CAESAREA, Israel, November 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — POLYN Technology, a fabless semiconductor company offering tiny AI neuromorphic analog signal processing (NASP) chips, and Edge Impulsethe leading embedded machine learning (ML) development platform, have joined forces to develop ultra-low power on-sensor solutions for wearables, hearables and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
The collaboration aims to leverage the NASP platform to enable more customers to develop application-specific chips for one-dimensional sensor-level signal processing. This will help accelerate the adoption of ML at the edge.
“Resource-hungry edge devices represent increasingly complex sound processing, and this is an important challenge to address,” he said Aleksandr Timofeev, Founder and CEO of POLYN. Other challenges include performance, accuracy, and novel abilities. The collaboration between Edge Impulse and POLYN will help vendors solve these issues in next-generation products.”
POLYN’s NASP development framework provides fast and easy conversion of trained neural networks from any known ML library to neuromorphic analog chips. Neural net-to-chip automation tools provide a fully functional simulation of the resulting mathematical model and convert it into chip production files. These unique tools significantly reduce product time-to-market, CAPEX and OPEX redesign.
The unique POLYN business model provides customer support throughout the product development cycle, including neural network selection, training, optimization and software simulation testing. As a result, the size and structure of the neural network is always optimized to the customer’s task, which ensures effective solutions and further investment savings. POLYN’s approach supports the rapid and cost-effective development of custom solutions that perform deep learning computations on mass-market devices.
Edge Impulse machine learning software enables companies to build smarter edge products by providing powerful automation and low-code capabilities to simplify the creation of valuable datasets and the development of advanced ML algorithms. Their technology empowers developers to bring more ML products to market faster, and helps teams quickly develop industry-specific solutions in weeks instead of years.
“We are very excited to be working with POLYN to help promote brand new solutions using our respective technologies,” he said Zach Shelby, CEO and co-founder of Edge Impulse. “The combination of their intellectual property and our platform provides users with opportunities to overcome development challenges while finding valuable new uses for their data.”
POLYN and Edge Impulse initially focus on hearing aids, using POLYN’s unique combination of speech recognition and speech extraction from any environment with power consumption up to 150uW, enabling completely new designs for hearing aids, hearing aid products, earphones and other miniature devices. Additional features including music recognition and processing are available for this range.
