The Growing Market For Specialized Artificial Intelligence IP In SoCs

How designs are changing with machine vision and other AI-based applications.


Over the past decade, designers have developed silicon technologies that run advanced deep learning mathematics fast enough to explore and implement artificial intelligence (AI) applications such as object identification, voice and facial recognition, and more. Machine vision applications, which are now often more accurate than a human, are one of the key functions driving new system-on-chip (SoC) investments to satisfy the development of AI for everyday applications. Using convolutional neural networks (CNNs) and other deep learning algorithms in vision applications have made such an impact that AI capabilities within SoCs are becoming pervasive. It was summarized effectively by Semico’s 2018 AI Report “…some level of AI function in literally every type of silicon is strong and gaining momentum.”
