Edge Impulse’s EON Compiler is the 2021 Edge AI and Vision Product of the Year Award Winner in the Edge AI Developer Tools category. The Edge Impulse EON compiler accelerates embedded machine learning (ML) code to run faster on your neural network in 25-55% less RAM and up to 35% less flash memory, while retaining the same accuracy, compared to TensorFlow Lite for Microcontrollers. EON achieves this performance by compiling neural networks to C++, unlike other embedded solutions using generic interpreters, thus eliminating complex code, device power, and precious time. The EON compiler represents the new standard for tinyML developers seeking to bring better-embedded technologies to the market.

On behalf of the entire Edge Impulse team, we are thrilled to be named the recipient of this year’s Best Edge AI Developer Tool award. The last several months have been a pivotal time for AI at the edge and we are honored to receive the recognition of the industry. None of this, however, would be possible without our growing developer community and incredible ecosystem of partners and customers. Given memory being such a scarce resource on most microcontroller-based devices, we designed EON to enable users to significantly reduce RAM and ROM on their ML models without having to worry about losing accuracy or increasing latency. That’s why we believe our compiler will serve as a new standard tool for developers and enterprises looking to build real-world ML solutions.
