Coral Edge TPU on Raspberry Pi 5 is now easier to configure!

We're thrilled to announce a significant enhancement for AI developers and enthusiasts using the Google Coral Edge TPU with the Raspberry Pi 5. Our recent contribution of a dedicated device tree overlay (dtoverlay) to the Raspberry Pi kernel has been officially merged in version 6.6.30. This integration signifies that users no longer need to manually modify the device tree overlay after each kernel update, streamlining the setup process considerably.

What Does This Mean for You?

Enabling the Pineboards Hat AI on your Raspberry Pi 5 is now more straightforward than ever. By simply adding dtoverlay=pineboards-hat-ai to your configuration, the system will automatically recognize the AI hardware, allowing you to dive straight into your projects without the hassle of manual setups. This change is not just a time-saver but also ensures that your configurations are stable and repeatable, ideal for both experimentation and production deployments.
