Israel-Based Chipmaker Expands Into Asia

By Joel Davies -

Hailo has announced its partnership with AITg (part of WPG Holdings), a global semiconductor distributor, to promote and support Hailo’s products in Taiwan and the Greater China region.

Hailo, an AI-focused, Israel-based chipmaker, has developed a specialized Artificial Intelligence (AI) processor that delivers the performance of a data centre-class computer to edge devices. Hailo’s AI processor enables smart devices to perform sophisticated deep learning tasks such as object detection and segmentation in real-time. AITg is a professional IC distributor, offering technical and logistic support for vendors and customers in the regions of China and Taiwan.

The agreement is part of Hailo’s strategy to strengthen partnerships with existing customers in Taiwan and China whilst expanding further into other Asia-Pacific markets to enable companies from a wide array of industries to accelerate AI computing performance at the edge. Hailo will continue to offer its product line to customers in the region, including its specialized AI processor for edge devices, the Hailo-8™, as well as its M.2 and Mini PCIe high-performance AI acceleration modules.

“AITg’s strong relationships with vendors and customers in China and Taiwan will assist us in strengthening our presence in these key regions, where demand for Edge AI solutions is growing rapidly”, said Orr Danon, CEO of Hailo. “Customers from a wide variety of industries seek to empower their devices with AI to improve their flexibility, scalability, versatility and energy efficiency. We are proud to work with AITg to bring unmatched edge processing solutions to existing customers and new ones, further expanding our robust AI offerings across the globe”.

The Hailo-8™ delivers features up to 26 Tera Operations Per Second (TOPS) and the module is built with an architecture that enables edge devices to run sophisticated Deep Learning applications that could previously only run on the cloud. Hailo-8’s advanced structure translates into what it calls “higher performance, lower power, and minimal latency, enabling enhanced privacy and better reliability” for smart devices operating at the edge.

“We are excited to work with a leading AI chip company such as Hailo to leverage the vast potential of their innovative AI solutions at the edge”, said Jackie Hsu, CEO of AITg. “Our experience in guiding customers in new technology adoption and demand creation, coupled with Hailo’s powerful AI solutions, will bring significant value to customers in Taiwan and China”.
