indie Semiconductor is investing in AI chip designer Expedera for its ADAS chips.

The strategic minority investment will provide customised versions of the Expedera Origin Neural Processing Unit (NPU) semiconductor intellectual property (IP) to indie for its multi-modal ADAS chips.

Expedera has developed a packet-based AI architecture that enables deterministic performance and efficient power, area and memory resource utilization to on-chip NN processing compared to typical layer-based approaches. The partnership will deliver scalable NPU single-core performance capabilities over 100 TOPS.

“Our mission has always been to deliver best-in-market NPU solutions alongside premier partners, which is why we are so thrilled to welcome this new strategic investment and commercial agreement with indie,” said Da Chuang, co-founder and CEO of Expedera.

“Since its founding in 2018, Expedera has established itself as the best-in-class, field-proven NPU solution provider,” said Donald McClymont, indie co-founder and CEO. “As we examined the AI opportunity within the automotive market, it became apparent that Expedera’s highly innovative solutions are ideally matched to enabling indie’s ADAS portfolio with customized, high-performance neural processing capabilities.”

The minority investment will include adding McClymont to Expedera’s Board of Directors.

Expedera, based in Santa Clara, California, with development centres in Bath, UK as well as  China, Taiwan and Singapore, has seen third-party silicon validated and customer-proven in well over 10 million devices in industrial and consumer markets.;
