Perceive to Deliver Data Center-Class Accuracy at Ultra-Low Power for Consumer Devices

Perceive Corporation, an edge inference solutions company, has launched the company and debuted its first product, the ErgoTM edge inference processor, the company said.

Ergo brings breakthrough accuracy and performance to consumer devices such as security cameras, smart appliances, and mobile phones. The Ergo chip and reference board are currently being sampled to customers and are ready for mass production in the second quarter of 2020.

In an environment where consumers are demanding greater security and privacy, Ergo removes the need to send sensor data from devices to the cloud for analysis. Ergo´s real-time, on-device inference processing makes it ideally suited for devices where consumer experience and privacy of data such as video and audio are of paramount importance.

Whether it is reducing false notifications in a security camera, extending battery life in a mobile device, or simplifying the user interface of a home appliance, Ergo improves key device features by enabling comprehension and intelligent reactions to surroundings–without compromising consumer security.

Perceive was incubated by and is a majority-owned subsidiary of Xperi Corporation (Nasdaq: XPER), a provider of audio, imaging and semiconductor technology focused on creating innovative solutions for smart devices that enable extraordinary experiences for people around the world.

Along with the Ergo inference chip, Perceive is providing a complete solution to OEMs, including reference boards, as well as standard imaging and audio inferencing applications for common inferencing tasks.

Customers can also tune the applications or create novel applications with support from Perceive. Recognized leaders in the connected camera and security industry have already selected Ergo to integrate advanced neural network applications into their future products.

Perceive develops breakthrough neural network inference solutions that push the performance-accuracy-power envelope, while protecting the security and privacy of consumers. For more information, visit https://www.perceive.io.
