Microchip Partners with Cartesiam, Edge Impulse, and Motion Gestures to simplify ML Implementation at the Edge

September 15, 2020 Perry Cohen

Microchip Technology announced a partnership with Cartesiam, Edge Impulse, and Motion Gestures to simplify ML implementation at the edge. The companies plan on doing so by working with Cartesiam’s ARM Cortex based 32-bit microcontrollers and microprocessors in its MPLAB X Integrated Development Environment (IDE).

The collaboration allows Microchip to support users through all phases of AI/ML projects including data gathering, training, 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 vice president of Microchip’s human machine interface and touch function group Fanie Duvenhage, in a press release. “It is also easy to test these solutions using our ML evaluation kits such as the EV18H79A or EV45Y33A.”

Cartesiam specializes in AI developments tools for microcontrollers. The company’s NanoEdge AI™ Studio, is a patented development environment, allowing users with little knowledge of AI to develop specialized ML libraries.

Edge Impulse is an end-to-end developer platform that is free for developers, providing dataset collection, DSP and ML algorithms, testing and highly efficient inference code generation across a wide range of sensor, audio, and vision applications.

Motion Gesture provides embedded AI-based gesture recognition software for different sensors, including touch, motion (i.e. IMU) and vision.

Per the release, the MPLAB X IDE ML implementations will be featured during the Embedded Vision Summit 2020 virtual conference, September 15-17. Attendees can see video demonstrations at the company’s virtual exhibit, which will be staffed each day from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. PDT.
