It feels like we were just here last month... Oh wait, that's true! This time, we are happy to announce the new Raspberry Pi AI Kit is now available for pre-order! This kit easily fits atop your Raspberry Pi 5 and allows it access some pretty impressive AI capabilities. We're sure you are as excited as we are to get a closer look at this kit, so let's jump in and take a closer look!

Raspberry Pi AI Kit


The Raspberry Pi AI Kit bundles an M.2-format Hailo 8L AI accelerator with the Raspberry Pi M.2 HAT+ to offer you access to excellent inferencing performance on the Raspberry Pi 5. The AI module is a 13 tera-operations per second (TOPS) neural network inference accelerator built around the Hailo-8L chip. The module uses the M.2 2242 form factor, and comes pre-installed in the M.2 HAT+, to which it connects through an M key edge connector. The M.2 HAT+ communicates between the AI module’s M.2 interface and the Raspberry Pi 5’s PCIe 2.0 interface.

When the host Raspberry Pi 5 is running an up-to-date Raspberry Pi OS image, it automatically detects the Hailo module and makes the NPU available for AI computing tasks. The built-in rpicam-apps camera applications in Raspberry Pi OS natively support the AI module, automatically using the NPU to run compatible post-processing tasks.

SparkFun is very excited to carry the new Raspberry Pi AI Kit. This new kit is a perfect place to grow your experience with Raspberry Pi whether you are an experienced user, a new student, or anything in between. While do not have exact dates for when we are going to be able to start shipping these kits, we expect to start shipping them soon! So make sure to place your order now to reserve your own!
