Gyrfalcon Technology debuts Laceli AI Compute Stick with compact dimension, 4GB free storage space



Gyrfalcon Technology, an emerging AI chip maker in Silicon Valley, launched Monday its Laceli AI Compute Stick after Intel Movidius announced its deep learning Neural Compute Stick in July last year. With the company’s initial ultra-low power, high performance AI processor Lightspeeur 2801S, the Laceli AI Compute Stick runs a 2.8 TOPS performance within 0.3 watt of power, which is 90 times more efficient than the Movidius USB Stick (0.1 TOPS within 1 watt of power.)

Powered by a specialized AI Processor, Laceli can be used in many smart applications such as image and video recognition, natural speech understanding, natural language processing, and day-to-day AI applications.

The Laceli AI Compute Stick will be shown at the upcoming CES 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Lightspeeur is based on Gyrfalcon’s APiM architecture, which uses memory as the AI processing unit. This eliminates the huge data movement that results in high power consumption. The architecture features true, on-chip parallelism, in situ computing, and eliminates memory bottlenecks. It has roughly 28,000 parallel computing cores and does not require external memory for AI inference.

The standard USB 3.0 Stick can be connected to a range of devices such as PCs, laptops and mobile phones, and can enhance their image-based deep learning capabilities to unprecedented levels without them having to tap into a cloud based system.

With Caffe and TensorFlow support, the Stick enables various application development backgrounds.

Lightspeeur 2810S is in production at the moment, and available to qualified customers.
