In the fast-evolving world of electronics engineering and product development, staying ahead of the curve is essential. That’s why we’re thrilled to announce the launch of the Hummingboard 8P Edge AI Single Board Computer. This groundbreaking deployment-ready solution provides engineers with everything they need to considerably reduce time to market for new products capable of powerful AI inference at the edge.
Unleashing the Power of Edge AI
Based on a unique iteration of our popular Hummingboard development platform and equipped with an i.MX 8M Plus SOM and Hailo-8 AI processor, this groundbreaking combo is capable of delivering up to 28 TOPS (26 TOPs from Hailo-8 and 2 from i.MX8M Plus) of processing power while drawing a mere 10 watts of power. This exceptional performance-to-power ratio opens doors to a new era of edge AI solutions, all seamlessly powered over PoE.
What sets the Hummingboard 8P Edge AI SBC apart is the Hailo-8 AI accelerator’s proprietary dataflow architecture. Unlike most neural processors, Hailo-8 excels in low-power memory access, thanks to its purpose-built pipeline elements and distributed memory fabric. This means faster and more efficient AI inferencing at the edge.
Framework Compatibility and Flexibility
Engineers and developers will appreciate the out-of-the-box support for popular AI frameworks like TensorFlow, TensorFlow Lite, Keras, PyTorch, and ONNX. This flexibility allows you to dive straight into your AI projects without worrying about framework compatibility issues.
Additionally, the Hummingboard 8P Edge AI offers the flexibility to run lightweight machine learning models on the i.MX 8M Plus SOM’s embedded network accelerator and complex models on the Hailo-8 AI accelerator. This versatility opens endless possibilities for AI application development and testing.
Everything You Need, Ready to Go
Everything you need to get started comes with the kit, including a comprehensive Board Support Package (BSP) pre-loaded on an SD card. This ensures a quick and hassle-free setup, enabling you to start testing AI models with the Hailo-8 processor in no time.
