Renesas' factory solution for artificial intelligence (AI) enables the development of an AI unit by offering the following features.

Develop Processing Software for AI

Renesas' solution provides a built-in series of processes from collection to determination and control. Users can develop the processing software for creating intelligence and manage its key functions.

Embed AI Using Open Source Software

Embed and take advantage of the learned neural network in a single day. Open source Caffe and TensorFlow™ software for AI learning can be utilized. There is no programming required, and AI can be easily be incorporated into Renesas MCUs.

Quickly Develop AI with a Reference Design

By providing not only software but also a reference design, it is easy to quickly develop an AI unit.

An AI unit has multiple inputs and outputs, and it can function to facilitate processing (pre-processing) of data for AI judgments, such as sensing using multiple sensors and waveform cutting by trigger signal. The AI unit solution provides a reference design for developing add-on units with various functions that allow for the development of intelligent systems which may be paired with existing manufacturing machines.
