Gyrfalcon’s Lightspeeur® AI Chip Made its First CES Appearance
Las Vegas – January 9, 2018 – At the 2018 CES, Gyrfalcon, a leading developer of low-cost, low power, high performance AI processors, announces its latest AI technology Lightspeeur® 2801S and newly launched applications.
Founded in 2017, Gyrfalcon made the first CES appearance with its intelligent matrix processor Lightspeeur® 2801S, based on APiM architecture that uses memory as the AI processing unit. This eliminates the huge data movement that results in high power consumption, enabling a superior energy efficiency at 9.3Tops/Watt. The architecture features true, on-chip parallelism, in situ computing, and eliminates memory bottlenecks. It has roughly 28,000 parallel computing cores and does not require external memory for AI inference.
Gyrfalcon is now offering turn-key reference designs powered by Lightspeeur® 2801S, including USB Dongles, Multi-chip Boards and System Development Kits.
The reference designs aim to provide collaborative AI platforms for various types of applications like mobile edge computing, AI based IoT, consumer portable devices, smart surveillance video, AR/VR products, face detection/recognition, natural language processing, deep learning enabled devices, AI data center servers, autonomous driving, and etc.
Numerous companies, both large and small, are developing AI processors. Gyrfalcon believes it has at least a year head start, with silicon in hand now. Lightspeeur® 2801S is in production at the moment and is available to qualified customers. Stop by Hospitality Suite 2822 at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
