ARM Technology Delivers On-Device IoT Intelligence

Arm Technology has introduced an addition to its artificial intelligence (AI) platform. This addition includes machine learning (ML) IP, the Arm Cortex-M55 processor and Arm Ethos-U55 NPU. The NPU is a microNPU that is designed to deliver a combined 480x leap in ML performance to microcontrollers.

The new IP and supporting unified toolchain equip AI hardware and software developers with methods to innovate. This comes as a result of levels of on-device ML processing for billions of small, power-constrained IoT and embedded devices.

“Enabling AI everywhere requires device makers and developers to deliver machine learning locally on billions, and ultimately trillions of devices,” said Dipti Vachani, SVP and GM, Automotive and IoT Line of Business, Arm Technology. “With these additions to our AI platform, no device is left behind as on-device ML on the tiniest devices will be the new normal, unleashing the potential of AI securely across a vast range of life-changing applications.”

As the IoT mixes with AI advancements and the rollout of 5G, more on-device intelligence means that smaller, cost-sensitive devices can be smarter and capable while benefiting from greater privacy and reliability due to less reliance on the cloud or internet. The company reduces silicon and development costs and advances time to market for product manufacturers looking to efficiently enhance digital signal processing (DSP) and ML capabilities on-device.
