ArchiTek Intelligence Pixel Engine

The ArchiTek Intelligence Pixel Engine (aIPE) is a programmable local space imaging and image processing engine that combines a custom hardware architecture with innovative software flexibility. Using virtual engine technology, the aIPE is optimized for low-power consumption with low latency performance, to provide a versatile and affordable AI solution. Low power, high-performance silicon for computer vision and AI algorithms can be used in autonomous vehicles, security cameras, cybersecurity systems, robotics, and data centers.


With local support from official SiFive partner DTS-Insight, ArchiTek selected SiFive Core IP and SiFive Core Designer to develop the next-generation aIPE SoC. Optimized to ArchiTek's workload requirements via SiFive's web-based Core Designer tool, ArchiTek will leverage the power of custom-configured RISC-V based processor cores to maximize the performance of the aIPE engine. 

"The superior performance, power, and area delivered by SiFive Core IP made the choice for the next-generation aIPE SoC simple," said Shuichi Takada, President and CTO  at ArchiTek Corporation. "We have great confidence in selecting SiFive over competitor or legacy providers due to the rich heritage of SiFive, as leading commercial provider of RISC-V IP, combined with the local technical support of DTS-Insight to ensure success. "

"I am very excited to see SiFive Core IP enabling the design of new AI processors," said Naveed Sherwani, President and CEO of SiFive. "The migration of deep learning out of the data center is driving the need for configurable solutions. SiFive is uniquely positioned to enable domain-specific solutions with silicon-proven IP."

Connect with ArchiTek Corporation at the Embedded Technology & IoT Technology Conference 2019, in Yokohama, Japan, from Nov. 20 to 22.
