New SOM delivers performance and cost

04-06-2024 | Mouser Electronics | Semiconductors

Mouser now ships the Kria K24 SOM from AMD/Xilinx. The K24 SOM features a cost-optimised, custom-built Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC device about half the size of a credit card for customers seeking the right power, cost, and performance for DSP-industrial-based applications, such as motor control, medical equipment, sensor fusion, multi-axis robotics, factory automation and more.

The SOM is the newest addition to the Kria SOM portfolio, available in commercial and industrial-grade variants. With 132 I/Os available to users, it can connect up to three medium-sized BLDC motors with encoders and provides TSN-enabled networking through four 1G Ethernet interfaces (2x PS GEM, 2x PL GEM). The resulting platform is highly scalable with many possible end applications and is expandable for evolving system requirements. It also offers enhanced security features through the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC's hardware root of trust and a discrete TPM 2.0 device. The K24 SOM also provides hardware and software compatibility flexibility for future standards and sensor needs, like connector compatibility, to simplify customisation without PCB modifications.

Embedded software developers without FPGA expertise can get user-friendly support from the KD240 drives starter kit, an out-of-the-box ready development platform with accelerated applications that uses multiple development flows, including Python, the MATLAB Simulink environment and more.
