Multiple & reconfigurable connectivity functions to expedite your AI/ML System. Easy-to-use hardware platform for multimodal AI/ML solutions based on the RA4E1 MCU from the RA Family of 32-bit MCUs.

The hardware platform is intended to be used for different kinds of AI/ML single or multimodal use cases supporting Realtime Analytics. It enables various combinations of different plug-in sensors in combination with the onboard available analog microphones.

It is supported by Reality AI Software for Realtime Analytics, and by the Renesas Ready Partner Network for specific use cases.

The AI Kit will enable you to evaluate and test the available application examples, but also develop your own solutions by using the available ecosystem and AI/ML software.
