Seeed has launched a $24.50 “Grove AI HAT” with 6x Grove interfaces and Arduino IDE support for accelerating edge AI workloads on the Raspberry Pi. The HAT features a Sipeed MAix M1 module running a Kendryte K210 RISC-V neural processing chip.
Neural acceleration chips seem to be everywhere these days — built into SoCs such as Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 or available in acceleration chips built on to add-on boards, such as Google’s Edge TPU chip found on its Coral Dev Board or Aaeon’s Intel/Movidius Myriad X-based AI Core X M.2 and mini-PCIe modules. Now, Seeed has opened pre-orders for a Grove AI HAT for Edge Computing add-on for the Raspberry Pi equipped with a dual-core, Kendryte K210 (translated) RISC-V processor designed to assist the Pi in accelerating AI inference on the edge.
