SPEED IP Platforms

System Platform for Energy Efficient Design - SPEED

SPEED is the response to energy efficiency challenges for AIoT systems

Easier, faster, safer design of energy efficient SoC

Do more with less energy

By 2030, 24B of IoT devices will be battery powered and 5B batteries will be replaced every year (15M units per day!). The exponential growth of needs for greater device interoperability, predictability and performances is challenged by the global need for more energy frugality.

The solution to deal with data deluge, while preventing the increase of power consumed by data centers, is known as Edge AI. This solution consists in transferring most of the processing intelligence from the cloud to the sensor or close to it. It translates into an unprecedented need to increase performances of «smart sensors» or «smart devices» by a factor of 1,000 at constant energy consumption.

With SPEED IP platforms, we are positioned as THE provider of solutions for Edge AI System-on-Chip designers. We enable our customers to do much more with less energy resulting in major benefits on environment.
