Syntiant is a provider of deep learning solutions making edge AI a reality for always-on voice, sensor, audio and image applications.

Syntiant is pushing cutting-edge machine learning from the cloud to edge devices.

Syntiant was co-founded in 2017 by Kurt Busch, Jeremy Holleman, Pieter Vorenkamp and Stephen Bailey. The company is headquartered in Irvine, California.


Syntiant’s advanced chip solutions merge deep learning with semiconductor design to produce ultra-low-power, high performance, deep neural network processors for edge AI applications across a wide range of consumer and industrial use cases, from earbuds to automobiles.


Syntiant's Neural Decision Processors™ allow edge devices to hear, speak, see and feel in a wide range of domains such as earbuds, wearables, smartphones, smart speakers, laptops, automobiles and other IoT consumer and industrial use cases.


Syntiant NDPs typically offer more than 100x efficiency improvement, while providing a greater than 10x increase in throughput over current low-power MCU-based solutions, subsequently enabling larger networks at significantly lower power and greatly increasing battery life, while simultaneously decreasing infrastructure costs.


Syntiant is backed by Intel Capital, Microsoft’s M12, Applied Ventures, Robert Bosch Venture Capital, the Amazon Alexa Fund, Atlantic Bridge Capital, Mirae Asset, Applied Ventures, Renesas Electronics Corporation, and others.
