The movement for more and more IoT end point devices to possess AI capabilities is picking up steam. In order for this to happen, edge devices need to be powerful enough to support a distributed AI type model. This means they must be equipped with enough compute resources, most notably, memory. To be truly AI-capable, most IoT end point devices will have to process almost all of their data locally. The article which follows provides an excellent update on what the marketplace is doing to put the right level of compute resources into IoT edge devices.
The evolution of edge computing means that internet of things (IoT) devices need more smarts to make decisions rather just shipping data to be crunched to the cloud — this means that more memory is required without increasing its footprint.
Adesto Technologies’ latest non-volatile memory (NVM) family is aimed at both consumer and industrial IoT devices that need to be able to do more than just ship data off to the cloud. Dubbed FusionHD, it’s an extension of the company Fusion family but with more intelligence at low power and increased density.
