using the Syntiant Core 2™ programmable deep learning architecture, NDP200 is designed natively run deep neural networks (DNN) on a variety of architectures, such as CNN, RNN, and fully connected networks, and it performs vision processing with highly accurate inference at under 1mW.  

NDP200 brings a level of ML performance that delivers 25x the tensor throughput than the Syntiant Core 1™ found in the Syntiant NDP100™ that are currently shipping in high volume. A programmable Tensilica Hifi3 DSP Is also added for feature extraction and signal processing.
