The Raspberry Pi AI Kit bundles an M.2-format Hailo 8L AI accelerator with the Raspberry Pi M.2 HAT+ to provide an accessible, cost-effective, and power-efficient way to integrate high-performance AI with the Raspberry Pi 5. Explore applications including process control, security, home automation and robotics.

Check out Raspberry Pi's news article to learn more about this bundle!

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.

The bundle is supplied with a 16mm stacking header and spacers/screws to enable the M.2 HAT+ to be fitted to a Raspberry Pi 5 with the Raspberry Pi Active Cooler (sold separately) in place. A thermal pad is pre-fitted between the module and the M.2 HAT+.

This bundle also fits perfectly into our Layer Case for Raspberry Pi M.2 HAT+ & Active Cooler.

Notes

  • Unfortunately at this time we are unable to offer the Hailo 8L accelerator on its own (without the M.2 HAT+) as a standalone product.
  • Compatible with Raspberry Pi 5 only
  • Raspberry Pi 5 not included
