STMicroelectronics Acquires Edge AI Software Specialist Cartesiam

Article By : STMicroelectronics

STMicroelectronics has reinforced its AI strategy and strengthened its technology portfolio with the acquisition of Cartesiam.

STMicroelectronics has acquired Cartesiam, a software company that specializes in artificial intelligence (AI) development tools enabling machine-learning and inferencing on Arm-based microcontrollers.

Cartesiam’s flagship and patented solution, NanoEdge AI Studio, allows embedded systems designers without prior knowledge in AI to rapidly develop specialized libraries integrating machine-learning algorithms directly into a broad range of applications. Devices leveraging Cartesiam’s technology are already in production around the world included inside connected devices, household appliances, and industrial machines.

With this acquisition, STMicroelectronics reinforces its AI strategy and strengthens its technology portfolio to address the full spectrum of embedded machine-learning needs. The NanoEdge AI Studio solution is fully complementary to STMicroelectronics’ STM32Cube.AI toolset and will provide STMicroelectronics’ customers with additional flexibility to integrate machine-learning into their solution.

“Using artificial intelligence to create ever smarter solutions is one of the priorities of our customers regardless of their size or industry,” said Claude Dardanne, President, Microcontrollers and Digital ICs Group, at STMicroelectronics. “With STM32Cube.AI, STMicroelectronics already offers the ability to map and run pre-trained artificial neural networks on our broad portfolio of STM32 microcontrollers. The addition of Cartesiam’s machine learning technology to STMicroelectronics’ existing solutions will provide the best edge-AI solution portfolio on the market for any customer looking to bring additional innovation to their offering.”
