The Akida NSoC represents a revolutionary new breed of Neural Processing computing devices for Edge AI devices and systems. Each Akida NSoC has effectively 1.2 million neurons and 10 billion synapses, representing orders of magnitude better efficiency than other neural processing devices on the market. Comparisons to leading DNN accelerator devices show an order of magnitude better images/second/watt running industry standard benchmarks with MobileNet, MobileNet-SSD and Key Word Spotting, while maintaining excellent accuracy.
The Akida NSoC is designed for use as a stand-alone embedded accelerator or as a co-processor. It includes interfaces for ADAS sensors, audio sensors, and other IoT sensors. It also has high-speed data interfaces such as PCI-Express, USB, 12C and 13S. An on-chip MPU is used to control the configuration of the Akida Neuron Fabric as well as off-chip communication of metadata. The Akida NSoC represents a scalable solution utilizing a built in serial chip to chip connectivity to allow up to 64 devices to be arrayed for a single solution.
