NXP & ClearBlade – Leading the Edge Compute Revolution
February 28, 2018
NXP & ClearBlade deliver cutting-edge Machine Learning (ML) capable solutions to IoT developers for smart, secure and aware edge nodes.
NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ:NXPI), an embedded semiconductor leader serving customers across a broad spectrum of applications and markets, today at a press conference at Embedded World 2018, unfolded its robust edge-compute portfolio to strengthen and advance consumer and industrial IoT system solution development.
“The edge computing future demands high-performance compute together with secure data collection, management, and decision-making,” said Geoff Lees, senior vice president and general manager of microcontrollers at NXP. “With our track record of success in embedded processing and rapidly expanding ecosystem partnerships, we’ve got edge node computing covered.”
Compute Solutions for Smarter Edge Nodes
NXP brings together the building blocks of high performance compute with its portfolio of scalable embedded processors that are optimal for thousands of edge nodes applications.
Intelligence at the Edge
Simplifying end-to-end machine learning, NXP and ClearBlade Edge Compute is assisting customers to build optimized neural networks for their specific machine learning challenges. In collaboration with Au-Zone, a leading supplier of Machine Learning and embedded Computer Vision tools, NXP customers can now use existing network topologies, or quickly design, train and optimize new networks for deployment across the breadth of NXP’s portfolio. The networks generated by Au-Zone’s easy-to-use DeepView ML toolkit and run-time inference engine can be directly integrated into the design flow of NXP’s Software Development Kit (SDK).
New Security Devices and Solutions
As a leading provider of security devices and solutions, NXP extends its expertise to provide end-end security from the edge node to the gateway and the cloud.
NXP is raising-the-bar with new security platform for connected MCUs.
The platform includes high throughput cryptographic sub-system, authenticated boot, threat detection & response, secure resource domain controller, and enablement for secure Over-the-Air (OTA) updates. Complementing on-chip security features, NXP and B-Secur, a leader in biometric authentication, are demonstrating an innovative authentication solution that uses individual’s unique heart pattern (ECG) for identity, making systems more secure than using fingerprint or voice.
NXP at Embedded World and IoT Edge Corridor Experience
The A71CH is designed for use in the smart home and industrial applications including sensor networks, gateways, IP cameras, smart cities and home appliances. NXP will showcase its latest solutions including the A71CH for mutual authentication and cloud onboarding, connected cars, and industrial systems at Embedded World 2018 at the NXP booth, #4A-220.
A highlight of the show will be the NXP IoT Edge Compute Experience, Powered by ClearBlade is located at the entrance of hall 4A at Embedded World 2018 event.
