Adafruit has announced the imminent availability of its new TensorFlow Lite for Micro-controllers Kit, which will soon be available to purchase price of $44.95. The new kit uses the PyBadge as an edge processor, offering makers, developers and enthusiasts a small credit card -sized development board powered by the ATSAMD51 chip with 512KB of flash and 192KB of RAM. Adafruit has also added 2 MB of QSPI flash for file or asset storage.
“Machine learning has come to the ‘edge’ – small micro-controllers that can run a very miniature version of TensorFlow Lite to do ML computations. But you don’t need super complex hardware to start developing your own TensorFlow models! We’ve curated a simple kit to dip your toes into machine learning waters.”
