Anthony Huereca, Systems Engineer at NXP Semiconductors, demonstrates the company’s latest edge AI and vision technologies and products at the 2023 Embedded Vision Summit. Specifically, Huereca demonstrates AI functions running on NXP’s low-power microcontrollers (MCUs).
NXP’s new MCX N MCU, which includes the NXP-developed eIQ Neutron NPU, delivers an approximately 40x inference performance improvement when running a face detection demo NPU-accelerated versus solely on the CPU. Huereca then demonstrates a complete smart human-machine interface (HMI) solution based on the i.MX RT117H crossover MCU. This second demo showcases both facial recognition and voice detection running at the edge on a single device.
