Digi-Key Corporation to Distribute CogniMem Neural Chip
9 February, 2013
“Our customers are searching for innovative memory solutions ideal to support advanced technology applications such as natural language computing"
Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation and CogniMem Technologies, announced an exclusive global partnership in which Digi-Key will be the only global distributor of CogniMem’s unique cognitive memory products. The products are available on www.digikey.com.
CogniMem is an innovator in neural network architecture built to resemble the synapses of the human brain, creating reactive memory components that use high speed and parallel pattern recognition to ‘learn’ versus being programmed. The company’s unique neural network architecture products feature embedded embed intelligence into miniature sensory devices to enhance their performance in speed and power consumption. The products also scale to allow for fuzzy matching of data patterns in data mining.
“Our customers are searching for innovative memory solutions ideal to support advanced technology applications such as natural language computing, adaptive optics, robotics, consumer electronics and security products,” said Mark Zack, Vice President, Global Semiconductor Product at Digi-Key. “Now, we’re able to respond to this growing customer demand with innovative new products from CogniMem.”
CogniMem is a fabless semi-conductor company designing components for high speed and parallel pattern recognition. Its main product, the CM1K Chip, is the first ASIC version of the CogniMem neural network product line optimized for Cognitive Computing. It features 1024 neurons working in parallel and can recognize patterns at high speed while coping with ill-defined data, unknown events and changes of contexts and working conditions.
