A software-first approach to edge AI processing

General-purpose processing cores - CPUs and GPUs - provide developers with flexibility for most applications. However, these general purpose cores don’t match up well with workloads found in deep neural networks. EdgeCortix began with a mission in mind: redefining edge AI processing from the ground up.

With EdgeCortix technology including a full-stack AI inference software development environment, run-time reconfigurable edge AI inference IP, and edge AI chips for boards and systems, designers can deploy near cloud-level AI performance at the edge. Think about what that can do for these and other applications.
