Neuromorphic chip startup Innatera recently productized its spiking neural network accelerator in the form of a neuromorphic microcontroller, designed for always-on sensing applications in consumer electronics and the IoT.
Intel Ignite is an internationally renowned acceleration program for early-stage deep tech startups. Launched in 2019 by Intel, the Ignite program aims to fuel a global ecosystem of deep tech innovation by empowering a diverse network of founders, mentors, domain experts, and investors to co-create enduring, industry-defining technology companies.
The province of South Holland highlighted Innatera as one of the leading AI innovators in the region. Watch this short interview with Innatera CEO Sumeet Kumar!
Innatera's chip takes information from a sensor, converts it into spikes, and encodes the content based on when these spikes occur. The chip mimics the brain by scaling the current going into and coming out of the artificial neuron. The goal is not to disrupt the AI flow into the cloud but to replace AI chips on the edge that cannot currently make on-device decisions. The chip reduces the process of converting analog signals to digital by converting analog signals into spikes.
Dutch chip startup Innatera has shown its neuromorphic microcontroller for edge AI sensor applications based on the RISC-V open instruction set architecture.

Science financier NWO is providing funding for two TU/e research projects led by professors Henk Corporaal and Federico Toschi. They can use the money to develop more energy-efficient AI processors and take computational fluid dynamics to a higher level. A total of nine projects will receive a total of more than nine million euros from NWO. Consortium partners, including Innatera, are contributing nearly another one and a half million euros in co-funding. Dr. Amir Zjajo leads Innatera's involvement in the NWO project.
