Lattice Semiconductor Demo of Low-power Hardware and Software Face Detection Implementations

Deepak Boppana, Senior Director of Product and Segment Marketing at Lattice Semiconductor, demonstrates the company's latest embedded vision technologies and products at the January 2018 Consumer Electronics Show. Specifically, Boppana demonstrates face detection running on the world’s smallest FPGAs, iCE40 UltraPlus, with power consumption in the range of milliwatts.

Lattice's software approach consumes under 5 milliwatts, while its BNN implementation in hardware consumers under 1 milliwatt of power, which is great for mobile applications. In addition, see how the low power iCE40 UltraPlus FPGA performs edge computing applications locally on a device, sending metadata to the cloud using LoRa with milliwatts of power consumption.

Here you’ll find a wealth of practical technical insights and expert advice to help you bring AI and visual intelligence into your products without flying blind.
