Website Flex Logix

Flex Logix has finished the hardware design and is fabricating it’s first Inference Accelerator CoProcessor, InferX X1, which is based on our nnMAX Inference IP. We will have chips and PCIe boards this summer. Our software team is preparing our Inference Model Compiler to be ready to run deep neural
network models on X1.

We have begun architecting the follow-on chip. InferX has industry-best inference efficiency: more inference throughput per $ and per watt. We excel on larger models and megapixel images, but can run any neural network.


Part of the small but excellent team responsible for our nnMAX Model Compiler: a DNN Model-to-binary flow:

– Expanding functionality of our Model Compiler, written in modern C++, for support of additional capabilities, in particular:
– Parsing of TensorflowLite/ONNX/other DNN model description languages to our internal model format
– Mapping of required computations from DNN model in TFLite/ONNX to Verilog RTL code, running on EFLX eFPGA inside nnMAX chip.

This is a software developer role but you need to understand computer architecture and digital logic, as Model Compiler produces Verilog code for eFPGA, which controls nnMAX computational blocks and
memory connections.
