Syntiant Corp., a turnkey deep learning technology company advancing AI processing at the edge, today announced that Seoul-based Tekro Inc. will serve as its sales agent in South Korea. The company also announced that it will be demonstrating its low-power Syntiant Core 1™ and Syntiant Core 2™ neural network inference engines at AI World Congress 2021 (Exhibition Center 2, Hall 4, D12), being held at the BEXCO Exhibition Center in Busan Metropolitan City, September 1-2.
“Tekro’s deep experience in semiconductors, along with its unparalleled engineering, marketing, and logistics support, will help us further expand our presence in South Korea,” said Kurt Busch, CEO of Syntiant. “Our Core technology enables developers to easily design and deploy any type of low-power AI application at the edge, whether it is customized wake words for earbuds and mobile phones, or audio event classification such as glass-breaking models for the home, or condition-based sensor monitoring for smart manufacturing. Syntiant is highly focused on making edge AI a reality, bringing new capabilities to even the smallest products while increasing privacy, reliability, and responsiveness.”
Syntiant has shipped more than 15 million of its Neural Decision Processors™ (NDPs) to customers across the globe. The NDPs have been designed into a wide range of consumer and industrial use cases, from earbuds to automobiles. Purpose-built by applying a clean sheet, hardware/software co-design methodology, Syntiant’s devices typically offer more than 100x performance improvement over current low-power MCU solutions to enable larger, more functional networks at significantly lower power.
