Shanghai (Gasgoo)- The Ascend 310 chip from Huawei is the most powerful AI SoC chip for edge computing scenarios, including autonomous driving, Yan Lida, Director of the Board at Huawei and President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, said at the Fifth World Internet Conference, held in Wuzhen, Zhejiang Province.
At the conference, the Ascend 310 was granted the conference’s World Leading Internet Scientific and Technological Achievement award. In October, Huawei unveiled its AI strategy and full-stack portfolio, including a series of chips, cloud services and products. The Ascend 310 is the first product of the Ascend family.
Nowadays, the most typical edge computing scenarios includes security and protection, autonomous driving and smart manufacturing, all of which require stringent conditions in space, consumption and computing capability. The Ascend 310 boasts a maximum of 16TOPS on-site calculations and supports the identification of over 200 different objects at the same time, including human beings, cars, barriers and traffic signs. What’s more, the chip can process thousands of pictures within one second.
The Ascend 310 can offer cost-efficient and powerful computing capability under various real-life scenarios, such as running vehicles and complex scientific research. In October, Huawei teamed up with Audi to road test L4 autonomous driving vehicles equipped with Huawei’s Mobile Data Center (MDC) computing unit. Huawei said that estimate showed that the 310 chipset can only consume 200 watts of power to support L4 autonomous driving.
