The Linley Group Microprocessor Report Highlights BrainChip's Akida™ Spiking-Neural-Network Processor

Report examines applications of Akida's capabilities around pattern identification in unlabeled data

SAN FRANCISCO, brainchipinc.com, Oct. 31, 2019 – 

BrainChip Holdings Ltd. (ASX: BRN), a leading provider of ultra-low power, high performance edge AI technology, today announced that The Linley Group has completed an analysis of the company's Akida™ processor platform. The results of the analysis are available in a comprehensive report available for download free of charge from the BrainChip web site.

The report examines the intersection of a growing conglomeration of technology challenges with the development of Akida, a low-power, high-capability inferencing engine with the ability to learn new spiking patterns in edge applications, even when there is no connectivity available to centralized cloud servers.

Linley's analysts outlined Akida's core capabilities, architecture, and throughput potential, and pointed out Akida's biologically inspired design that mimics the spiking behavior of biological neurons. The report also describes BrainChip's two business models related to Akida. Available as a complete Neural Processing SoC or as embeddable IP, Akida's deployment flexibility can enable myriad use cases.

"The 28nm chip's AXI-based mesh network connects 80 event-based neural processor units (NPUs). The NPUs implement a spiking neural network," the report outlines, "but Akida also integrates spike converters that allow it to run convolutional neural networks."
