Hailo-8™ M.2 AI Acceleration Module

Step Up Your Edge Product Performance with Best-In-Class AI Processor Packaged in A Module

Product Inquiry

The Hailo-8™ M.2 Module is an AI accelerator module for AI applications, compatible with NGFF M.2 form factor M, B+M and A+E keys. The AI module is based on the 26 tera-operations per second (TOPS) Hailo-8™ AI processor with high power efficiency. The M.2 AI accelerator features a full PCIe Gen-3.0 2-lane interface (4-lane in M-key module), delivering unprecedented AI performance for edge devices. The M.2 module can be plugged into an existing edge device with M.2 socket to execute in real-time and with low power deep neural network inferencing for a broad range of market segments. Leveraging Hailo’s comprehensive Dataflow Compiler and its support for standard AI frameworks, customers can easily port their Neural Network models to the Hailo-8 and introduce high-performance AI products to the market quickly.
