Hat Ai!

Coral Edge TPU HAT. Supports other M.2 E-Key PCIe devices in 2230 format. Compatible with Raspberry Pi 5.


Packaging contents

- Hat Ai! board
- 40mm PCIe FPC cable with controlled impedance
- 4 standoffs
- 1 M.2 drive standoff
- 9 M2.5 screws

Assembly instructions

  1. Begin with inserting the FPC ribbon cable into your board. Use the alignment triangle to determine the proper direction, check the picture above for reference.
  2. Insert your Edge TPU using the provided standoff.
  3. Attach 4 metal standoffs to the board using M2.5 screws.
  4. Insert the PCIe cable into your Pi 5.
  5. Install the board underneath your Pi 5. Please note that the TPU should be facing the Pi 5. If you install the board incorrectly it will not turn on.
  6. Power on the board, the PWR LED should be now on. If this is not the case please update the firmware on your Pi 5 or enable PCIe (check tutorials below).


Google Coral Edge TPU needs the Gasket kernel driver. Please check our installation tutorial listed below. We recommend regularly updating the firmware to benefit from constantly improving PCIe compatibility.


Hat Ai! is compatible with Raspberry Pi 5 and other Single Board Computers with the 16-pin PCIe connector (for instance the Radxa 5C/5C Lite).
