AI starter kit for rapid development of vision applications

09-06-2021 | Mouser Electronics | Development Boards

Mouser now offers the Kria KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit from Xilinx. The kit enables design engineers with no previous experience in AI development to rapidly implement designs and algorithms onto an FPGA platform. The kit is purpose-built to support accelerated vision applications. It is an exceptional way for industrial and consumer developers to get up and running in under an hour without any knowledge of FPGAs or FPGA tools.

The kit is an out-of-the-box platform that also empowers developers to add customisation and differentiation through preferred design environments, at any level of abstraction, from application software to AI model to FPGA design. This kit is the easiest and fastest platform for application development to volume deployment on Kria K26 SOMs.

The kit includes multi-camera support for up to eight interfaces, three MIPI sensor interfaces, a built-in ISP component, a USB camera, HDMI DisplayPort outputs, and Gigabit Ethernet and USB 3.0/2.0 connectivity features. The kit also enables developers to extend to any sensor or interface and access the Pmod ecosystem. The solution is optimised for vision applications, providing multi-camera support through ON Semiconductor IAS and Raspberry Pi connectors.
