Google Coral

Very small computers with surprising computing power are changing the face of AI learning and research. One recent entry to the category is the Coral Dev Board by Google. The Coral Dev Board contains a Google Edge TPU module a very small (three will easily fit on a penny), low-power-consumption chip that is Google's answer to providing basic AI capabilities to low-power edge devices.

An Edge TPU is optimized for running TensorFlow Lite, the version of Google's AI development language intended for execution on edge and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. It contains an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) designed to run TensorFlow.

The Coral Dev Board is actually a stack of boards, with a base board featuring an ARM Cortex A53, topped by the Edge TPU board and a USB accelerator board. The board's design also allows for expansion to include additional boards with other capabilities.

The Coral Dev Board is available from numerous electronics sources for about $149.
