Gyrfalcon is Named as a Top 10 Processor for AI Acceleration at the Endpoint in 2020 by EE Times

Gyrfalcon uses a processor-in-memory technique that is particularly power-efficient compared with other architectures for high-performance Edge AI with low energy use

MILPITAS, Calif.May 21, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Gyrfalcon Technology, Inc. (GTI) designed the 4th generation, best of breed neural accelerator specifically for mass market IoT and Edge AI Devices. EE Times writes: “Designed for the consumer electronics market, Gyrfalcon’s Lightspeeur 5801 offers 2.8 TOPS at 224-mW power consumption (the equivalent of 12.6 TOPS/W) with 4-ms latency. Gyrfalcon uses a processor-in-memory technique that is particularly power-efficient compared with other architectures.” This recognition underscores GTI’s commitment to optimizing AI-powered solutions that deliver an unmatched ratio of high performance-to-low energy consumption with reduced production costs. The newest AI accelerator is recently implemented in LG’s Q70 mid-range smartphone, handling inference for camera effects.

GTI provides processing power for AI and ML workloads for almost every application, from machine-to-machine/human visions to voice interface. The AI accelerator chips easily integrate into a variety of host processors embedded in endpoint devices such as smartphones, tablets, smart cameras, surveillance cameras, IoTs as well as robotic vehicles and data centers.

GTI’s commercially available AI chips also support the CDVA (Compact Descriptor for Video Analysis) standard, enabling video/image searching & coding under the emerging VCM (Video Coding for Machine) standard. Many markets will benefit from the adoption of VCM, such as Smart Home, Smart City, Autonomous Vehicle, Intelligent Industry, and Intelligent Transportation.
