The Coral Mini PCIe Accelerator is a PCIe module that brings the Edge TPU coprocessor to existing systems and products.
The Edge TPU is a small ASIC designed by Google that provides high performance ML inferencing with low power requirements: it's capable of performing 4 trillion operations (tera-operations) per second (TOPS), using 0.5 watts for each TOPS (2 TOPS per watt). For example, it can execute state-of-the-art mobile vision models such as MobileNet v2 at almost 400 FPS, in a power efficient manner. This on-device processing reduces latency, increases data privacy, and removes the need for constant high-bandwidth connectivity.
The Mini PCIe Accelerator is a half-size Mini PCIe card designed to fit in any standard Mini PCIe slot. This form-factor enables easy integration into ARM and x86 platforms so you can add local ML acceleration to products such as embedded platforms, mini-PCs, and industrial gateways.
