Intel announces its Loihi 2 neuromorphic chip based on Intel 4

Intel has unveiled Loihi 2, its new second-generation neuromorphic research chip. The announcement comes with Lava, an open source software framework for developing neurologically inspired applications.

The introduction of Intel Loihi 2 and Lava signals Intel's continued progress in advancing neuromorphic technology. Neuromorphic computing, which draws insights from neuroscience to create chips that function similar to a biological brain, aims to deliver orders of magnitude improvements in energy efficiency, computing speed, and learning efficiency in a variety of applications.

Intel advances neuromophic research with oihi 2

Neuromorphic research-related applications that Intel and its partners have demonstrated to date include robotic arms, neuromorphic skins, and olfactory sensing, along with other advancements in vision, voice, and gestures, and recognition for recovery seeking, robotics, and restricted optimization problems.

The Intel Loihi 2 research chip incorporates lessons learned from three years of use with its predecessor and takes advantage of progress in Intel process technology and asynchronous design methods. Advances in Loihi 2 enable the architecture to support new classes of neurology-inspired algorithms and applications, while providing up to 10 times faster processing, up to 15 times higher resource density with up to 1 million neurons per chip and improved energy efficiency.

The chip was developed in close collaboration with the Intel Technology Development Group, and manufactured using a pre-production version of the Intel 4 process, which underscores the health and progress of Intel 4. The use of ultraviolet lithography Extreme (EUV) on Intel 4 has simplified layout design rules compared to previous process technologies. This has made it possible to rapidly develop Loihi 2.
