2022 Hardware & Electronics Innovator award for Blaize
The Sacramento Region Innovation Awards has awarded Blaize, innovator in AI computing in Edge and automotive compute systems, the 2022 Hardware & Electronics Innovator of the Year for its Blaize Pathfinder P1600 Embedded SoM (system on module).
The Pathfinder P1600 Embedded SoM 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 that has been designed 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.
Said Dinakar Munagala, Co-Founder and CEO of Blaize: “On behalf of Blaize, we’re honoured to receive the 2022 Sacramento Region Innovation Award in the Hardware & Electronics category.
"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 honour was presented at the Innovation Awards program on the 1st of November 2022 at The Sofia Theatre in Downtown Sacramento, California.
