The ecosystem to correctly embody various innovative ideas, and quickly judge and industrialize the market value of the ideas is becoming the driving force for developed countries including the US to lead the way in creating new markets. In order to realize this ecosystem, a creative industrial paradigm should be accompanied, escaping from the traditional methods, and the fundamental keywords that enable this paradigm are the very ‘collaboration’ and ‘open source hardware’.
The NM500 is a neuromorphic chip opening new frontiers for smart sensors, IOT, machine learning and cognitive computing. Its neurons can learn and recognize patterns extracted from any data sources such as images, audio waveform, bio signals, text and more, with orders of magnitude less energy and complexity than modern microprocessors. NM500 neurons are especially suitable to cope with ill-defined and fuzzy data, high variability of context and even novelty detection. Last, but not least, the NM500 is a Wafer Level Package (64 WLP) which can be easily assembled into a network from thousands to millions of neurons, or integrated into an application-specific multi-chip module or 3D stack.
