Mehmet Görkem Ülkar, Principal Engineer for AI and Software at Analog Devices, demonstrates the company’s latest edge AI and vision technologies and products at the 2023 Embedded Vision Summit. Specifically, Ülkar demonstrates Analog Devices’ MAX78002 AI-optimized microcontroller.
The MAX78002 is an advanced system-on-chip featuring an Arm Cortex-M4 with FPU CPU for efficient system control, along with an ultra-low-power deep neural-network accelerator. The CNN engine has a weight storage memory of 2MB and can support 1-, 2-, 4-, and 8-bit weights, supporting networks of up to 16 million weights. In addition to the memory in the CNN engine, the MAX78002 has large on-chip system memory for the microcontroller core with 2.5MB flash and up to 384KB SRAM.
Multiple high-speed and low-power communications interfaces are supported, including I2S, MIPI CSI-2 serial camera, parallel camera (PCIF), and SD 3.0/SDIO 3.0/eMMC 4.51 secure digital. You can use the Max 78002 in applications such as factory robots and drone navigation, industrial sensors, process control, inline quality assurance vision systems, smart security cameras, and portable medical diagnostics equipment.
