MediaTek announced the i350, a highly integrated Edge AI platform with a dedicated APU (AI processor) and digital signal processor (DSP) for AIoT products that require vision and voice edge processing. The i350 brings powerful Edge AI processing to applications with capabilities such as facial, object, gesture and motion recognition, license plate recognition (LPR), voice activation and speed recognition.
Henry Yeh, AGM of AIoT BU said, “With the increasing popularity of vision and voice AIoT applications, brands are looking for highly integrated solutions like the i350 that speed up development time and support a wide range of multimedia and connectivity options. The i350 platform delivers powerful Edge AI processing with extremely low power consumption for the next generation of smart home, commercial and industrial applications”.
The i350 Edge AI platform is designed with energy-efficient 14nm process and incorporates a dedicated APU and DSP to deliver power efficient Edge AI processing. The i350 is an ideal platform for smart appliances, smart access, vending machines, kiosks and point of sales (POS) systems in retail and commercial settings with its support for high definition displays with touch interfaces.
MediaTek’s i350 integrates a 2GHz quad-core Arm Cortex-53 CPU and a Arm Mali-G52 GPU. The i350 supports HD cameras up to 13MP, and fast video encoding using HEVC at Full HD @ 60fps for next generation applications that need detailed and reliable image and video capture capabilities. Also, the platform makes it easier for companies to develop innovative applications for devices powered by the i350 with its support for common APIs via OpenGL ES, OpenCL and Vulkan.
Mediatek i350 supports Wi-Fi 5, Bluetooth 5, GNSS and FM radio for connectivity. The platform also offers range of memory and flash options to help original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) reduce bill of materials (BOM) costs and meet performance requirements. The i350 chipset empowers the AIoT ecosystem to develop innovative applications that leverage this platform’s AI capabilities.
