Dirk Seidel, Strategic Business Development Manager at Renesas Electronics, demonstrates the company’s latest edge AI and vision technologies and products at the December 2022 Edge AI and Vision Innovation Forum. Specifically, Seidel demonstrates the company’s MPU RZ/V series solutions, along with partner (and fellow Alliance Member) Avnet’s RZ/V2L single-board computer (SBC).
The RZ/V series includes a power-efficient AI accelerator, the DRP-AI. The entry-class RZ/V2L device delivers low power and high performance when running fellow Alliance Member company Edge Impulse’s FOMO object detection model on the Renesas EVK, as well as when running a multiple-person pose estimation model on the Avnet RZ/V2L (a SBC in the Raspberry Pi form factor), all without need of a fan or heat sink. Seidel also demonstrates the newly-released TVM development tool for the DRP-AI, running the DeepPose facial landmark model.
