Cadence Design Systems Inc. and Sensory Inc. has reported that Sensory's TrulySecure face authentication software is now available on the Cadence Tensilica Vision P5 digital signal processor (DSP). The companies stated that the technology makes it much easier for mobile designers to cut the power needed for face authentication to unlock a mobile phone, tablet, or their Internet of Things (IoT) device using a standard camera.

Sensory's face recognition technology uses a standard mobile phone camera to identify a user and authenticate his or her face to unlock the device. By using the Tensilica Vision P5 DSP and Cadence's extensive imaging/vision software function library, which is optimised to lower processing time by over 8X compared to a standard host CPU, system designers can easily deploy Sensory's robust, secure and extremely quick authentication technology, the companies indicated.

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.
