Last March, Google took the unveiled Coral, a collection of hardware development kits and accessories intended to bolster AI development at the edge. It
launched in select regions in beta before graduating to a wider release in 36 countries last October.
Ahead of the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show, Google announced new additions to the Coral family that’ll become available later in the year.
First up is the Coral Accelerator Module, a multi-chip package that encapsulates Google’s Edge tensor processing unit (TPU). The module exposes both PCIe and USB interfaces and can easily integrate into custom PCB designs, and the tech giant says it’s been working closely with manufacturing partner Murata ready the module for shipment in Q1 or Q2 2020.
