SINGAPORE, Jan. 30, 2018 — Scientists have developed a microchip that can capture visual details from video frames using extremely low levels of power. According to the research team, the chip's video feature extractor uses 20 times less power than existing best-in-class chips. The new microchip, called EQSCALE, could reduce the size of smart vision systems down to the millimeter range. Current chips consume up to hundreds of milliwatts to power a smartphone, for example. To enable near-perpetual operation, devices can be powered by solar cells that harvest energy from natural lighting in living spaces. However,...Read full article
