Chimera GPNPU Block Diagram

As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) models continue to evolve at a breathtaking pace, the demands on hardware for inference and real-time processing grow increasingly complex. Traditional hardware architectures for acceleration are proving inadequate to keep up with these rapid advancements in ML … Read More

Baby Llama min

Tis the season for transformer-centric articles apparently – this is my third within a month. Clearly this is a domain with both great opportunities and challenges: extending large language model (LLM) potential to new edge products and revenue opportunities, with unbounded applications and volumes yet challenges in meeting… Read More

For what seems like a long time in the fast-moving world of AI, CNNs and their relatives have driven AI engine architectures at the edge. While the nature of neural net algorithms has evolved significantly, they are all assumed to be efficiently handled on a heterogenous platform processing through the layers of a DNN: an NPU for … Read More

Chimera SDK

I have observed before that the success of an AI engine at the edge rests heavily on the software interface to drive that technology. Networks trained in the cloud need considerable massaging to optimize for smaller and more specialized edge devices. Moreover, an AI task at the edge depends on a standalone pipeline demanding a mix… Read More

Memory Optimization Equals Power Minimization

Performance, Power and Area (PPA) are the commonly touted metrics in the semiconductor industry placing PPA among the most widely used acronyms relating to chip development. And rightly so as these three metrics greatly impact all electronic products that are developed. The degree of impact depends of course on the specific … Read More
