Raspberry Pi partners with Hailo to Launch AI Kit for RPi 5

Raspberry Pi partners

Raspberry Pi partners with Hailo to create an AI Kit for the Raspberry Pi 5.

This kit is an affordable and power-efficient option for those interested in AI, particularly neural networks and machine learning.

Priced at just $70, the kit uses Raspberry Pi’s M.2 HAT+ connection and a Hailo-8L AI accelerator module. It delivers 13 TOPS (tera-operations per second) and consumes around a watt of power for every three TOPS, with a maximum of five watts but usually around one or two watts for typical tasks, according to Raspberry Pi’s CTO Avi Baum.

Raspberry Pi’s CEO, Eben Upton,, mentioned that they chose a separate accelerator instead of an integrated Neural Processing Unit to keep the single-board computers affordable, as the Raspberry Pi 5 costs only $80.

A key feature of the kit is that most of the computing is done on the Pi itself, reducing the need for cloud backup and constant internet connectivity.

How Does the Hailo-8L Compare?

Raspberry Pi partners with Hailo to balance performance, price, and power consumption in their new product. But how does it compare to other options?

The Hailo-8L is a simpler version of the Hailo-8, offering 13 TOPS of performance compared to the 26 TOPS of the original.

Other companies like Qualcomm, Intel, and AMD have released chips with higher performance, offering 45, 48, and 50 TOPS, respectively. However, these are likely much more expensive. Setting up an advanced neural network for around $130 is something only Raspberry Pi partners with Hailo can currently offer.
