Second Generation Processor Recognized for Advances in Ultra-Low-Power Machine Learning
Irvine, Calif., March 30, 2023 – Syntiant Corp., a leader in edge AI deployment, today announced that its Syntiant® NDP200 Neural Decision Processor™ (NDP) has been named “Best Product of the Year” by the tinyML Foundation.
The award for Best ML Processing Chip, AI Accelerators was revealed during the 2023 tinyML Summit, the premier annual gathering of senior level technical experts and decision makers representing the fast growing global tinyML community.
“We are very grateful for the remarkable work of the tinyML Foundation that has led to the continued success of the summit and global growth of tinyML,” said Mallik Moturi, chief business officer at Syntiant, who was on hand to accept the award. “We are especially thrilled to win this year’s tinyML best product of the year award for the NDP200, which allows for vision AI to be incorporated into edge devices with near-zero power consumption, for always-on applications across all types of consumer and commercial use cases.”
Designed for always-on edge AI vision applications, the NDP200’s Syntiant Core 2™ architecture provides full control of multiple independent networks that can run concurrently at powers less than 2mW and with near zero latency. Ideal for use cases such as person detection, object classification, motion tracking and occupancy monitoring, the NDP200 brings highly accurate neural processing to consumer and commercial battery-powered devices, including IP and security cameras, video doorbells, and teleconferencing equipment, among other use cases.
