Complete Neural Processor for Edge AI

via Design & Reuse

The Akida Neuromorphic IP is the first neuromorphic IP available in the market. Inspired by the biological function of neurons but engineered on a digital logic process, this event-based spiking neural network (SNN) IP is inherently lower power than traditional convolutional neural networks (CNN) accelerator IP. When using the unique BrainChip CNN2SNN conversion flow, the event-based nature of SNNs enable converted CNNs to be implemented with very low power consumption and high throughput. Because the IP is based upon neuromorphic SNN, it enables unsupervised learning allowing for autonomous edge applications. The Akida Neuromorphic IP contains interfaces through a standard AXI bus making it easily integrated with any ASIC controller.
