Today we are excited to announce official support for the Alif Ensemble Development kit.

The Ensemble platform is the first implementation of the Arm Ethos-U55 micro neural processing unit (microNPU) and Cortex-M55 low-power MCU. The Ensemble development kit features:

  • Cortex-M55 MCU + Ethos-U55 NPU intended for high-power, low-latency inferencing
  • Cortex-M55 MCU + Ethos-U55 NPU intended for high-efficiency, continuous monitoring tasks
  • MIPI camera and LCD interface
  • Dual MEMS microphones

The high-power core shows impressive performance, able to run our FOMO object detection architecture with less than one millisecond of inferencing latency! Meanwhile, the high-efficiency core excels in continuous environmental sensing in battery-powered applications.

Data ingestion, algorithm development, and model deployment to either core is fully supported in Edge Impulse.
