Stephen Su, Senior Product Manager at Arm, presents the “Arm Cortex-M Series Processors Spark a New Era of Use Cases, Enabling Low-cost, Low-power Computer Vision and Machine Learning” tutorial at the May 2022 Embedded Vision Summit.
The Arm Cortex-M processor family of microcontrollers is designed and optimized for cost- and energy-efficient devices, and can be found in a variety of applications such as the internet of things devices, industrial equipment and consumer electronics. As awareness has grown about the benefits of incorporating visual intelligence into systems, there’s increased interest in implementing both classical computer vision and machine learning in cost- and energy-constrained devices such as video doorbells.
In this talk, Su explores the computer vision and machine learning capabilities of Arm’s ultra-low power Cortex-M0+, Cortex-M4 and Cortex-M7 processors with DSP instruction set extensions, as well as the latest Cortex-M55, which delivers tremendous performance and efficiency via the M-profile vector instruction set extensions based on Arm Helium technology. He also showcases how Arm is empowering the entire CV/ML ecosystem—including silicon partners, ISVs, OSVs, developers and OEMs—with reference software and development tools.
