The Coral System-on-Module (SoM) is a fully-integrated system that helps you build embedded devices that demand fast machine learning (ML) inferencing. It contains NXP's iMX 8M system-on-chip (SoC), eMMC memory, LPDDR4 RAM, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, but its unique power comes from Google's Edge TPU coprocessor for high-speed machine learning inferencing.

The Edge TPU is a small ASIC designed by Google that provides high-performance ML inferencing with a low power cost. For example, it can execute state-of-the-art mobile vision models such as MobileNet v2 at almost 400 FPS, in a power-efficient manner. This on-device processing reduces latency, increases data privacy, and removes the need for a high-bandwidth connection used to perform ML inferencing in the cloud.
Key benefits of the SoM:
The SoM is also included in the Coral Dev Board, which is a single-board computer that enables fast prototyping and evaluation of the standalone SoM.
