Elektronik Article: Ultra Low Power Processor With RISC-V IoT Processor For AI Applications

By February 19, 2019May 12th, 2021No Comments

RISC-V allows users to extend the instruction set with special instructions for vector processing. For example, to achieve high computing performance, as required for neural networks. Combined with dynamic energy management, this creates a KI-IoT processor for battery operation.

What would happen if IoT sensors and devices began to process information-rich signals such as sounds, vibrations and images – that’s what we started getting interested in in 2016. Back then, IoT sensors typically produced only a small amount of data: temperature or humidity, or just the state of a digital signal.
The first deployments of IoT wireless sensors had shown the importance of battery operation. Without a very long battery life, the operating costs of a wireless sensor have quickly destroyed many potential business models. To meet the increasing demand for energy-saving techniques, several Low Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) wireless technologies such as Sigfox, LoRa and LTE Cat NB1 (NB-IOT) have been developed.
