- TDK’s new group company Qeexo launches AutoML for Arm Keil MDK
- Qeexo AutoML enables end-to-end embedded machine learning and development workflows with QeexoAutoML and Arm Keil MDK
- Qeexo AutoML automatically builds machine learning solutions optimized for ARM processors
March 14, 2023
TDK Corporation (TSE 6762) announced the availability of the first automated ML platform integration for Arm Keil MDK from Qeexo, a TDK group company. The Qeexo AutoML platform supports a wide range of machine learning algorithms and is designed for lightweight Cortex-M0 to -M4 class processors with ultra-low latency and power consumption. The platform allows customers to leverage sensor data to rapidly build and deploy machine learning solutions. The Qeexo AutoML platform requires an incredibly small memory footprint, making it optimal for applications in industrial, IoT, wearables, automotive, mobile, and other highly constrained environments.
Qeexo AutoML’s integration for Arm Keil MDK supports seamless, streamlined, end-to-end embedded machine learning development workflows, enabling integration of output libraries from Qeexo AutoML. The integration encapsulates the ML model into the Arm Keil IDE using the CMSIS-Pack mechanism for running the final custom binary application on an Arm Cortex based MCU. Qeexo AutoML provides a no-code environment, enabling data collection and training of different machine learning algorithms, including both neural networks and non-neural-networks, to the same dataset. It generates metrics for each (accuracy, memory size and latency), so that users can pick the model that best fits their unique requirements. Qeexo AutoML streamlines intuitive process automation, enabling customers without precious ML resources to design Edge AI capabilities for their own specific applications.
“As machine learning (ML) becomes increasingly prevalent in embedded and IoT, it’s critical that we empower embedded software developers to navigate this new area and continue to innovate,” said Reinhard Keil, senior director, embedded technology, Arm. “By abstracting the entire ML development process with a powerful and easy-to-use graphical user interface, Qeexo AutoML enables rapid build, test, and deployment of ML models to Arm Keil MDK allowing embedded and IoT developers to harness the power of ML as they build new solutions on Arm.”
Sang Lee, CEO, Qeexo noted, “Qeexo AutoML’s integration with Arm Keil MDK closes the gap between machine learning and embedded development, enabling effortless integration of Qeexo AutoML models to any Arm Keil MDK project.”
Qeexo AutoML with Arm Keil MDK support will be available at the end of Q1 2023.
TDK will present magnetic solutions, sensors, and embedded motor control solutions as well as power supply solutions, components, and software for Internet-of-Things applications at Embedded World 2023 exhibition and conference, March 14-16, 2023, at the Nürnberg Messe, Nürnberg, Germany, and can be found at Hall 1 – #1- 550. Qeexo will demonstrate their machine learning platform solution within the TDK booth and showcase their full range of technology solutions within the Arm pavilion Hall 4 – #4-504.
