“The incorporation of AI into display devices has the potential to completely change how viewers interact with these screens,” said Craig Stein, SVP and GM at Synaptics. “It shifts these devices from display-only into interactive platforms that can be used standalone to enable a new level of end-user experiences.”

The Smart Display platform comprises primarily the VS600 and Synaptics’ SyNAP development framework, along with the LCD and wireless connectivity. Its versatility addresses multiple market segments such as operator assistants, monitors, video conferencing devices, security panels, and kitchen appliances.

The VS600 series was first demonstrated in January 2020. Since then, it has shipped in millions of products that leverage its combination of high-end multicore CPUs, GPUs, as well as dedicated neural processing units (NPUs) that efficiently run complex machine learning (ML) inference. The SyNAP AI framework enables AI partners to quickly implement and optimize AI models to add differentiating features to their products.
