MegaChips licenses Akida spiking neural network IP
Japanese fabless chip company MegaChips has licensed the Akida spiking neural network intellectual property from BrainChip Holdings Ltd. (Laguna Hills, Calif.).

MegaChips Corp. (Osaka, Japan) has partnered with BrainChip to advance its position in developing AI-enabled ASICs for such markets as automotive, IoT, cameras, gaming and industrial robotics.

Applications include but are not limited to home automation and remote controls, industrial IoT, robotics, security cameras, sensors, unmanned aircraft, autonomous vehicles, medical instruments, object detection, sound detection, odor and taste detection, gesture control and cybersecurity.

"Working with BrainChip and incorporating their Akida technology into our ASIC solutions service, we are better able to handle the development and support processes needed to design and manufacture integrated circuits and systems on chips that can take advantage of AI at the Edge," said Tetsuo Hikawa, CEO of MegaChips, in a statement.

MegaChips, founded in 1990, was the first fabless chip company in Japan and it has gone on to annual sales of 83.8 billion yen (about US$735 million) in the 2020 fiscal year.

The company focuses on ASICs for automotive and industrial equipment, such as 5G communications infrastructure and factory automation.
