NXP Semiconductors today announced the release of its offline vision solution,
SLN-VIZN-IOT, a comprehensive, integrated development platform that includes a
hardware module design and associated software required to implement offline
face and expression recognition.
Based on NXP's i.MX RT106F crossover
microcontroller, the company's turnkey face and expression recognition
solution enables original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to quickly, easily
and inexpensively incorporate face and expression recognition into a diverse
range of Internet-of-Things (IoT) products.
The solution provides low latency and eliminates the need for cloud connectivity. Additionally it is
designed to remove the cost and overhead associated with an MPU-based system.
The i.MX RT106F leverages NXP's vision processing engine to provide a
breakthrough in price and performance, using a neural network to perform face
detection, recognition and anti-spoofing.
Developers can now take advantage of
NXP's MCU-based solution to offer advanced human machine interface (HMI)
capabilities that can anticipate and personalize the end user's experience
with smart edge devices such as smart appliances, thermostats, lighting,
alarms and power tools.
Pricing and Availability
The SLN-VIZN-IOT development kit is available now, priced at an
MSRP of $199 USD. Find additional details about the kit and i.MX RT106F MCU,

About the i.MX RT106F Crossover Microcontroller
The i.MX RT106F is an EdgeReady solution-specific member of the
i.MX RT106F family of crossover MCUs, targeting low cost embedded face
recognition applications. It features NXP's advanced implementation of the
Arm® Cortex®-M7 core, which operates at speeds up to 600 MHz.
The i.MX RT106F processor is licensed to run NXP's turnkey face and emotion
recognition software solution, which includes image capture and
pre-processing, face detection, alignment and recognition, with
anti-spoofing and many additional features.In addition to delivering the face recognition capability, the i.MX RT106F
MCU can also be used as the main microcontroller in most IoT product
