Mouser Electronics Announces Global Collaboration with Edge Impulse to Expand Access to Machine Learning Development


Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components™, is pleased to announce a new global partnership with Edge Impulse, a cutting-edge development platform that enables machine learning (ML) on edge devices, providing advanced intelligence to a wide range of products and devices, from low-power MCUs to efficient Linux CPU targets and GPUs.

This collaboration represents a major milestone for the electronics industry, as it brings hardware and AI/ML closer together, combining the market-leading platform and tools of Edge Impulse with Mouser’s expansive range of compatible hardware products. It showcases Mouser’s dedication to innovation and will contribute to the growth of edge-based ML solutions, as well as open-source projects and use cases. Mouser customers can gain easy online access to the Edge Impulse software platform through relevant product microsites and learn more about how they can use ML to empower their designs. Similarly, Edge Impulse users will have convenient access to compatible hardware, including microcontrollers and development kits, directly from Mouser.

“Our partnership with Edge Impulse is an exciting proposition for both companies, as well as the wider engineering community,” states Kevin Hess, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Mouser Electronics. “Its innovative platform is revolutionizing ML at the edge, making it accessible for a wide range of users, from individuals to large corporations. Teaming up with Edge Impulse allows us to provide its users with easy access to the hardware they need, at the scale they desire.”

“We are thrilled about Edge Impulse’s alliance with Mouser Electronics, which accelerates our mission of empowering enterprises and developers worldwide with cutting-edge AI tools,” says Zach Shelby, CEO and co-founder of Edge Impulse. “Mouser’s global reach and industry-leading distribution services of electronic components make it the perfect partner to help us promote edge AI development to all industries.”

The surge in popularity of edge ML and artificial intelligence (AI) solutions in industries such as manufacturing, healthcare, and consumer electronics underscores the significance of engineers having access to effective development platforms and appropriate products. Edge Impulse, which holds the distinction of being the foremost industry leader in ML, is empowering developers to leverage real-world data to create and optimize solutions. Its platform streamlines deployment and scaling and enables rapid implementation. As a hardware-agnostic solution, Edge Impulse enables engineers and students to develop sophisticated ML and AI solutions, leveraging a variety of hardware options to expand the range of applications.

This global collaboration is designed to remove barriers preventing edge AI and ML development and simplify access to hardware products, streamlining development. The partnership builds on previous successful collaborations between the two companies, initially with BrickML, a standalone tool designed by Edge Impulse and manufactured by Reloc. This system-on-module (SoM) allows engineers to develop and deploy ML at the edge and is exclusively distributed through Mouser. In addition to BrickML, Mouser used Edge Impulse in its captivating pest detection exhibit demonstration, showcased at recent trade shows in EMEA.
