Interfacing to a compute platform board

Hi- We are designing our compute platform where we want to plug in this AI board with mini PCIe connector. Can you please share the mini PCIE interface signals needed for the AI card?

    I have the same question.

    The design uses the mPCIe specification:

    If you are wanting to communications channels, it would be the same as standard PCIe communications. So your custom device would need to emulate PCIe as the device shows up as a PCIe device on your system - which is how you would communicate with it.

    For example, the Intel OpenVINO network is able to utilize the Intel Movidius Myriad VPU - which is the VPU on the AI Core itself (Intel Myriad 2 VPU 2450 to be specific). This software from Intel communicates over the PCIe bus to talk to the VPU on the AI Core.

    You may want to research Intel's documentation on OpenVINO for the specifications:
