New Redpine’s QueSSence combines AI and Edge IoT in Secure Platform

Mouser Electronics, Inc., the New Product Introduction (NPI) leader empowering innovation, is now shipping the QueSSence Intelligent Connected Platform from Redpine Signals. QueSSence is an ultra-low-power, edge-based artificial intelligence (AI) application development platform that consists of hardware, software and secure cloud technologies.

The Redpine Signals QueSSence platform, available from Mouser Electronics, combines AI and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies to help engineers develop AI applications. Based on a low-power Arm Cortex-M4 processor with a floating point unit (FPU) and an AI accelerator, the platform features large computation capacity required by AI algorithms. The QueSSence platform’s 6-axis accelerometer and gyroscope enables engineers to easily integrate sensor data, and with 400 Kbytes of RAM and up to 4 Mbytes of dedicated flash memory, the platform can store up to 25,000 sensor values. Support for voice activity detection (VAD) and up to eight capacitive touch sensor inputs enable AI applications that incorporate voice and touch interfaces.

QueSSence can serve a wide range of IoT applications through certified support for multiple wireless protocols, including 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, dual-mode Bluetooth 5, 802.15.4 (capable of running Thread or Zigbee), and 802.11ah. The platform offers multiple levels of security, including physically unclonable function (PUF), crypto hardware accelerators, and secure bootloader to create a highly secure system.
