Mouser now stocks the Kria KR260 Robotics Starter Kit from Xilinx. Providing high-performance industrial vision and real-time networking interfaces, this starter kit enables roboticists to streamline their workflows when using the Kria K26 SOM. The starter kit supports various robotics, machine vision and industrial communication and control applications.

The starter kit comprises a pre-installed Kria K26 SOM utilising two 240-pin connectors and I/Os for sensor and network connectivity. The starter kit provides outstanding industrial vision with an SLVS-EC Rx, DisplayPort 1.2a, and four USB 3.0 ports for camera interfaces. The kit’s robust collection of real-time networking interfaces comprises four RJ45 Ethernet ports and one SFP+ optics interface for 10GE vision. Providing native ROS 2 and Ubuntu support along the Kria Robotics Stack (KRS), the kit supports ease of development for roboticists and embedded developers alike.

The starter kit can be readily adapted and scaled using Pmod and Raspberry Pi headers. With a wide Pmod ecosystem, the kit can extend to any sensor or interface.
