Alif Semiconductor is revolutionizing the way developers create products using secure AI/ML-enabled 32-bit microcontrollers.
The Ensemble family of microcontrollers and fusion processors have been architected to provide:
Unrivaled Battery Life
Longer product life on a smaller battery.
Alif’s unique power architecture includes aiPM technology, a system that autonomously powers on only what is needed when needed, to give you battery life previously unheard of.
Single to multi-core performance for any workload.
Our processors scale seamlessly from single core to multi-core, giving you the freedom to reuse the same software across a wide spectrum of products. Ample memory, power management, security, graphics, imaging, and AI/ML, are all on-die, allowing for a true single-chip IoT design.
Protection at every part of the device life cycle.
Strong security is fundamental for connected devices. Our solution protects the device, data, and your customers throughout the full product life cycle by providing a strong Root of Trust, a separate isolated secure subsystem, identity protection, cryptographic services for user data, over the air updates, and fine-grained run-time security settings—all with minimal application overhead.
HW Accelerated AI
At least 40X faster than conventional MCUs.
All products offer hardware AI Acceleration with one or more dedicated Ethos-U55 Neural Processing Units, so you don’t have to sacrifice power or performance for AI workloads.
Updates from Alif Semiconductor
Arrow Electronics University: Cleveland & Pittsburg
We are thrilled to be joining Arrow University in Cleveland on September 27th and Pittsburg on September 28th! With already 200+ attendees registered, we are expecting a busy couple of days! Join us at our seminar in either location, and stop by our booth to see our demonstrations up close. Consider how a new 32-bit microcontroller solution can level up your design by providing unmatched hardware accelerated AI/ML (Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning) that is architected specifically for long battery life.
Electronica India 2023
Join us at Electronica India next week from September 13th-15th! Find us with ISMOsys Group Ltd, our dedicated representative in India, and take the first steps on getting started with and implementing Alif Ensemble microcontrollers and fusion processors*! What is a “fusion processor?” Fusion processors are a new category of embedded controllers that blend MPU, MCU, and AI/ML into a single device. Stop by the Ismosys booth to get a personal demonstration.
Chalk Talk on Alif’s 32-bit MCUs
Watch our Chalk Talk with EE Journal where we dive into our Ensemble family of microcontrollers. The Ensemble family of MCUs is the industry’s first 32-bit microcontroller that offers high-speed and efficient AI/ML for Vision, Voice, and Vibration use cases. While tinyML is limited to low-end Voice or Vibration use cases- and can’t handle Vision use cases, Alif MCUs fill the gap in the market with the ability to process large AI/ML workloads for all three V’s – without draining battery life and raising costs as seen with power hungry GPU devices.
Alif Semiconductor and Arm At Embedded Vision Summit 2023 Showcase AI/ML Powered Face Detection
In case you missed us at Embedded Vision Summit this year, catch up with Alif & Arm for this demonstration of battery-powered AI/ML face detection with Arm Ethos-U55 and Cortex-M55 for hardware accelerated machine learning.
2023 Edge AI Report
Wevolver has partnered with industry experts like Alif Semiconductor to create a detailed report on the current state of Edge AI. The Edge AI landscape is rapidly evolving, propelled further by the advancement of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Read the 2023 Edge AI Technology Report for applicable knowledge and useful insights on the current state of Edge AI.
AI Enhanced Face Detection Demo
Watch as we demo an AI-Enhanced Face Detection Demo powered by Alif Ensemble E3, with 7 msec per inference operation, which is 40X faster than the conventional MCU. No external resources are required: ample memory, power management, and a secure element are all on-die.
Alif provides scalable 32-bit microcontroller solutions that can support applications across a wide spectrum of use cases.
Quotes from our Partners
We have built a network of partners designed to make your design with an Alif device as seamless as possible.
“Alif is way out in front of the market with the Arm Cortex-M55 based Ensemble family of MCUs. Working closely with their team of expert engineers, we were able to integrate Audio Weaver on the M55. The U55 coprocessor delivers a big performance boost for the Audio Weaver ML Module Pack. This really opens up the possibility for new innovative applications using ML based audio processing.”
“With their scalable SoC compute architecture and integrated AI acceleration, Alif Semiconductor is a game-changer in the semiconductor world. Their solutions are capable of transforming the way businesses operate, and their continued innovation is inspiring. We’re thrilled to have them as a hardware partner.”
“The integrated AI acceleration in Alif Semiconductor’s Ensemble platform enables Sensory’s truly natural engine to run both faster, and with a smaller memory footprint.”
