Blaize and J-Squared Technologies, a provider of ruggedised computing hardware solutions, have entered into a strategic partnership enabling the distribution of the Blaize graph streaming processor (GSP) architecture hardware and software technologies.


"In many industries, SWaP-C (size, weight, and power – cost) has become a critical - if not top - priority. Our mission is to educate ourselves on technologies that can meet these demanding requirements and provide exceptional performance. Blaize's products check these boxes. Their GSP architecture makes it possible to deliver AI solutions at the edge efficiently and cost-effectively. With our worldwide distribution capability, this partnership enables both Blaize and J-Squared to address a growing market need," said Jeff Gibson, CEO and Founder of J-Squared.

J-Squared provides ruggedised hardware systems and support that meet and exceed MIL-standard requirements for harsh environments in the military, aerospace, mining, transportation, and energy sectors. With multiple form factors, Blaize brings a new class of programmability and efficiency benefits of its GSP architecture to embedded systems. The small form factor SoM is ideal for rugged and challenging environments and embedded systems that need an extended temperature range experienced in harsh environments.

"Blaize’s tightly coupled software and hardware deliver an end-to-end efficient, usable AI edge workflow providing solutions demanded by ruggedised environments," said Dinakar Munagala, CEO and Co-Founder of Blaize. "Providing our architectural solution and collaborating with J-Squared reinforces their commitment to delivering best-in-class ruggedised computing hardware solutions."

J-Squared Technologies has over 30 years of experience supporting and supplying the North American electronics marketplace. J-Squared specialises in the following ruggedised markets: aerospace, energy, industrial, military, mining, and transportation.

Blaize is a provider of a proprietary purpose-built, full-stack hardware architecture and low-code/no-code software platform that enables edge AI processing solutions at the network’s edge for computing in multiple large and rapidly-growing markets — automotive, mobility, retail, security, industrial automation, medical devices, and many others.
