Efinix released the TinyML platform for AI acceleration on its range of FPGAs. The platform works with the high performance and Linux-capable Sapphire RISC-V processor. Comprising a model profiler and GUI for accelerator selection, the platform delivers an accelerated AI capability to the quad-core-capable Sapphire core. It leverages the RISC-V custom instruction capability to deliver a scalable library of accelerated instructions customized for the requirements of the chosen TensorFlow Lite model. Instructions vary in complexity and size and can be selected through a GUI to deliver the resource / acceleration tradeoff needed for the end user’s application.
The optoNCDT 1760-1000 long-range laser sensor by Micro-Epsilon also measures at distances of up to 2m with up to 7.5kHz.
