IP Vendors Roll Out Multicore Deep-Learning Accelerators
By Mike Demler (October 7, 2019)
The rapid adoption of machine learning is driving IP vendors to compete by scaling up performance in each new generation of licensable deep-learning accelerators (DLAs).
Last year, DLAs integrating up to 4,096 multiply-accumulate (MAC) units per core set the standard for licensable inference engines.
But advanced driver assistance systems (ADASs) and other high-performance edge devices demand even greater performance, so with their latest products, Ceva and Synopsys aim to shatter that mark.
