BrainChip Holdings Ltd (ASX:BRN)(OTCQX:BRCHF)(ADR:BCHPY), the world’s first commercial producer of ultra-low power, fully digital, event-based, neuromorphic AI IP, today announced it has validated that its Akida™ processor family integrates with the Arm® Cortex®-M85 processor, unlocking new levels of performance and efficiency for next-generation intelligent edge devices.
Arm Cortex-M85 delivers the highest levels of performance in the Arm Cortex-M family. It enables system developers to build the most sophisticated variety of MCUs and embedded SoCs for IoT and embedded applications that require enhanced digital signal processing (DSP) and machine learning (ML) capabilities. Use cases include smart home devices, robotics, and drone control, secured system controllers and sensor hubs. By successfully demonstrating Akida’s capabilities with the Arm Cortex-M85 in a fully functioning environment, BrainChip paves the way for a new generation of intelligent edge devices that are capable of delivering unprecedented levels of performance and functionality, built on leading-edge technology from Arm.
“In order to serve the diverse and growing IoT market, developers require a new standard of secure, high-performance microcontrollers, combined with endpoint ML capabilities,” said Paul Williamson, SVP and GM, IoT Line of Business at Arm. “The integration of Arm’s highest performance microcontroller with the Akida portfolio enables our partners to deliver on this potential and efficiently handle advanced machine learning workloads.”
The integration of Akida and the Arm Cortex-M85 processor is an important step forward for BrainChip, demonstrating the company’s commitment to developing cutting-edge AI solutions that deliver exceptional performance and efficiency.
“We are delighted Akida can now seamlessly integrate with the Arm Cortex-M85 processor, which is one of the most advanced and efficient MCU platforms available for intelligent IoT,” said Nandan Nayampally, CMO of BrainChip. “This is a significant milestone for BrainChip, as it drives new possibilities for high-performance, low-power AI processing at the edge. We are excited to offer our mutual customers the benefits of this powerful combination of technologies.”
