To be commercialized as the Coral Accelerator Module, the custom designed AI module packages Google’s Edge TPU ASIC within a miniaturized footprint. The companies claim that the module overcomes some of the most pressing challenges in implementing AI by delivering superior noise suppression and simplifying printed circuit board design in a smaller footprint. Miniaturization is key as all board space must be optimized to achieve highly robust functionality in space constrained operations. The result of this collaboration is a system that speeds up the algorithmic calculations required to execute AI.
Coral provides the complete toolkit of hardware components, software tools, and pre-compiled models for building devices with local AI. The AI module is an integral part of the fully integrated Coral platform, which can be implemented in a myriad of applications across numerous industries.
Murata worked closely with Coral to ensure that the AI module helped enable the flexibility, scalability, and compatibility for integration into applications deploying the Coral technology.
