Mythic unveils new AI analog matrix processor

09 June 2021

Artificial intelligence (AI) hardware is on the rise with Mythic introducing the M1076 analog matrix processor designed to work with video analytics workloads such as object detection, classification and depth estimation.

The M1076 Mythic AMP processor comes in several form factors: a standalone processor; an ultra-compact PCIe M.2 card; and a PCIe card with up to 16 AMPs. The chip can support up to 25 terra operations per second (TOPS) of AI compute in a 3 W power envelop. It also consumes up to 10 times less power than a typical system-on-chip (SoC) or GPU solution.

In a 16 chip configuration, the M1076 AMP PCIe card delivers up to 400 TOPS of AI compute while consuming 75 W.

The chip could be used for industrial machine vision, autonomous drones, surveillance cameras and network video recorders (NVRs) applications. Additionally, the chip can support augmented and virtual reality applications with low latency human body pose estimation for future smart fitness, gaming and collaborative robotics devices.

Mythic recently raised $70 million in funding to accelerate its plans for mass production of AI hardware chips bringing its total funding of Mythic to $165.2 million.
