Syntiant Corp., a deep learning chip technology company advancing AI pervasiveness in edge devices, today announced that it has been named a CES 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree for its Syntiant NDP120 Neural Decision Processor (NDP).
The award was revealed during CES 2021’s Media Day on CES.tech and honors outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products.
The Syntiant NDP120 is the company’s latest generation of special purpose chips for audio and sensor processing for always-on applications in battery-powered devices. Packaged with the Syntiant Core 2, a highly flexible, ultra-low-power deep neural network inference engine, the NDP120 can run multiple applications simultaneously at under 1mW (milliwatt), including echo-cancellation, beamforming, noise suppression, speech enhancement, speaker identification, keyword spotting, multiple wake words, event detection, and local commands recognition.
“We are thrilled that our technology continues to be recognized by CTA in the embedded technologies category,” said Kurt Busch, CEO at Syntiant. “We believe our deep learning solutions will be the technology that bridges the gap between people and machines, and ultimately better connect people with people.”
Syntiant’s NDP120 enables low-power AI processing in all types of consumer tech products, including smartphones, earbuds, virtual assistants, laptops, home entertainment and security devices. The NDP120 also supports multi-sensor fusion, passive infrared detection, as well as accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer and pressure sensing applications.
This is the second year in a row Syntiant has received an Innovation Award. The company was recognized as a CES 2020 Best of Innovation Awards Honoree for its Syntiant NDP100 microwatt-power Neural Decision Processor.
