  • Publication number: 20200257955
    Abstract: In one embodiment, a computing device includes an input sensor providing an input data; a programmable logic device (PLD) implementing a convolutional neural network (CNN), wherein: each compute block of the PLD corresponds to one of a multiple of convolutional layers of the CNN, each compute block of the PLD is placed in proximity to at least two memory blocks, a first one of the memory blocks serves as a buffer for the corresponding layer of the CNN, and a second one of the memory blocks stores model-specific parameters for the corresponding layer of the CNN.

  • Publication number: 20200257960
    Abstract: Systems and processes for training and compressing a convolutional neural network model include the use of quantization and layer fusion. Quantized training data is passed through a convolutional layer of a neural network model to generate convolutional results during a first iteration of training the neural network model. The convolutional results are passed through a batch normalization layer of the neural network model to update normalization parameters of the batch normalization layer. The convolutional layer is fused with the batch normalization layer to generate a first fused layer and the fused parameters of the fused layer are quantized. The quantized training data is passed through the fused layer using the quantized fused parameters to generate output data, which may be quantized for a subsequent layer in the training iteration.

  • Patent number: 10383126
    Abstract: Examples described herein include wireless transmitters configured for power transmission. Example wireless transmitters may insert power packets into wireless communications such that power harvesting circuitry may harvest sufficiently continuous power from the wireless communication signals. Example power harvesting circuitry is configured to harvest power across multiple wireless communication channels. Example chargers are described which may harvest power from wireless communication signals (e.g. Wi-Fi signals).
