Microchip Technology has collaborated with Cartesiam, Edge Impulse and Motion Gestures to simplify ML implementation at the edge using the company’s ARM Cortex based 32-bit micro-controllers and microprocessors in its MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
Bringing the interface to these partners’ software and solutions into its design environment uniquely positions Microchip to support customers through all phases of their AI/ML projects including data gathering, training the models and inference implementation.
“Adoption of our 32-bit MCUs in AI-at-the-edge applications is growing rapidly and now these designs are easy for any embedded system developer to implement,” said Fanie Duvenhage, vice president of Microchip’s human machine interface and touch function group. “It is also easy to test these solutions using our ML evaluation kits such as the EV18H79A or EV45Y33A.”
Cartesiam is a software publisher specializing in artificial intelligence development tools for microcontrollers. NanoEdge AI Studio, Cartesiam’s patented development environment, allows embedded developers, without any prior knowledge of AI, to rapidly develop specialized machine learning libraries for microcontrollers. Devices leveraging Cartesiam’s technology are already in production at hundreds of sites throughout the World.
