor and Digital Media Professionals, with more licensees to be announced near term.  CogniVue is innovating with vision and enabling a new wave of embedded vision applications with its ICP Technology.  Please contact CogniVue at for an introduction to this new platform at CES 2014 Vegas, January 7-10th, 2014.
