Xilinx Kria™ KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit

Xilinx Kria™ KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit is an out-of-the-box platform that is ideal for vision application development without requiring complex hardware design knowledge. The KV260 is equipped with a non-production version of the production K26 SOM. This SOM and a fan heatsink are mounted to an evaluation carrier card optimized for vision applications, featuring multi-camera support via ON Semiconductor Imager Access System (IAS) and Raspberry Pi connectors.

Enabled by an ecosystem of accelerated applications for the KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit, developers of all types can get applications up and running in under 1 hour, with no FPGA experience needed. From there, customization and differentiation can be added via preferred design environments, at any level of abstraction, from application software to AI model to FPGA design.

With both hardware and software development requirements simplified, the KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit is the fastest and easiest platform for application development with the goal of volume deployment on Kria K26 SOMs.
