Maxim Integrated Teams with Aizip to Provide Lowest-Power IoT Person Detection
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) and Aizip Inc., a company focused on artificial intelligence (AI) for applications in the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that Maxim Integrated's MAX78000 neural-network microcontroller detects people in an image using Aizip's Visual Wake Words (VWW) model at just 0.7 millijoules (mJ) of energy per inference. This is 100 times lower than conventional software solutions, and the most economical and efficient IoT person-detection solution available. The low-power network provides longer operation for battery-powered IoT systems that require human-presence detection, including building energy management and smart security cameras.
Maxim's chip solutions and Aizip's AI models are important developments that will enable many exciting IoT applications.
The MAX78000 low-power, neural-network accelerated microcontroller executes AI inferences at less than 1/100th the energy of conventional software solutions to dramatically improve run-time for battery-powered edge AI applications. The mixed precision VWW network is part of the Aizip Intelligent Vision Deep Neural Network (AIV DNN) series for image and video applications and was developed with Aizip's proprietary design automation tools to achieve greater than 85 percent human-presence accuracy.
