AIS. AI-in-Sensor. No digitizing. No latency. No distortion. No bus. No power -- almost. No problem.

AIS. AI-in-Sensor. No digitizing. No latency . No distortion. No bus. No power -- almost. No problem.

A storm is coming. AIStorm presents its AI-in-Sensor SoCs…

Sensors are not digital devices. To convert sensor information into a digital representation takes time, power, silicon, and adds distortion & noise. AIS solutions can be finished processing before the competition even has enough digital information to begin. So why not skip the middle man and consider our SoCs for your next project?

HIGHEST PERFORMANCE

Our patented charge domain technology guarantees a high performance, fully integrated SoC that you can’t find anywhere else.

 

LOWEST POWER

Because we don’t have to digitize sensor information, we offer the lowest power usage for performance in the industry.

LOW COST

We pass cost savings onto you by eliminating energy-intensive GPUs and DSPs so that you can focus on making your next project even better.

Technology

We’ve all heard about process in memory. Why stop there?

The sensors are the system's eyes, ears and fingers. Sensors can focus on what we care about and ignore the rest – a face, another car, an intruder, a sound, a change...

Event-driven digital just isn’t & memory needs something to remember. Consider an image sensor watching a warehouse. Only a few pixels are involved with the area around a door in the far corner where an intruder might enter.

So the system has to poll, or incorporate some complicated handshake scheme with the processing system to try to work out where to focus. No matter how it is done it is slow and complicated. So why bother? Now consider a camera scanning faces at an intersection. Distractions abound… cars, trees, clouds, winds, rain, snow, debris blowing by. How is a digital system going to deal with that with all those ADCs and handshakes going on?

AIS technology SKIPS digitization and moves directly to processing

AIS technology is analog and mixed signal technology, but it's more than that. For the first time the sensor itself is smart enough to deal with events, make decisions and can perform complex analysis…often before the other guy even receives his digital sensor representation to start processing.

Imagine a smart car braking faster; or a camera lasting years on a single battery; biometric login by small wearable devices like watches, bands and glasses. AIS has the power to enable new technologies like handset gesture control, heart-based security, through screen image sensors and advanced machine vision.
