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. Arm NN converts models trained with existing neural network frameworks into inference engines that leverage Arm Neon™ instructions via the Arm Compute Library. The latest release supports Caffe, TensorFlow, TensorFlow Lite, and ONNX models. In September 2018, Arm donated Arm NN to the Linaro Machine Intelligence Initiative, where it is now developed fully in open source and provided under the MIT license.
NOTE: This is currently available as Beta early-release software, with general availability (GA) release expected in late 2019.
