A Leader in the Neural Computing Field
At BrainChip, we have developed a revolutionary Spiking Neuron Adaptive Processor (SNAP) technology that learns autonomously, evolves and associates information just like the human brain.
SNAP is a new Neural Networking technology that has been designed from the ground up to be an unsupervised learning system. SNAP recognizes patterns within seconds without having to be pre-programmed to do so. It achieves this by learning from the information on its own, and then later recognizing what it has learned.
SNAP allows us to offer a complete development solution for companies entering the neuromorphic semiconductor chip market. SNAP technology IP is available for licensing for companies seeking to build and use fast, powerful, autonomous learning chips for their products and applications.
The Neuromorphic Chip Market is estimated to be worth $4.8 Billion by 2022 with a CAGR of 26.31% between 2016 and 2022*

How We Got Here
Peter van der Made, the visionary behind BrainChip, has dedicated the last 10 years to preparing the company for success. His expertise is based on his significant commercial success with his technology, which has helped establish him as a leader of computer innovation for the last 40 years.
Peter invented one of the earliest high-resolution color graphics accelerator chips for the IBM personal computer, as well as a computer immune system that was ultimately acquired by IBM-ISS where he was appointed Chief Scientist in 2002.
Unique within the Neural Computing Sector
The neural computing sector includes well-known companies like Cisco Systems, IBM, Intel, Google, Microsoft, nVidia, Qualcomm and Samsung who are each evolving their own versions of neural (cognitive) architecture designed across different platforms and utilizing various techniques in order to achieve the desired results.
BrainChip is uniquely positioned within this sector as a developer of a digital, "hardware only" solution, as opposed to the software solution many companies are pursuing.
BrainChip can replace "deep-trained" (programmed) systems. These can take days or weeks to train, which compromises the spectrum of visibility for pattern recognition, yet SNAP learns in seconds.
