Ultra-low power AI chips for always-on applications

This report provides details of ultra-low power AI chipsets that are being used for always-on applications. Driven by smart-speakers and wearables, ultra-low power chipsets have already reached 10s of millions in volume and the shipments are only expected to accelerate in the near future. A wide range of use cases that start from listening to wake word to sensor signal analysis to people monitoring are enabled via ultra-low power chipsets. Several chipset vendors have already reached multi-million shipments in this market segment marked by the absence of large AI chip companies that dominate other market segments.

This Market Report assesses the industry dynamics, technology issues, and market opportunity surrounding ultra-low power chipsets (<100mw). The report analyzes different chipset architectures (CPUs, GPUs, FPGAs, ASICs) and provides reader with vendors, products, technology and challenges. This report then analyzes use cases and applications and provides details on business. A quantitative section provides market data by segment, volume, architecture and forecast till 2027.
