An ultra-low power design

For mobile and connected devices where battery life is critical, Intel's Myriad™ 2 VPU provides a way to combine advanced vision applications in a low power profile. This enables new vision applications in small form factors that could not exist before.

A high-performance processor

Bringing vision technologies in connected devices closer to the capabilities of human vision is what we do. Intel's Myriad™ 2 VPU enables advanced vision applications that are impossible with conventional processors.

A programmable architecture

The flexibility for developers to implement differentiated and proprietary applications is fundamental to Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ 2. Our optimized software libraries give device manufacturers the ability to differentiate, not duplicate, at the core level.

A small-area footprint

To conserve space inside mobile, wearable, and embedded devices, Intel's Myriad™ 2 VPU was designed with a very small footprint that can easily be integrated into existing products.

Additional Chip Details

The Intel® Movidius™ Myriad™ 2 architecture comprises a complete set of interfaces, a set of enhanced imaging/vision accelerators, a group of 12 specialized vector VLIW processors called SHAVEs, and an intelligent memory fabric that pulls together the processing resources to enable power efficient processing.

The Myriad 2 reference board includes reference camera and MEMs sensors, and an integration kit for applications processors, enabling developers to efficiently prototype applications.

Key Benefits
