Hailo, a Tel Aviv-based start-up best known for its high-performance AI chips, today revealed the launch of its M. 2 and Mini PCIe high-AI velocity modules. Based around its Hailo-8 chip, these new designs are indicated to be utilized in edge devices for anything from smart city and wise house solutions to industrial applications.
Today’s announcement comes about half a year after the company announced a $60 million Series B financing round. At the time, Hailo said it was raising those brand-new funds to roll out its brand-new AI chips, and with today’s statement, it’s making great on this promise. In total, the company has actually now raised $88 million.
“Manufacturers throughout markets understand how essential it is to integrate AI abilities into their edge gadgets. Put simply, options without AI can no longer complete,” said Orr Danon, CEO of Hailo, in today’s announcement. “Our new Hailo-8 M. 2 and Mini PCIe modules will empower companies worldwide to create new effective, cost-effective, innovative AI-based items with a brief time-to-market– while staying within the systems’ thermal constraints. The high effectiveness and top performance of Hailo’s modules are a true gamechanger for the edge market.”

One thing that makes Hailo’s chips different is its architecture, which allows it to instantly adjust to the needs of the neural network working on it.
Hailo is not shy about comparing its option to that of heavyweights like Intel, Google and Nvidia. With 26 tera-operations per second (TOPS) and power performance of 3 TOPS/W, the business claims its edge modules can examine significantly more frames per second than Intel’s Myriad-X and Google’s Edge TPU modules– all while also being far more energy effective.

Due to the fact that it’s simply a standard M. 2 module, Foxconn had the ability to integrate it without any rework. Utilizing the Hailo-8 M. 2 solution, this edge computing server can process 20 cam streams at the same time.” Hailo’s M. 2 and Mini PCIe modules, together with the high-performance Hailo -8 AI chip, will allow numerous quickly evolving markets to embrace sophisticated innovations in a really brief time, ushering in a brand-new generation of high efficiency, low power, and smarter AI-based options,”stated Dr. Gene Liu, VP of Semiconductor Subgroup at Foxconn Technology Group.
