Supporting the Movidius Myriad 2 Development Kit
Myriad 2 is a vision processor by Movidius that delivers high-performance computational imaging and visual awareness in severely power-constrained environments. For the latest Myriad Development Kit (MDK), Movidius has introduced new tools integrated into the Eclipse framework, partly designed and developed by toem: Trace Profiler and Graph Designer.
Trace Profiler is a tool used to visualize and merge software trace signals which are dumped into several buffers. The trace profiler is built on impulse, using a dedicated reader for the binary Movidius trace format (MTRD). The MTRD reader uses a meta file, pointing to a variable set of trace buffers. Beside reading the trace data, it also provides a set of predefined configurations to the user.
More about impulse
The Graph Designer creates applications based on the Movidius SIPP (Streamed Image Processing Pipeline) framework. It allows the user to design a SIPP Pipeline in a graphical user interface and generate source code that can be built with the Movidius Myriad Development Kit tool-chain and run on the Myriad 2 hardware development kit.
The Graph Designer is based on the Eclipse GEF framework using a generic java meta model. The meta model (including filter, attributes, connections, etc.) is extracted from the header files of the MDK tool-chain using the the CDT parser. Alternatively, model elements can be introduced using java script sections. A template systems allows to generate source code from the model in form of headers, source files and makefiles.
