Important: The Raspberry Pi AI Kit is available for pre-order. Orders will be fulfilled in the order they are received. If you are ordering this product alongside "Live/in-stock" products and want to receive these products ASAP, be sure to designate your order for split shipments in checkout. Due to global supply chain shortages, we cannot guarantee dates for when we will receive stock of this product.

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.

Please Be Aware: This is a M.2 HAT+ for devices that use the M.2 specification. The SparkFun MicroMod line uses a different pinout despite fitting in the same connector as M.2 devices. The MicroMod line does not work with this HAT.
