XMOS ORIGINS

In 2005, a small team assembled to create a fast and flexible microcontroller that would enable designers to respond quickly to diversifying market demand. The first (XS1) and second (xcore-200) generation processors put unprecedented I/O capability (available through software for the first time) alongside significant DSP and control processing – establishing XMOS as a name in the audio sector.

The vision quickly shifted towards AI. Caught between two very different technical and commercial models, Graphcore was formed to focus on server-side AI, and XMOS continued the quest towards low-cost embedded intelligence (edge-AI). Most recently XMOS enabled voice to become mainstream, releasing the XVF3510 – a disruptive high-performance, low cost far-field 2-mic voice interface. This was followed up with xcore.ai – a new crossover processor for the AIoT that brings AI, DSP, control and I/O together in a single device.

OUR VISION

Creating a world of possibilities by bringing technology closer to each and every one of us.

THE INNOVATION LAB

Our R&D team are bringing the future forward. Building on our xcore.ai platform, and leveraging our expertise in digital signal processing as well and extending our capabilities with new partnerships, we’re working on applications that detect human presence, use a human keyword and lean into imaging and radar for individual identification.
