Accomplished Milestones

DEC. 2019

Introduced Novatek's first large TFT sensor ROIC for LCD in-display solution.

Developed RNN deep learning accelerator for audio AI applications.  Capable of running LSTM and GRU models, this accelerator can speed up the execution and reduce the run time and power consumption.  Deployment software and driver are also developed to form a complete solution together with the accelerator.  This accelerator can be applied to TV, dash cam, and IP cameras.

Developed Network Architecture Search (NAS) AI algorithms to compress AI models.  Based on MIT HAQ (Hardware-aware Automatic Quantization) algorithm, it can reduce the bitwidth of the ResNet50 weights down to 3~5 bit while still maintaining the inference accuracy.  This technique can be applied to IP cameras.

Upgrade the features of AI tool to enhance the compatibility with Tensorflow, Caffe, and ONNX.  Integrated ARM Compute Library (ACL) in the AI tool to speed up AI computation when falling back to CPU.
