Faster Inferencing with Lower Power Consumption
Design engineers who work with microcontrollers tend to find that they quickly run up against the barriers of performance and power when they try to add AI functionality to a typical embedded control system. The levers to pull when facing performance constraints in a conventional control application are normally CPU frequency and memory: increasing the CPU core’s speed and addressing more memory should result in a predictable uplift in throughput, and reduction in latency.
