BrainChip Accelerator is an 8-lane, PCI-Express add-in card that increases the speed and accuracy of the object recognition function of BrainChip Studio software by up to six times. It does this by accelerating video scaling, spike generation, and spiking neuron model comparisons
BrainChip Accelerator increases the performance of object recognition provided by BrainChip Studio software and algorithms. The low-power accelerator card can detect, extract and track objects using a proprietary static neural network (SNN) technology. It provides a sevenfold improvement in images/second/watt, compared to traditional convolutional neural networks accelerated by graphics processing units (GPUs)
Their spiking neural network provides instantaneous 'one-shot' learning, is fast at detecting, extracting and tracking objects, and is very low power. These are critical attributes for automobile manufacturers processing the large amounts of video required for ADAS and AV applications
BrainChip Ships First BrainChip Accelerator To a Major European Car Maker for Evaluation in ADAS and AV Systems. BrainChip Accelerator will be evaluated for use in Advanced Driver Assisted (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicle (AV) applications. BrainChip Accelerator increases the performance of object recognition provided by BrainChip Studio software and algorithms.
