Gyrfalcon Technology has been promoting matrix-based application-specific chips for all forms of AI since offering their production versions of AI accelerator chips in September 2017. Through the licensing of its proprietary technology, the company is confident it can help automakers bring highly competitive AI chips to production for use in vehicles within 18 months, along with significant gains in AI performance, improvements in power dissipation and cost advantages.

One matrix based chip design that replaced a GPU for self-driving AI provided equipment cost reductions and a performance-to-efficiency ratio close to 5 TOPS/W. GTI’s matrix-based AI chips provide 9.3 TOPS/W (Lightspeeur 2801) or 24 TOPS/W (Lightspeeur 2803), which already bring twice to five times the improvement on that ratio.
