As Featured In

UP AI CORE X is a complete product line of neural network accelerators for edge devices. Whether the automation you are creating is for identifying and tallying items in a shopping cart, alerting airport security to unattended luggage, or monitoring traffic congestion ahead of an autonomous vehicle, the AI CORE X let’s you embed the real-time computational power you need directly where you need it.

Step Out of the Rain

Cloud computing is great for many things, but not for real-time edge applications with tight latency, bandwidth, security, and reliability constraints. Sometimes, the only solution is to co-locate the processing of data with the collection of data. This means no cloud computing. Thankfully, the skies are clearing. With up to four trillion operations per second (TOPS) and a Neural Compute Engine capable of delivering up to one TOPS, all with just a few watts of power, AI CORE X is perfect for doing the heavy lifting in any edge application.
