GAP8 processor: MCU-class energy consumption with AI capabilities2021-07-26T14:51:50+02:00

GAP8 is an IoT application processor that enables massive deployment of low-cost, battery operated intelligent devices that capture, analyse, classify and act on fusion of rich data sources such images, sounds, radar signatures and vibrations.

GAP8 is uniquely optimized to execute a large spectrum of image and audio algorithms including convolution neural network inference and signal processing with extreme energy efficiency.

By enabling autonomous operation GAP8 dramatically reduces deployment and operating costs of a wide range of intelligent edge devices.
