Compact quad-AMP PCIe card for high-performance edge AI applications

17 November 2021

Artificial intelligence (AI) processor company Mythic has unveiled its new MP10304 peripheral component interconnect express (PCIe) card, which features four M1076 Mythic Analog Matrix Processors (AMPs), delivering up to 100 tera operations per second (TOPs) of AI performance and supporting up to 320 million weights for complex AI workloads at less than 25 W of power. The combination of high-performance and power-efficiency in a compact form factor makes the MP10304 PCIe card ideal for edge AI applications in video security, commercial drones and product inspection in manufacturing.

The MP10304 PCIe card can be configured to run large deep neural network (DNN) models utilizing the combined AI compute of all four AMPs for high-definition camera applications that need to detect smaller objects with minimal or no downscaling, for example in commercial drones and physical security. The Source: MythicSource: MythicMP10304 can also run a set of smaller DNN models for applications that process and analyze independent video streams concurrently from multiple cameras, such as network video recorders (NVRs).

Integrating four M1076 AMPs, the MP10304 PCIe card offers four times the performance of each M1076, packaged in a compact half-height, half-length PCIe card, offering an unparalleled combination of performance and power-efficiency for embedded edge AI applications. With the MP10304, complex AI networks can be deployed in edge appliance and NVRs to ingest video data from many cameras in the field, and complex networks can be deployed at high resolution for applications requiring high accuracy. Mythic currently supports object detection, classification and low-latency human body pose estimation. Other popular models such as depth estimation and image segmentation will be available soon.
