"Our patented hardware architecture is combined with our fully customizable algorithms based on both CNN and SNNs to perform machine learning inferencing in hundreds of microwatts," said Nara Srinivasa CTO of Eta Compute, in a statement. "These are being sampled to customers who are integrating them into products such as smart speakers and object detection platforms to deliver machine intelligence to the network edge."
Eta Compute classifies its Tensai MCU as an "edge device" claiming it can support full applications in a single device and differentiates it from some competition that are designed to be part of multiple compment node solutions.
