Ekkono Solutions is Sweden has developed predictive AI software development kit (SDK) for the Infineon AURIX TC3x and TC4x microcontrollers.

The predictive AI algorithms developed by Ekkono perform individual incremental learning at the edge, i.e. when the vehicle is started up and during operation. This enables virtual sensors that augment or replace physical sensors for climate control, battery management, and emissions, health indicators that detect deviations on transmission, gearboxes, and braking systems for condition-based maintenance, as well as simulations that determine the optimal driveline settings for the individual vehicle.

Ekkono was founded in 2016 and the SDK is based on the results from over seven years of research at the University of Borås.

Ekkono has adapted this to Infineon’s AURIX core and accelerators so that without any further adjustments at the hardware level, developers can train and generate AI algorithms while taking advantage of the advanced capabilities of the AURIX TC3x and TC4x, especially for secure and safety-critical automotive applications. This embedded artificial intelligence enables vehicles to be context-aware and understands the environment.

“We’ve been an Infineon ecosystem partner since 2019”, says Rikard König, CTO and co-founder at Ekkono. “Now we have a mature solution together that meets the needs and requirements of the automotive industry. We take great pride in going to market with Infineon who is one of the monoliths of high-performance MCUs in this space.”

“Artificial intelligence is on the rise and there is no question that this technology will also play a crucial role in tomorrow’s transportation solutions,” said Thomas Boehm, Senior Vice President Microcontroller at Infineon. “The latest Infineon AURIX microcontrollers provide versatile AI capabilities for customer projects. We are therefore excited to work with Ekkono to further simplify the development of AI-based automotive applications. We believe that these applications will not only serve convenience purposes but will also improve road safety and security.”

The Infineon AURIX TC3x and TC4x with Ekkono SDK are available now.;
