Internet Of Things (IOT)
MediaTek has launched the new i700 the platform, which is an AI chipset that can be used for all things IoT. According to the company, the platform features high-speed edge AI computation that can be used for image recognition, accelerated development of AI-enabled IoT products, and more. The company states that the chipset will be helpful in building smart cities as well. MediaTek states that the i700 platform will start shipping next year to global clients.
The new MediaTek i700 platform features an octa-core CPU that has two Cortex-A75 cores clocked at 2.2GHz and six Cortex-A55 cores clocked at 2.0GHz. The CPU is coupled with the IMG 9XM-HP8 Image Signal Processor, which is clocked at 970MHz. The inbuilt AI processor has dual cores and comes embedded with AI Accelerator as well as AI Face Detection Engine. The AI Engine and the CPU together help the i700 perform AI computations up to five times faster than its predecessor. MediaTek has also made sure that the platform is fully compatible with Google’ s Android Neural Networks API and other frameworks such as TensorFlow, Caffe, TF Lite, etc.
