deliver more enables developers to embed intelligence at the edge. With fully programmable ports, fast processing and neural network capabilities, processes data locally and takes actions on device – within nanoseconds. With highly efficient computation of deep neural networks, inferences and characterisation of 8bit and binarized network models are supported (as well as 16bit and 32bit). is programmable in C using industry standard tools, and developers can access machine learning capabilities and fine tune their models for accuracy and performance using standard frameworks such as TensorFlow Lite.

On-device intelligence is architected to deliver tailored, functional performance for AIoT applications. With 16 logical cores, the new crossover processor provides efficient, high performance compute at the edge, enabling sensing, signal processing, machine learning, control and communication to all be processed concurrently. Unlike other processors, is lightning fast and predictable, with execution determinism measured in single cycles – which means it takes milliseconds to boot from zero-power and nanoseconds to transition from low power standby to full performance.


Utilising the four types of compute on, manufacturers can design new intelligent product types for the AIoT, as well as enhancing electronics that already surround us. has the highest processing power and most flexibility for the cost. This means that electronics manufacturers (no matter their size) can embed more intelligence in IoT devices to make life simpler, safer and more satisfying for all.


Cost is a significant consideration for any designer of smart products. Today’s devices require either multiple discrete components or bigger, more expensive processors or SoCs to deliver sufficient performance, inferencing and connectivity. With flexible forms of compute and connectivity in a single device, keeps the eBOM costs low, and design potential high.
