From digital surveillance cameras to autonomous vehicle functions, an array of AI-driven applications is generating demand for higher performance neural network processing at the edge. Many of today’s designs are expected to support up to 1,000 tera operations per second (TOPS). With the way things are progressing, there is every reason to believe the TOPS expectations will continue to rise even higher.
Join the Synopsys NPU IP Deep Dive at the Embedded Vision Summit 2022
Anticipating and addressing these performance demands, Synopsys has unveiled the industry’s highest performance neural processor IP. The Synopsys ARC® NPX6 and NPX6FS neural processing unit (NPU) IP deliver on AI application needs for real-time compute and ultra-low power consumption. Thanks to hardware and software connectivity features that enable implementation of multiple NPU instances, the IP can achieve up to 3,500 TOPS of performance on a single SoC. ARC NPX6FS NPU IP also supports ISO 26262 ASIL D compliance by meeting stringent random hardware fault detection and systematic functional safety development flow requirements, making it ideal for safety-critical applications such as those in the automotive space.
You can learn more about the ARC NPX family at the Embedded Vision Summit on Thursday, May 19, in Santa Clara, California, where we’ll host a Synopsys Deep Dive session from noon to 3 p.m. on how to “Optimize AI Performance and Power for Tomorrow’s Neural Network Applications.” In addition, Tom Michiels, a principal R&D engineer in the Synopsys Solutions Group, will speak at 10:15 a.m. PST on Wednesday, May 18, on “What’s Next for Neural Networks: Will Transformers Replace RNNs and CNNs?” Also, be sure to stop by Booth #719 for product demos.
