Axelera AI and Seco are signing a strategic partnership. With this, the companies aim to strengthen the »MetisTM« AI platform developed by Axelera AI. The software is designed to make computer vision applications more accessible, powerful and user-friendly.

With »MetisTM«, Seco says it gains early access to Axelera AI's technology and develops a starter kit and computer module based on it. With the module, Seco is providing high performance AI inferencing at low latency – looking to strengthen its offering to the computer vision application market. Axelera AI is providing its Metis AI Processing Unit (AIPU) with a quad-core architecture as part of the collaboration. The architecture enables the core to execute all layers of a neural network without external interaction and is predestined for edge devices in particular. The architecture delivers up to 214 tera operations per second (TOPS) – the cores can either be combined to increase the throughput of a complex workload, or they can operate independently on the same neural network to reduce latency.

Seco and Axelera AI also aim to deliver a range of complete integrated solutions as part of the collaboration. This will combine Axelera AI's processing unit with Seco's edge computing and edge-to-cloud technologies. Axelera AI will rely on Seco's design experience and expertise in customization for various industries. In addition, the Seco-developed IoT AI platform »Clea« is expected to act as an enabler for deploying existing AI-based models to perform accelerated inference functions directly at the edge and transfer AI-processed data to the cloud for storage or further processing. Clea is also intended to facilitate the introduction of new, service-oriented business models.
