Arm® Based CPUs with Lightspeeur™ 2803 AI Accelerator Chips provides an Edge Inferencing AI Accelerator Subsystem Offering High Performance Combined with Very Low Energy Use
Milpitas, California (December 19th, 2019) – Gyrfalcon Technology Inc. (GTI) announces a new system offering for upgrading data centers to have very high performance inferencing, but using extremely low energy. The Lacelli™ AI Server is an “AI Acceleration Subsystem” for Edge Inferencing, which can bring extremely high performing artificial intelligence to public and corporate datacenter operations.
The server backplane includes 5 Arm® based intelligent switch processors and onboard DDRs within a 2U, 19 inch rack mountable chassis which includes a twin type fan for cooling. Those processors provide efficient peer-to-peer links between the AI modules within the chassis, as well coordinating communication between the server and external clusters of servers in the same data center. The server chassis can accommodate up to 32 AI Modules, each module containing 4 Lightspeeur™ 2803 accelerator chips mounted on PCIe Gen2 x4 cards paired with an Arm® based core and having a dedicated own slot and port. Each AI Module delivers 1,200 FPS while drawing only 5 Watts of power for a performance to energy usage ratio of 240 FPS/W. Fully loaded, the server would deliver an astounding 38,400 FPS, with only 1.8 mS of latency.
Delivering Edge Inferencing AI Acceleration
Whether used in the datacenter of a large services provider, or on campus for a large or medium corporation, the Lacelli™ Edge Inferencing Server can incorporate audio, visual or sensor inputs to execute artificial intelligence for a diverse range of applications:
- Object detection, classification & identification
- Visual analysis
- Natural language processing
- Voice command, recognitions & authentication
- Face detection & recognition
- Image style transfer & super resolution
- Image & video search, encoding, captioning, segmentation & enhancement
Many use cases are ideal for the Lacelli™ Server:
- Machine vision
- Unmanned stores & warehouses
- Smart cities & buildings
- Business intelligence
- Artificial intelligence of things
“With this new server product, we truly open the door for many new kinds of customers” Said Dr. Yasuo Nishiguchi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Gyrfalcon Technology Japan. “Collaborating within our ecosystem we can achieve new levels of performance, and continue to deliver with low energy use for many types of datacenter opportunities.”
The Lacelli server was developed by GTI Japan, which is already being tested by tier one operators and service providers. GTI will be introducing the server to customers worldwide in 2020 and demonstrating it live at CES2020 in January.
