Deep Vision, a startup developing AI edge accelerator hardware, has recently closed a US$35 million Series B financing round, with Silicon Motion Technology being among the investors.

Silicon Motion also participated in the Series A financing.

Silicon Motion intends to build a strategic partnership with Deep Vision, which has patented AI processors to perform real-time video analytics and provide natural language processing (NLP) capabilities for a growing market of voice-controlled applications, said Wallace Kou, president and CEO of the Taiwan-based flash storage controller specialist.

Deep Vision's AI processor technology is specifically designed for edge computing solutions, with its target markets set to expand to include smart retail solutions such as unmanned shops, drones, smart cities and robots, Kou indicated.

Besides, through the partnership, Silicon Motion could have its solutions combined with Deep Vision's technology and introduce a brand new product segment to comply with future technology trends, according to Kou.
