Aspinity Raises $5.3M to Deploy Neuromorphic Analog Processing IC

eetimes.com, Sept. 09, 2020 – 

West Virginia University spinout Aspinity Inc. announced it has raised $5.3 million in Series A funding to accelerate the deployment of its reconfigurable analog modular processor (RAMP), an ultra-low power, analog processing chip designed to detect, analyze and classify raw analog sensor data.

10x less power

Demand for always-on sensing devices is booming, with nearly one billion always-on voice first devices expected to enter the market by 2023, according to SAR Insight & Consulting. In anticipation, Aspinity has developed an "analyze-first-in-analog" approach which is claimed to reduce the power required at the edge by up to 10x and the volume of data handled by up to 100x for always-on applications.

Launched in June 2019, Aspinity's RAMP IC analyzes the analog sensor data right as it enters the device and keeps higher-power downstream digital components in a deep sleep mode unless an event of interest is detected, Thomas Doyle, CEO and founder of Aspinity, explained to EE Times. "The RAMP IC is able to determine which data are important up front, before the data are digitized, so we completely eliminate the high-power digitization and analysis of irrelevant data, saving significant battery life."
