AI Quantizer

By converting the 32-bit floating-point weights and activations to fixed-point like INT8, the AI Quantizer can reduce the computing complexity without losing prediction accuracy. The fixed-point network model requires less memory bandwidth, thus providing faster speed and higher power efficiency than the floating-point model.

AI Compiler

Maps the AI model to a high-efficient instruction set and data flow. Also performs sophisticated optimizations such as layer fusion, instruction scheduling, and reuses on-chip memory as much as possible.

AI Profiler

The performance profiler allows programmers to perform an in-depth analysis of the efficiency and utilization of your AI inference implementation.

AI Library

The runtime provides a lightweight set of C++ and Python APIs. enabling easy application development. It also provides efficient task scheduling, memory management, and interrupt handling.
