EETimes: BrainChip Launches Event-Domain AI Inference Dev Kits

via EETimes

BrainChip, the neuromorphic computing IP vendor, launched two development kits for its Akida neuromorphic processor during this week’s Linley Fall Processor Conference. Both kits feature the company’s Akida neuromorphic SoC: an x86 Shuttle PC development kit and an Arm-based Raspberry Pi kit. BrainChip is offering the tools to developers working with its spiking neural network processor in hopes of licensing its IP. Akida silicon is also available.

BrainChip’s neuromorphic technologies enables ultra-low power AI for analyzing data in edge systems where extremely low-power, real-time processing of sensor data is sought. The company has developed a neural processing unit (NPU) designed to process spiking neural networks (SNNs), a brain-inspired neural network that differs from mainstream deep-learning approaches. Like the brain, an SNN relies on “spikes” that convey information spatially and temporally. That is, the brain recognizes… READ THE FULL ARTICLE
