YodaNN: An Architecture for Ultralow Power Binary-Weight CNN Acceleration
This paper presents an accelerator optimized for binary-weight CNNs that significantly outperforms the state-of-the-art in terms of energy and area efficiency and removes the need for expensive multiplications, as well as reducing I/O bandwidth and storage. Expand
YodaNN: An Ultra-Low Power Convolutional Neural Network Accelerator Based on Binary Weights
A HW accelerator optimized for BinaryConnect CNNs that achieves 1510 GOp/s on a core area of only 1.33 MGE and with a power dissipation of 153 mW in UMC 65 nm technology at 1.2 V is presented. Expand
A transprecision floating-point platform for ultra-low power computing
A software library that enables exploration of FP types by tuning both precision and dynamic range of program variables is introduced and a methodology to integrate the library with an external tool for precision tuning is presented, and experimental results that highlight the clear benefits of introducing the new formats are presented.
