Lattice sensAI Delivers 10X Performance Boost for Low Power, Smart IoT Devices at the Edge

Sponsored by Businesswire

Semiconductor Corporation
 (NASDAQ: LSCC), the low power programmable
leader, today announced major performance and design flow enhancements
for its award-winning Lattice sensAI™ solutions stack. The Lattice
sensAI stack provides a comprehensive hardware and software solution for
implementing low power (1mW-1W), always-on artificial intelligence (AI)
functionality in smart devices operating at the Edge.

IHS forecasts 40 billion devices will be operating at the network Edge
by 2025. For reasons including latency, network bandwidth limitations,
and data privacy, OEMs designing always-on Edge devices want to minimize
sending data to the Cloud for analytics. Lattice sensAI enables such
OEMs to seamlessly update their existing designs with low power AI
inferencing optimized for their application requirements. Incorporating
such local intelligence also lowers expenses related to Cloud-based
analytics by only sending relevant data for further processing.

“At Pixcellence, our expertise is in developing image processing and
computer vision solutions with industry-first features like color night
vision. Interest in the IoT is fueling demand for smart cameras that
support AI applications like presence detection or facial recognition,”
said Seton P. Kasmir, CEO, Pixcellence, Inc. “However, smart cameras
have strict power consumption and cost requirements that make it a
challenge to use off-the-shelf ASSPs. The Lattice sensAI solutions stack
lets us easily add low power, flexible AI inference support to our
existing and new camera designs, and get our value-added products to
market faster.”

“Our sensAI stack was developed to address the growing need for Edge
devices with AI support, and we’re encouraged by the market’s response
to our solution,” said Deepak Boppana, Senior Director of Segment and
Solutions Marketing, Lattice Semiconductor. “In addition to the multiple
industry awards received by sensAI, it is exciting to see the broader
partner ecosystem and customers developing low power sensAI-based
solutions for always-on IoT devices such as smart doorbells and security

New enhancements to the Lattice sensAI solution stack include:

  • 10x performance boost over previous version – driven by an updated CNN
    IP and neural network compiler with features like 8-bit activation
    quantization, smart layer merging and a dual-DSP engine
  • Seamless user experience – accelerates the design cycle with several
    new features including:

    • Expanding neural network and ML frameworks support including Keras
    • Support for quantization and fraction setting schemes for neural
      network training eliminates iterative post-processing
    • Simple neural network debugging via USB
    • New customizable reference designs accelerate time to market for
      popular use cases like object counting and presence detection
  • A growing design service partner ecosystem, including full product
    design capability from partners such as Pixcellence, makes it easier
    for customers to get to market faster.
