Grove AI HAT for Edge Computing available for pre-orders!!!!

Hey Seeekers!!

At the end of last year, Sipeed released their 64-bit RISC-V MAix module, crowdfunding a range of boards on Indiegogo.

Now we have made the Grove HAT for Raspberry Pi based on the MAix and it is now available for pre-orders!!

So, pre-order yours today to use this HAT in your next IoT projects!!! It will be available around the 15th of June.

Please check here to have a look at the bazaar page of this product.

The Grove AI HAT for Edge Computing is built around Sipeed MAix M1 AI MODULE with Kendryte K210 processor inside. It’s a low cost but powerful Raspberry Pi AI HAT which assists the Raspberry Pi to run AI at the edge. It also can work independently for edge computing applications.

We have released varies SIPEED AI products in the past and we are very excited to release our very own board based on the MAix M1 AI module.

The MAix M1 is a powerful RISC-V 600MHz AI module that features dual-core 64-bit CPU, 230GMULps 16-bit NPU(Neural Network Processor), FPU(Float Point Unit) supports DP&SP, and APU(Audio Processor) supports 8 mics.

In addition to the powerful Kendryte K210 processor, the Grove AI HAT for Edge Computing board provides the following peripherals:

  • I2C
  • UART
  • SPI
  • I2S
  • PWM
  • GPIO

This hat also offers an LCD and a camera interface, which supports the Sipeed 2.4inch QVGA LCD and DVP camera. It will be helpful and convenient with your AI vision project. Just like the Sipeed MAix BiT Kit for RISC-V AI+IoT, we will release a kit with a camera and an LCD soon. For AI voice recognition applications, we have added a high-quality microphone, and for robotics or motion applications, there is an onboard 3-axis accelerometers sensor, which is more accurate and easy to use compared to external sensors.

Also, we decided to enable this hat with the Grove ecosystem by bringing all our hundreds of Grove modules to your AI applications.

We’ve added 6 Grove connectors to this hat, including:

  • 1xDigital I/O
  • 2xAnalog I/O
  • 1xI2C
  • 1xUART
  • 1xPWM

On top of that, based on kendryte-standalone-sdk, we have added the full ArduinoCore-API interface to support Arduino IDE, Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, and other development environments. Which means you can run Grove Arduino Libraries and many excellent Arduino libraries on this board easily.

Here is an hardware overview of this HAT,

We hope this board may help you with your edge computing, AI vision, voice recognition, and other AI projects!!!

So, that is it for this weeks product release. Hope you guys enjoy! Stay tuned for more products that will be releasing in the future!
