    Camera I/F – DVP camera support; two mounting locations (top and bottom of the board)
    Display I/F – Supports for Sipeed 2.4″ QVGA LCD display
    Audio – Built-in microphone
    USB – 1x USB 2.0 Device type C for power and programming
    Expansion
    40-pin Raspberry Pi connector with I2C/UART/SPI/I2S/PWM/GPIO.
    6x Grove connectors: 2x analog, 1x UART, 1x I2C, 1x PWM, 1x digital
    Debugging – 8-pin UART/JTAG header
    Misc – Boot & reset buttons, boot (user programmable) & power LEDs, switch for RPi 5V, on-board 3-axis accelerometer
    Power Supply – 5V via USB type-C port, or Vin pin on Raspberry Pi header
    Dimensions – 83 x 55 mm (4x Raspberry Pi HAT mounting holes)

    Hope this could help both Raspberry Pi and and AI lovers!

Awesome.

Good to the RISC V making an appearance on the scene. And that chip has some great hardware acceleration for neural nets and DSP.

I presume all the RISC V and other dev tools required are available and run on the Pi. I see nothing under the product pages "documents" and "learn" tabs.

It's a shame the 3-axis accelerometer is not a 9 axis accelerometer/gyro/compass. The BOSH BNO055 for example.

Otherwise it all looks great. When can we expect them to be available?

These K210 are some of the best RISC-V chips I have seen for a while and have moved to the top of my want hardware list
Time will tell how the software develops.

Making it into a Pi hat makes development a bit easier than as a standalone like the other K210 boards.
Had not spotted the Arduino tools before, that elevates the usability a few orders of magnitude.

Recently had mixed results installing the RISC-V GCC compiler tool chain.
Also time to revisit the Free Pascal Compiler for RISC-V.

I do hope the Seeed Distributors get some into their stocks soon.

Thanks so much for your interest in Seeed. We are trying the best to listen to community's voice and make it come true by products and services. We will update full docs and prepare the shipment ASAP.
Hope the communuity love our wide selection of Raspberry Pi boards

My preordered one arrived yesterday. It's a well made board. I look forward to there being more information so I can make use of it.
At the current time, their Arduino board definition doesn't seem to be compatible with the armhf version of the Arduino IDE. Ie can't use that on the RPi. I'm hoping the other software interfacing methods work. Otherwise it might just be used as a standalone.
Interestingly they went to a lot of trouble to keep the underside of the board clean, so they are a bit safer to use with an RPi or on its own without as much danger of shorting on something.
It also has a great 40 pin female passthrough connector with holes in the pcb to match.

When putting it on a Jetson nano be wary that the 40 pin connector makes Pi HATs point outward. So rotate, but DO NOT flip the AI HAT over. Ie components up still.

Wonder how the tools will run on a Pi4.
Need dual screens for this sort of stuff.

"If".
I just tried installing the board in Arduino IDE on my PineBook (arm64). Can't install it on that either. When I get a chance I've got a few other SBCs with RPi compatible GPIO headers to try, but I feel the result would be the same. It's a nice bit of hardware but I still can't work out how it actually interacts with a Raspberry Pi.
Even so, I ordered a fisheye camera and TFT because the videos I saw of a related board's object recognition capabilities really got my attention.
I was also hoping to try combining it with a Pi Zero to make an autonomous "Earth rover" for a bit of fun.

I'm just hoping I work out how the AI HAT works before the TFT and camera arrive.

Has anyone got information, photos or videos on how this is supposed to connect to the Pi itself? I've got the board in front of me now and it's not clear whether I need to solder a header.
