Crescendo™ Family

Overview

Fusion processors & microcontrollers with LTE cellular LPWAN connectivity

 

Single-core to quad-core processing, AI acceleration, LTE Cat-M1/NB1/NB2 wireless, integrated SIM cellular subscriber management, GNSS positioning, and much more

Crescendo Family devices are a scalable and compatible continuum of highly-integrated embedded processors. Architected for efficiency and long battery life, these devices deliver high computation and ML/AI capability, wired and wireless connectivity including LTE IoT cellular, integrated SIM, multi-layered security, computer vision, and highly interactive human-machine interface.

Individual device selections in the family scale up starting from single to dual-core MCUs, advancing to triple and quad-core fusion processors to match specific application needs. Across all devices is a common fabric of features and technology making it easy to re-use software and hardware over varied projects.

Typical Applications

AI and ML Acceleration

Alif's scalable platform family is built on the latest generation embedded processing technology that scales from single Arm® Cortex®-M55 microcontrollers (MCUs) to a new class of multi-core devices, fusion processors, that blend up to two Cortex-M55 MCU cores, up to two Cortex-A32 microprocessors (MPU) cores capable of running high-level operating systems, and up to two Arm Ethos™-U55 microNPUs for AI/ML acceleration.

Image Classification, for 1 inference, M-55 + U-55 is:

  • 800x faster than previous gen Cortex-M
  • 78x faster than M-55 alone (8 vs 624 msec)
  • 76x less energy than M-55 alone (3 vs 228 mJ)
