NeuroMem logo


Neuromorphic Memories for Real-Time Machines Learning & Practical Artificial Intelligence Reactive, Associative, Exact or Fuzzy Matching, Massively Parallel, Trainable, Fixed Latencies, Low-Power, NeuroMem® is a unique architecture of Neuromorphic Memories which react to digital stimuli and can learn and recognize in real-time. A bank of NeuroMem chips can be compared to a brain because of its low power requirement, built-in adaptive learning, and interconnectivity to make global decision. Stimuli can derive from any data types such as text, scientific datasets, bio-signals, audio files, images, and videos, etc. Thanks to a natively parallel architecture, the latency of the neurons to learn or recognize patterns is independent of the number of active neurons. Our neuromorphic chips are opening new frontiers for smart sensors and cognitive computing applications. It can solve pattern recognition problems from text and data analytics, vision, audition, and multi-sensory fusion with orders of magnitude less energy and complexity than modern microprocessors.

ADI has been innovating at the intersection of the digital and real world for decades. Experience tells us there is a great deal yet to be discovered all around us - and even inside us. These discoveries will need advanced sensing to detect, measure, and record. They will need analytics and cloud capabilities to make sense of the tidal wave of data from those sensors. They will need transformative energy harvesting and storage innovations to keep the data flowing. And they will need you.


The Analog Garage is here to help you turn your disruptive ideas into tomorrow's realities. We provide entrepreneurs with a path to propose, explore and scale new technologies and new business models. We partner, mentor, and finance entrepreneurs with ideas that solve hard problems in the real world; the noisy, the messy, the difficult: the analog world.
