Flex Logix develops industry-leading AI inference engines and we are the #1 provider of eFPGA solutions. Our InferX X1 is the industry’s fastest and most-efficient AI edge inference accelerator that brings AI to high-volume applications, surpassing competitor’s performance at 1/7th size and much lower price. InferX X1 is available as a chip, PCIe board and M.2 board. InferX X1 is working and running YOLOv3 today and starts production shipments this summer. Our Inference Compiler is easy to use (we take in neural network models in TensorFlowLite and ONNX) and our APIs for Infer X1 allow rapid integration by the customer. Our architecture is covered by dozens of patents and is highly differentiated giving us a sustainable competitive advantage.

We recently completed a $55M funding round.
