eIQ software supports the Arm
NN SDK – an inference engine framework that provides a bridge between neural network (NN) frameworks and Arm
machine learning processors, including NXP’s i.MX and Layerscape® processors.
For Arm® Cortex®-A based processors, Arm NN converts models trained with existing neural network
frameworks into inference engines that leverage Arm Neon™ instructions via the Arm Compute Library.
NXP provides back-end support for Arm NN to allow inferencing to be run on the i.MX 8 GPUs and the i.MX 8M Plus NPU.
Arm NN works with Caffe, TensorFlow, TensorFlow Lite, and ONNX models.
