Premiere of Raspberry Pi AI Kit!

Reading time: 2 min.

We recently announced the release of a new product from Raspberry (Raspberry Pi M.2 HAT+) , and we are already pleased to announce the next one! This time we have quite a treat for AI enthusiasts – if you are interested in this topic, plus you are a Raspberry Pi 5 user (or intend to be), this post will certainly interest you. Without further ado – we present the Raspberry Pi AI Kit!

Raspberry Pi AI Kit - specifications

We start with the complete basics – namely, the specific specifications of the title device.
Raspberry Pi AI Kit
is a kit that consists of the AI gas pedal Hailo 8L in M.2 format (its inference performance is up to 13 trillion operations per second) and the overlay itself Raspberry Pi M.2 HAT+. For proper operation of the product, of course, we need our “star”, i.e.Raspberry Pi 5 (to be purchased separately).

The operating systems that AI Kit supports are Linux and Windows, while AI frameworks include TensorFlow, TensorFlow Lite, Keras, PyTorch, ONNX .

A few words about the AI Hailo 8L itself: it features high energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness, and comes with a 2-line PCIe Gen-3.0 interface.

It is worth noting that the kit is compatible with the Raspberry Pi HAT+ specification, and the ambient operating temperature should be between 0℃ and 50℃. Overlay dimensions M.2 HAT+ Are 65 x 56.5 mm.

Raspberry Pi AI Kit is particularly recommended for those using AI to create complex projects, for example, and wherever there is a need for fast and efficient data processing.

It provides an uncomplicated, cost-effective and energy-efficient way to integrate high-performance artificial intelligence. It will find applications in process control, security, home automation and robotics.

The AI module is designed to speed up neural networks.

It has the M.2 2242 format and comes pre-installed in M.2 HAT+, to which it connects via an M.2 edge connector, while the M.2 The HAT+ mediates communication between the AI module and the PCIe 2.0 interface on the Raspberry Pi 5.

When the Raspberry Pi 5 runs the latest Raspberry Pi OS, it automatically recognizes the Hailo module and makes the NPU available for artificial intelligence tasks. The Raspberry Pi OS’s built-in rpicam-apps automatically use the AI module, using the NPU to perform compatible post-processing tasks. Simple, isn’t it?

Raspberry Pi AI Kit - what else is worth knowing about?

Getting started with the AI Kit is very simple. It is definitely made easier by the fact that you get a product that is immediately ready to connect to the Raspberry Pi 5. Thanks to full integration with the Raspberry Pi camera software, full compatibility is ensured, so you can quickly start working on artificial intelligence projects in the field of vision.

The kit includes, in addition to the AI module and M.2 overlays HAT+ Also included are dedicated screws, spacers for easy installation and a GPIO connector.
