AI chip firm DeepX is planning to launch four neural processing unit (NPU) chips during the third quarter of 2022, TheElec has learned.

The chips, model named Genesis, are aimed at edge device, autonomous driving and data center applications, people familiar with the matter said.

DeepX will use Samsung’s 5-nanometer (nm) foundry service for the chips. Gaonchips, a design solution partner to Samsung Foundry that mostly handle autonomous driving and AI chips, will be the design house for the chips.

The NPUs boast high power efficiency __ they can perform at over 10TOPS per watt.

This is five times the performance of NPU currently used by Tesla which performs at 2TOPS per watt, one of the people said.

NPUs are AI accelerators that usually process data in parallel to increase efficiency. 

They are optimized for their task, so are more power efficient and offer better performance than GPUs, which have been widely used in AI.

DeepX was founded in 2018 by CEO Kim Dong-won, who took part in Apple’s development of their A11 Bionic chip.
