This New Product Brief (NPB) is part of a video series highlighting the features, applications, and technical specs of newly-released products.

MICROCHIP Machine Learning (579-EV18H79A, 579-EV45Y33)

Microchip Technology’s SAMD21 Machine Learning Evaluation Kits help developers bring AI and machine learning to low-power edge devices. 

The evaluation kits feature a 48MHz SAMD21 Arm Cortex-M0+ MCU, an ATECC608A CryptoAuthentication secure element IC, and an ATWINC1510 Wi-Fi network controller. The kits also feature a high accuracy temperature sensor, light sensor, and an add-on board with a 6-axis IMU. 

The SAMD21 Machine Learning Evaluation Kits help designers gather data to train models and implement edge-based inference. Microchip’s MPLAB X IDE and software toolkits make it easy to use popular frameworks and deploy the trained models to MCUs, MPUs, and FPGAs. This enables much faster development time, and the local learning decreases false positives or negatives, while enabling more scalable machine learning solutions.
