Richardson RFPD has signed a distribution agreement with Cartesiam, a supplier of artificial intelligence solutions for standard Cortex-M microcontrollers.
Its most recent announcement is the availability of NanoEdge AI Studio, the first integrated development environment (IDE) that enables rapid and easy creation of machine learning algorithms for Arm Cortex-M microcontrollers.
This solution runs autonomously on the developer’s workstation under Windows or Linux, so no data is transmitted outside the customer’s environment.
It will automatically test, optimise and calculate the best algorithmic combination among more than 500 million possible combinations, after the developer has described the targeted environment, and it provides the selected algorithm as a C library that is easily embeddable in the microcontroller.
NanoEdge AI Studio also enables the execution of unsupervised learning, inference and prediction on the device edge, opening new classes of small, low-power, low-cost devices to AI for the first time.
“We are very pleased to continue to enrich our portfolio with advanced solutions,” said Rafael R. Salmi, Richardson RFPD’s president. “We believe that Cartesiam’s NanoEdge AI Studio is exactly the software solution that many of our customers need to build their first AI objects, and we look forward to assisting those efforts.”
“Richardson RFPD’s rich history of providing deep technical expertise matches perfectly with Cartesiam’s ambition to deliver the most exciting solutions in the industry,” said Marc Dupaquier, co-founder and general manager of Cartesiam. “Together, we provide design engineers with the ability to rapidly and seamlessly add machine learning capability to their existing and new objects, adding dramatic value and differentiation to their products.”
