EYYES at AI for Semiconductors
As keynote speaker at the Applied AI in Semiconductors Conference (AAIC for short) on June 17, 2021, CEO Johannes Traxler presented a talk on the paradigm shift in AI and ML Chip Architecture (“It’s time for a new paradigm in AI and ML Chip Architecture”), centering on the newly developed EYYES LPU (Layer Processing Unit).
The revolutionary LPU chip design developed by EYYES caused an international sensation. Compared to GPUs and TPUs, the unit enables significantly more parallel computing operations per clock cycle and thus higher performance with lower power requirements. Consequently, memory requirements are reduced as well, because the new technology can compute complete neural layers in a single clock cycle.

With the RTI 3.0, EYYES also presented the first System on Module (SOM), in which the LPU unit in an FPGA of a board measuring only 7×7 cm calculates a remarkable 18 tops, eclipsing comparable products from well-known manufacturers while consuming much less energy.
The RTI 3.0 and the LPU used in it represent a major step towards energy-efficient high-performance AI. Hence, future application areas are enormously diverse and include in particular video processing with object recognition for safety environments (robots, production, vehicles), blind spot information systems, traffic monitoring, front collision as well as ADAS and lane keeping systems.
