Tonight, Intel announced the official sale of a U disk products, Movidius Neural Compute Stick (NCS), the neuron calculation bar.
In other words, this is a product that can support the depth of the machine & ldquo; plus blood & rdquo; and provide localized code to run support.
The new NCS was developed based on Fathom NCS, which was manufactured by Movidius, but the company has been acquired by Intel.
Compared to 2016 models, 2017 models of the NCS calculation bar will be integrated running memory increased to 1GB, support for accelerated mode and multi-USB counterparts, SoC for the MA2455, joined the safe start, TSMC 28nm HPC process. Depth learning framework, only support Caffe, give up the Google brain TensorFlow.
Caffe's full name is Convolutional Architecture for Fast Feature Embedding, the author is a graduate of Berkeley Zhejiang Jia Yangqing, it is a clear and efficient open source depth learning framework, the core language is C + +, support command line, Python and Matlab interface, both Run on the CPU can also run on the GPU.
This U disk connected to the host, you can get the highest 100GFLOPs floating point performance, power consumption is only 1W.
Price, NCS 79 US dollars (about 533 yuan) one, now listed.
