Machine Learning Comes to #BadgeLife with Adafruit’s EdgeBadge – Hackster.io
Earlier this year, we wrote about Adafruit porting TensorFlow Lite to the Arduino IDE. At the time, they demonstrated voice recognition using their PyGamer board and an add-on microphone. Adafruit’s newest board is the EdgeBadge, which is about the size of a credit card (~86 mm x ~54 mm). It is a follow-on to the PyGamer, which means it comes with an Arm Cortex-M4F running at 120 MHz with 192 KB of RAM and 512 KB of flash. The goal is to run TensorFlow Lite on this small development platform. For that reason, the EdgeBadge also includes a 2 MB QPSI flash. You can use the extra flash for stuff like sounds, images, or TensorFlow Lite files.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
