Perceive Recognized For Internet-of-Things Innovation in 7th Annual IoT Breakthrough Awards Program

We’re pleased to announce that Perceive has been selected as winner of the “IoT Semiconductor Product of the Year” award in the 7th annual IoT Breakthrough Awards program conducted by IoT Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Internet-of-Things (IoT) market today. 

The award recognizes Perceive’s new Ergo® 2 AI processor, the latest addition to the Ergo product line. Ergo 2 runs up to four times faster than the company’s first-generation Ergo chip and delivers significantly more processing power, providing device makers with the performance needed for more complex use cases, including those requiring transformer models, larger neural networks, multiple networks operating simultaneously, and multimodal inputs, while maintaining industry-leading power efficiency.  

“A flexible, powerful chip that can handle a myriad of machine learning tasks, from object classification and detection, to image segmentation and pose, to audio signal processing and language is necessary as IoT scales,“ said James Johnson, managing director at IoT Breakthrough. “In a crowded IoT market, the Ergo 2 chip from Perceive stands out by blending groundbreaking features, optimal packaging, and unprecedented performance to provide a breakthrough solution with state-of-the-art machine learning capabilities at the edge. Congratulations to the Perceive team on winning our ‘IoT Semiconductor Product of the Year’ award for 2023.” 

The mission of the IoT Breakthrough Awards program is to recognize the innovators, leaders and visionaries from around the globe in a range of IoT categories, including Industrial and Enterprise IoT, Smart City technology, Connected Home and Home Automation, Connected Car, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from companies all over the world.
