In the News Article: A New RISC-V-Based AI HAT For The Raspberry Pi From Seeed Studio

By March 8, 2019May 12th, 2021No Comments

Towards the tail end of last year, Sipeed released their 64-bit RISC-V MAix module, crowdfunding a range of boards on Indiegogo. Now Seeed Studio is going to make a Grove HAT for Raspberry Pi based on the MAix.
The Sipeed MAix module is based on the Kendryte K210 processor, which has two 64-bit RISC-V CPU cores, each with a built-in independent FPU, and 8Mb of SRAM. It also has an onboard neural network processor (KPU) for supporting machine vision applications at up to 60fps for QVGA, and 30fps for VGA. Alongside this is an audio processor (APU) with support for up to 8 microphones at sampling rates up to 192KHz, with Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) hardware acceleration.
There’s actually been a lot of support work done by Kendryte around the K210, including support for FreeRTOS and TensorFlow, and the Sipeed MAix module, with MicroPython support and documentation. So it’s really rather intriguing to see Seeed Studio preparing themselves to offer it as a Raspberry Pi HAT.
