Make your device smarter for a greener world!
After a totally virtual 2021 edition, the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is back in Las Vegas, from January 5 to 8, 2022, with more than 2000 exhibitors. Dolphin Design will be exhibiting under the French CEA banner at the Eureka Park, booth #60655. Stay tuned to find out more about our demo, using the SPEED platform we will present at the CES on Processing and AI.
SPEED platform: a strong response to the exponential requirements in energy efficiency for the AI-enabled devices
SPEED is an IP platform that combines both Analog-Mixed Signal and Digital IPs to enable highly energy efficient AI-enabled devices. SPEED platforms are made of:
- Multicore Versatile DSP Processor – PANTHER
- Neural Processing Unit accelerators – RAPTOR
These IP platforms have been designed to tackle the challenge raised by AI-enabled devices. The required computing power is strongly increasing by 1000x up to 100s of GOPs. These devices are either battery-operated or having strong power constraints, thus strong energy efficiency gains are needed. SPEED platform elegantly combined fine-grained, adaptive power management together with DSP and AI accelerators to achieve such challenges. Raptor, a key component of the SPEED platform, was made possible through the combined strengths of Dolphin Design and CEA-List. It offers the best compromise for Edge AI devices between software flexibility, energy efficiency and peak performance by leveraging CEA-List’s PNeuro® AI hardware and N2D2 /SESAM tools.
To demonstrate the gains, a demochip has been designed. Demonstrations based on TinyML benchmarks will be showcased @ CES 2022.
SPEED platform is labeled by the Solar Impulse Foundation
Our company has unique know-how in optimizing energy efficiency, which earned us the honor of being one of the 1000 companies worldwide to receive the Solar Impulse label.
