Bringing A New Ethos To The Internet Of …
ARM has leveraged their low power designs to bring unheard of security to the IoT as well as the processing power of their various Cortex chips, with today offering details on two designs which they hope will be attractive to customers. The Cortex-M55 is a familiar general purpose low power CPU blueprint, while the Ethos-U55 is something newer. It is a micro Neural Processing Unit which works in tandem with a Cortex processor to handle any and all neural-network mathematics, purpose designed to efficiently handle for various neural network algorithms and to decompress trained INT8 models on the fly.
Join The Register as they delve into these two chips as well as the larger Ethos-N77 processor.
Deep-learning systems destined for these low-end microNPU-powered devices can be developed in any framework as long as it is eventually exported as a TensorFlow Lite or PyTorch Mobile model.
