TI unveils edge AI integrated processors

07 June 2022

Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced a new family of processors targeted at expanding its edge artificial intelligence (AI) processing for next generation applications.

Called AM62, the low power processors allow support for dual-screen displays and small-size human-machine interface (HMI) applications.

TI said the next generation of HMI will bring new ways of interacting with machines such as enabling gesture recognition to give commands in a noisy factory environment or enabling the control of machines by phones or tablets with a wireless connection.

Adding AI features to HMI including machine vision, analytics and predictive maintenance will help enable human-machine interaction. The AM62 processors bring analytics to edge devices at low power with no need for thermal considerations, which give engineers flexibility to deploy capabilities in size-constrained applications or industrial environments.

The AM62 processor brings low-cost analytics to HMI devices by enabling basic camera-based image processing and edge AI functions — detecting and recognizing objects. The processors enable dual screen, full HD displays and support multiple operating systems for both wired and wireless connectivity interfaces.

Additionally, the processors reduce power consumption by as much as 50% compared to other devices. This equates to applications powered by AA batteries to run for more than 1,000 hours.

TI will showcase the AM62 processors and demonstrate solutions for edge AI and electric vehicle charging HMI application at embedded world in Nuremburg, Germany, June 21-23.
