AI Platform Empowers Smart Edge Devices

March 18, 2024
BrainChip's Akida Edge AI Box features a quad-core CPU platform plus AI accelerators.

BrainChip announced that it will be accepting pre-orders of Akida Edge AI Box, intended to accelerate high-performance artificial-intelligence (AI) applications at the edge. It's especially well-suited for use in challenging environments, where energy efficiency is essential and cloud connectivity is uncertain.

Built in collaboration with VVDN Technologies, the Akida Edge AI Box addresses the demanding needs of a variety of smart-city, automotive, transportation, and industrial applications.

The device combines a quad-core CPU platform with Akida AI accelerators to boost AI performance. The lightweight Edge box is compact, cost-effective, and versatile with built-in Ethernet and Wi-Fi connectivity, HD display support, expandable storage, and USB interfaces.

The initial set of AI applications that will run out of the box is being finalized by BrainChip and VVDN. The box can be customized for applications and users without the need for cloud support to enhance privacy and security.

"The Akida Edge AI Box is ideally suited to provide the low latency and high throughput processing with ultra-low power consumption—a necessity for the next generation of smart edge devices," said Sean Hehir, CEO of BrainChip. "We are excited to officially launch pre-orders of the Akida Edge AI Box and bring this groundbreaking technology to market to empower customers in developing and deploying intelligent, secure, and customized devices and services for multi-sensor environments in real-time."
