We got our Coral TF accelerator chip footprint verified this weekend, so now we’re going to try adding a power supply on the same board. The TPS62827 seems like it might work! You can see our video about spec’ing this part on The Great Search.
Here’s a unified design with a cute USB stick shape. This should give 10x better TensorFlow Lite inferences on a Raspberry Pi, hopefully we can get enough current from the Pi USB – that’s the next thing to verify.
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.
