Katana Low Power Edge AI

Intelligence for
Battery-powered Edge Sensors

Ultra-Low Power AI SoC

Synaptics’ processing platforms bring intelligence to the edge by enabling energy-efficient AI endpoint solutions that can make autonomous decisions from data collected by vision and audio sensing. It provides ultra-low power per inference in a flexible, easy to use AI platform. Our highly integrated edge AI SoCs are designed for battery powered wireless devices equipped with audio or camera capabilities for consumer and industrial IoT applications.

Optimized for a wide range of ultra-low power AI use cases, our processors are used in edge devices for office buildings, retail, factories, warehouses, robotics, farms and smart homes, and cities. They scale across a wide range of energy constrained IoT applications, and are particularly well-suited for retrofitting, use in remote locations, outdoors and for infrastructure level deployment.

Features & Benefits

  • IoT Connectivity
    Synaptics’ Wi-Fi and Bluetooth ultra low-power connectivity solutions are the most robust in the industry. Their interoperability in IoT products have been proven over many years and millions of product deployments.
  • Open Industry-Standard Developer Tools
    Our AI development tools allow model development and optimization. They are also compatible with industry-standard frameworks such as TensorFlow, TensorFlow Lite and others, allowing importing and optimization from those frameworks.
  • Optimized Architecture
    Katana contains a heterogenous hexa-core architecture. Each core is highly optmized for specialized tasks such as neural network image processing, audio/voice processing, control tasks and others.
  • Ultra-Low Power
    Katana has unprecedented power efficiency that is a result of the combination of heterogenous specialized cores, optimized tools and a sophisticated dynamic voltage and frequency scaling mechanism.
