Ultra-Low Power Artificial Intelligence (AI) MCUs
Artificial intelligence (AI) is opening up a whole new universe of possibilities, from virtual assistants to self-driving cars, automated factory equipment, and voice recognition in consumer devices. But the computational horsepower to enable these possibilities is extreme and requires expensive, power-hungry, and big processors. In embedded devices, this functionality isn't really available—embedded microcontrollers are too slow to effectively process images and make decisions in real time. Enter Analog Devices’ new line of AI microcontrollers. They run AI inferences hundreds of times faster and lower energy than other embedded solutions. Our built-in neural network hardware accelerator practically eliminates the energy spent on audio and image AI inferences. Now small machines like thermostats, smart watches, and cameras can deliver the promise of AI—embedded devices can see and hear like never before.
