EYYES introduces Layer Processing Unit (LPU)
The ground-breaking concept allows significantly more computation operations simultaneously, thus achieving the same performance at much lower frequencies. As a consequence, memory requirements to store temporary computational results are reduced a lot compared to GPU and TPU.
With the RTI 3.0 EYYES offers the first SOM board working on an LPU unit in a FPGA achieving up to 20 TOPS on a module just 7×6 cm in size, outperforming well known manufacturers while consuming much less power.
Future applications of this at the edge piece of technology are countless, covering a wide field of object detection within safety critical environments (robotics, production, vehicles of all kind), traffic environments, blind spot assistance systems, front collision warning as well as ADAS and lane tracking.
EYYES (formerly AVI Systems), headquartered in Gedersdorf near Krems, is a pioneer in the field of customized hardware and software developments of highly secure systems for traffic and industry. From simulation, prototype phase to serial production – the EYYES research and development team is the guarantor for flexible and perfect Safe Artificial Intelligence solutions. Founded in 2013, the company operates at three locations in Austria (Krems) and Germany (Aachen and Freital) with a total of more than 30 employees. For the intelligent, functionally safe sensor solutions for highly technical mobility and industrial solutions, EYYES cooperates with top international research institutes such as AIT, Software Competence Center Hagenberg and Fraunhofer Institute.
