Chipmaker ARM has announced two new chip designs for AI processing, focused particularly on the internet of things (IoT) devices.

The new designs- the ARM Cortex-M55 and Ethos-U55 are based on Edge AI technology, which basically means processing on a device without a cloud connection, The Verge reports.

The ARM Cortex-M55 promises up to 15x improvement in machine learning and 5x enhanced digital signal processing compared to predecessors. When combined with Ethos-U55 NPU, it can offer another 32x machine learning performance boost.

ARM will not be manufacturing the new designs. It will serve as blueprints for the ARM partners
