Lenovo Using ML-Enabled FPGA in Premium Laptops


At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) of 2022, Lenovo updated its premium laptop lineup that consists of X1 Carbon, X1 Yoga, and X1 Nano. The most exciting features of these laptops are the inclusion of computer vision technology. Lenovo utilizes computer vision for user detection, privacy control, simple user login, and enhanced energy management.

These features are supported by a Neural Processing Unit (NPU), based on the CrossLink-NX Field Programmable Gated Array (FPGA) from Lattice Semiconductor. Aside from the low-power FPGA, Lenovo uses Lattice Semiconductor’s sensAI (Artificial Intelligence) solution stack. This complementary software solution features ready-to-use Machine Learning (ML) tools, Intellectual Property (IP) cores, hardware platforms, reference designs, and demos, as well as custom design services.

Uncharted Territory


The edge ML market has proliferated in recent years. So much so, that, based on ABI Research’s edge ML market data (MD-AIML-108), edge ML chipset sales are expec…
