Akida is based on a neuromorphic, event-based, fully digital design with additional convolutional features. The combination of spiking, event-based neurons, and convolutional functions is unique. It offers many advantages, including on-chip learning, small size, sparsity, and power consumption in the microwatt/milliwatt ranges. The underlying technology is not the usual matrix multiplier, but up to a million digital neurons with either 1, 2, or 4-bit synapses. Akida’s extremely efficient event-based neural processor IP is commercially available as a device (AKD1000) and as an IP offering that can be integrated into partner System on Chips (SoC). The hardware can be configured through the MetaTF software, integrated into TensorFlow layers equating up to 5 million filters, thereby simplifying model development, tuning and optimization through popular development platforms like TensorFlow/Keras and Edge Impulse. There are a fast-growing number of models available through the Akida model zoo and the Brainchip ecosystem.
