SAN JOSE, Calif.– Cadence Design Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNS) today unveiled its next-generation AI IP and software tools to address the escalating demand for on-device and edge AI processing. The new highly scalable Cadence® Neo™ Neural Processing Units (NPUs) deliver a wide range of AI performance in a low-energy footprint, bringing new levels of performance and efficiency to AI SoCs. Delivering up to 80 TOPS performance in a single core, the Neo NPUs support both classic and new generative AI models and can offload AI/ML execution from any host processor–including application processors, general-purpose microcontrollers and DSPs–with a simple and scalable AMBA® AXI interconnect. Complementing the AI hardware, the new NeuroWeave™ Software Development Kit (SDK) provides developers with a "one-tool" AI software solution across Cadence AI and Tensilica® IP products for no-code AI development.

"While most of the recent attention on AI has been cloud-focused, there are an incredible range of new possibilities that both classic and generative AI can enable on the edge and within devices," said Bob O'Donnell, president and chief analyst at TECHnalysis Research. "From consumer to mobile and automotive to enterprise, we're embarking on a new era of naturally intuitive intelligent devices. For these to come to fruition, both chip designers and device makers need a flexible, scalable combination of hardware and software solutions that allow them to bring the magic of AI to a wide range of power requirements and compute performance, all while leveraging familiar tools. New chip architectures that are optimized to accelerate ML models and software tools with seamless links to popular AI development frameworks are going to be incredibly important parts of this process."
