Mythic Expands Product Lineup with Analog Matrix Processor for Edge AI Applications
June 09, 2021
Mythic introduced its new M1076 Analog Matrix Processor (Mythic AMP).
To address a range of designs, the M1076 AMP comes in several form factors: a standalone processor, an ultra-compact PCIe M.2 card, and a PCIe card with up to 16 AMPs. Per the company, the M1076 AMP can support up to 25 TOPS of AI compute in a 3W power envelope, consuming up to 10x less power than a typical SoC or GPU solution. In a 16-chip configuration, the M1076 AMP PCIe card delivers up to 400 TOPs of AI compute while consuming only 75W. The M1076 AMP has been optimized to scale from edge endpoints to server applications, addressing vertical markets including smart cities, industrial applications, enterprise applications, and consumer devices.
The M1076 AMP offers performance and power-efficiency that is integrated into an compact 22mm x 30mm PCIe M.2 A+E Key card for space-constrained embedded edge AI applications. For edge AI systems that require more demanding workloads – including many streams, multiple large, deep neural networks, and higher resolutions and frame rates – a PCIe card form-factor with 16 Mythic AMPs supporting up to 400 TOPS and 1.28 billion weights in a 75W power profile can be utilized.
The M1076 AMP is suitable for video analytics workloads including object detection, classification, and depth estimation for industrial machine vision, autonomous drones, surveillance cameras, and network video recorders (NVRs) applications. The M1076 AMP can also support AR/VR applications with low latency human body pose estimation for future smart fitness, gaming, and collaborative robotics devices.
Mythic also announced it has raised $70 million in Series C funding, bringing the company's total funding to $165.2 million. With this new round of funding the company will focus on scaling up the production of the company's solutions, investing in its technology roadmap, and increasing support for the company's growing customer base across APAC, Europe, and the U.S.
ME1076 PCIe M.2 A+E Key and MM1076 PCIe M.2 M Key cards are available for evaluation beginning in July 2021.
