Event-driven camera module for smartphones

iniVation and aiCTX announce Speck, world’s first low-power neuromorphic SoC for mobile and IoT applications. Speck is a fully event-driven neuromorphic chip, combining a vision sensor with a convolutional neural network processor, packaged in a single chip. Speck is aimed to applications requiring always-on, real-time response at extremely low power budgets.

Event-based vision is a perfect match for our event-based convolutional network processing architecture,” adds Ning Qiao, CEO of aiCTX. “By putting our processor as close to the sensor as possible, we can provide an ultra-low-power, low-cost solution for vision in mobile and embedded applications.”

Samples of Speck devices will be available starting in Q3 2019.

Speck is the world’s first complete, single-chip, intelligent neuromorphic vision system for mobile and IoT applications.
It performs intelligent scene analysis at micropower levels with real-time response.
