The Sacramento Region Innovation Awards recognized Blaize, the AI computing innovator revolutionizing Edge and automotive compute solutions, as the winner of the 2022 Hardware & Electronics Innovator of the Year for the Blaize Pathfinder P1600 Embedded System on Module (SoM).
Blaize Embedded System on Module
The Pathfinder P1600 Embedded System on Module brings the programmability and efficiency benefits of the Blaize Graph Streaming Processor (GSP) architecture to embedded systems. The P1600 is a small form factor SoM ideal for rugged and challenging environments and embedded systems that need an extended temperature range. The GSP architecture enables new levels of processing power with energy efficiency ideal for AI inferencing workloads at the Edge and is designed to easily plug into a custom carrier board and run autonomously or integrated within a more extensive system.
“On behalf of Blaize, we’re honored to receive the 2022 Sacramento Region Innovation Award in the Hardware & Electronics category,” said Dinakar Munagala, Co-founder and CEO of Blaize. “Our Pathfinder P1600 Embedded System on Module is a software-defined AI inference accelerator based on the Blaize Graph Streaming Processor architecture with low power, low latency, and energy efficiency ideal for AI inferencing workloads at the Edge. We are thrilled to celebrate this accomplishment with the Regional Innovation ecosystem and congratulate the nominees and winners for their pioneering innovations.”
The honor was presented at the Innovation Awards program on November 1 at The Sofia Theatre in Downtown Sacramento, California.
