Edge AI Semiconductor Advancements Seminar

Add intelligence to your embedded design

Future Electronics invites you to meet experts from Lattice Semiconductor, Microchip, NXP, Renesas and STMicroelectronics to learn how you can easily add local intelligence to your next embedded design project with neural network machine learning models.

Machine learning is increasingly being used for network edge applications across multiple industries to detect anomalies, classify physical activities, recognize humans and objects, as well as respond to voice commands and gestures. These intelligent features offer ways to add fast, efficient and accurate inferencing to your product to increase value and performance.

Our presenters will update you on the latest market advancements and showcase a range of solutions spanning microcontrollers to microprocessors and FPGAs, covering the design flows using their tools and hardware so you can make the design choices that are right for you!

Seminar attendees will have the opportunity to win one of several raffle prizes at the conclusion of the event, and will be eligible to purchase development tools from our participating suppliers at a 10% discount!
