Neural Decision Processors 

NDP102 - Always-On Sensor Applications

The Syntiant® NDP architecture is built from the ground up to run deep learning algorithms. Embedded with the Syntiant Core 1™, the NDP102 is a low-power, low-latency device that achieves 100x the efficiency levels of traditional CPUs and DSPs.

The NDP102 runs sensor applications and can operate as a standalone, always-on component of a larger system while consuming less than 100μW of power. The native neural network processing capabilities embedded in the Syntiant Core 1 eliminate the need for intermediate compilers and, works seamlessly with popular machine learning frameworks such as TensorFlow, which greatly reduces time to market and helps assure expected performance.
