- Memory – 8MB PSRAM (from AP Memory)
- Storage – 16MB SPI NOR flash and MicroSD card slot
- Display I/F – 40-pin FPC connector for LCD RGB565 or RGB888 displays
- Camera – 24-pin FPC connector for DCMI camera (OV2640)
- Audio – 12-pin FPC connector for audio
- Connectivity – Dual-band 2.4GHz / 5GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.1
- Expansion – Feather compatible header with 6x analog pins, 14x digital pins, 1x UART, 1x I2C, and ICSP programming signals
- Power Supply – 5V/3A via USB Type-C port
- Dimensions – 70.3 x 26mm
- Weight – 9 grams
I could not find any wiki for the board, but Seeed Studio says it is supported by X-CUBE-AI AI expansion pack for STM32CubeMX “capable of interoperating with popular deep learning libraries to convert any artificial neural network for Wio Lite AI to run optimized inferences”. More specifically, the expansion pack supports deep learning frameworks such as Keras and TensorFlow Lite, as well as all frameworks that can export to the ONNX standard format including PyTorch, Microsoft Cognitive Toolkit, MATLAB, and others. The company is also working on porting the STM32H725A board to the Arduino IDE to make it easier for beginners.
Typical applications for the board include data collection devices for Machine Learning, hand-held device IoT controllers, STEM education, motor drive and application control, alarm systems, video intercom, and HVAC. So it’s not only for AI vision applications…
Seeed Studio’s Wio Lite AI development board is up for pre-order now for $29 with shipping scheduled to start on September 20, 2021.
