ROHM recently announced its new AI accelerator chip BD15035 for edge-AI applications. The chip has an ultra-low-power 3-layer Neural Network and a high-performance 8-bit MCU core that only requires a few tens of milliwatts to function.
Nicla Sense ME is the first sensing solution from Arduino Pro. It integrates AI-enabled smart embedded sensors from Bosch Sensortech and can measure pressure, motion, magnetic field, temperature, humidity and air quality.
Arduino Pro adds Portenta H7 Lite, a stripped down version of Portenta H7, without the high resolution video interface and Wi-Fi and Bluetooth features. H7 Lite costs $31 less than H7, and is aimed at more affordable IoT and Industry 4.0 solutions.
XIAO-RP2040 is a new microcontroller development board from Seeed Studio. The small form-factor board features a dual-core ARM Cortex M0+ CPU and supports Arduino, Micropython and CircuitPython. It only costs USD 5.4.
