Inuitive launches NU4100, expanding its Edge AI Vision-on-Chip IC portfolio; NU4100 presents advanced AI capabilities and can stream 2X 4K cameras with Internal advanced ISP
RA'ANANA, Israel, Sept. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire-Asianet/ --

- Geared for Robotics, the new NU4100 is setting a new industry standard by 
combining integrated dual-channel 4K ISP with enhanced AI performance coupled 
with depth-sensing and VSLAM capabilities

    Inuitive Ltd., a Vision-on-Chip processors company, announced today the 
launch of its new NU4100, an expansion of its Vision and AI IC portfolio. Based 
on Inuitive's unique architecture and advanced 12nm process technology, the new 
NU4100 IC supports integrated dual-channel 4K ISP, enhanced AI processing, and 
depth sensing in a single-chip, low-power design, setting the new industry 
standard for Edge-AI performance.

    The NU4100 is the second generation of the NU4x00 series of products. The 
NU4x00 series is ideal for Robotics, Drones, VR, and Edge-AI applications that 
demand multiple sensor aggregation, processing, packing, and streaming. It is 
specifically designed for robots and other applications that must sense and 
analyze the environment using 3, 6, or more cameras, as they make real-time 
actionable decisions based on that input.

    "Robots designers demand higher resolutions, an ever-increasing number of 
channels, and high-performing, enhanced AI and VSLAM capabilities," said Shlomo 
Gadot, Inuitive's CEO. "The NU4100 addition to the Vision-on-Chip series of 
processors is a true revolution, based on all integrated vision capabilities, 
combined in a single, complete-mission computer chip. The integrated 
dual-camera ISP provides much-needed flexibility without having to add more 
components, which, in turn, require additional processing power at a higher 
price point."

    Mr. Gadot also said, "Inuitive is committed to bringing the most advanced 
technology to the market. NU4500, the next processor in our roadmap, is planned 
for tape-out on Q1 2023 with additional 8 cores of ARM A55, more than double 
the AI compute power and H.265 & H.264 video encoder & decoder and is to be the 
ultimate single-chip solution for robotic and applications."

    The new NU4100 supports multi-camera designs and can simultaneously process 
and stream two imager channels of up to 12MP, or 4K resolution, each at 60 
frames per second (fps), while running advanced AI networks. This IC enhances 
the level of integration for products using Inuitive technology and speeds the 
AI processing power by 2X-4X while consuming 20% less power than Inuitive's 
first generation.

    The new NU4100 was quickly adopted by the CE & Metaverse industry leaders, 
already securing it for their market products, instead of any alternatives. 
Customer products powered by NU4100 will be available starting 1Q 2023.

    "Robots are increasingly reliant on vision processors. Their ability to 
perceive and understand the environment is fundamental to achieving a higher 
level of robot autonomy," said Dor Zepeniuk, CTO and VP of Product, Inuitive. 
"Processing streams of input from multiple cameras expand the robot's 
independence and flexibility, while the integrated dual-channel 4K ISP improves 
the system's capabilities. Both, in turn, serve the end goal of designing 
powerful products that are lower on cost."

    Main features and capabilities of the new NU4100 include:

- Proprietary Inuitive Depth Vision Accelerators (IDVA):
    High-throughput, low-latency, depth-from-stereo HW engine
    SLAM HW Accelerators
    General purpose Imaging/Vision engines
- Dual camera ISP unit – up to 12Mp per video stream
- Dual-core Vision-DSP with 384GOPs – optimized for computer vision functions
- Efficient AI Engine with 3.2TOPs processing power for DNN
- ARM Cortex-A5 CPU running Linux OS
- Connectivity for up to 6 Camera devices
- Fast interfaces – USB3.0, MIPI CSI/DSI – Rx & Tx, LPDDR4 and more

    The new high-resolution and advanced AI processing provided by the new IC 
can benefit many other Edge-AI applications. Applications such as Industry 4.0 
facilities can leverage the high Edge-AI performance and image resolution for 
improved process control and a higher level of automation. Likewise, drones can 
use the ISP and Neural Network-Based vision effects, such as low-light 
enhancement, to autonomously operate in both dark and lit environments.

    The NU4100 samples are already available and will be ready for mass 
production by January 2023. For more information, contact us at:
