Chinese fabless semiconductor company Unisoc has licenced Imagination Technologies’ latest generation of neural network accelerator (NNA), IMG Series3NX for use in future system-on-chips (SoCs) targeting mid-high range mobile devices, TV and other markets.

Previously, Unisoc had integrated Imagination’s Series2NX AI core into its mobile platform, leading to benchmark leading performance.

The IMG Series3NX is the fastest, most power-efficient embedded solution for hardware acceleration of neural networks in the market, claims Imagination. Providing an unrivalled level of scalability, Series3NX enables SoC manufacturers to optimise compute power and performance across a range of embedded markets such as automotive, mobile, smart surveillance and IoT edge devices. Thanks to architectural enhancements, including lossless weight compression, the Series3NX architecture benefits from a 40% boost in performance in the same silicon area over the previous generation, giving SoC manufacturers a nearly 60% improvement in performance efficiency and a 35% reduction in bandwidth.

“Unisoc has already shown that they are a leader in neural network acceleration in mobile, and we are excited they are taking our technology into the 5G market space”, said Steve Evans, executive vice president PowerVR Product, Imagination Technologies.
