BrainChip completes testing of production version of Akida chip


ALISO VIEJO, Calif .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX: BRN), (OTCQX: BCHPY), a leading provider of ultra-low-power, high-performance artificial intelligence technologies and the world’s leading commercial producer of neuromorphic AI chips, today confirmed that the functionality and performance testing of the production AKD1000 chips was completed, which showed better performance than the original engineering samples.

As part of the continued development of its Akida â„¢ Neuromorphic System-on-Chip (NSoC), BrainChip has tested a production version of its AKD1000 chip with several neural network applications including object classification, keyword detection and advanced neural networks. The improved performance and reduced power consumption were achieved through a better layout and some minor design changes, which were recognized after previous testing on earlier engineering samples.

Akida production chips were made by TSMC in Taiwan in a 28nm process. The chips are now integrated into full PCIe and Mini-PCIe cards. These evaluation cards and systems are shipped to early access customers for further testing and verification to see how they perform on customer products.

“This is another important step for the company as we move from our research and development phase to the full production and commercialization of the AKD1000 chip and the Akida IP,” said Peter van. der Made, CEO of BrainChip. “We have already seen significant adoption by early access customers looking to leverage the obvious benefits that Akida offers beyond the capabilities of other AI products. Akida is a “next generation” AI device that offers real-time on-chip learning and operates at very low power consumption. ”

BrainChip is currently inviting partners and potential customers to order development kits to build Akida-based applications and solutions, and learn how to bring artificial intelligence to the forefront in a way that existing technologies cannot. . The solution is high performance, small, ultra-low power, and enables a wide range of edge capabilities. The NSoC Akida and the intellectual property can be used in applications such as Smart Home, Smart Health, Smart City and Smart Transportation. These applications include, but are not limited to, home automation and remote controls, industrial IoT, robotics, security cameras, sensors, unmanned aircraft, autonomous vehicles, medical instruments, object detection , sound detection, smell and taste detection, gesture control and cybersecurity.

About BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX: BRN, OTCQX: BCHPY)

BrainChip is a global technology company that produces a revolutionary neuromorphic processor that brings artificial intelligence to the forefront in a way that exceeds the capabilities of other products. The chip is high performance, small, ultra low power, and enables a wide range of advanced capabilities that include on-chip training, learning, and inference. The Event Based Neural Network Processor takes its inspiration from the cutting edge nature of the human brain and is implemented in an industry standard digital process. By mimicking brain processing, BrainChip pioneered a processing architecture, called Akida â„¢, which is both scalable and flexible to meet the demands of edge devices. At the edge, sensor inputs are analyzed at the point of acquisition rather than transmitting through the cloud to a data center. Akida is designed to provide a complete, ultra-low power and fast AI Edge network for visual, audio, olfactory and intelligent transducer applications. Reducing system latency provides faster response and a more energy efficient system that can reduce the large carbon footprint of data centers.
