BrainChip has validated its Akida AI processor family integration with ARM’s Cortex-M85 processor for edge AI devices.
The Cortex-M85 delivers the highest levels of performance in the ARM Cortex-M family, with Renesas Electronics as the lead developer, demonstrating AI applications running on fhte core at Embedded World (EW2023) this week. Renesas has also licensed the Akida core.
By successfully demonstrating Akida’s capabilities with the Cortex-M85 in a fully functioning environment, BrainChip paves the way for a new generation of intelligent edge devices that are capable of delivering unprecedented levels of performance and functionality. These include smart home devices, robotics, and drone control, secured system controllers and sensor hubs.
