Pre-Built Hardware and Software Platform
Accelerated applications enable developers to program and differentiate their designs at the software level, without requiring FPGA programming experience. Paired with the KD240 Drives Starter Kit, production-ready accelerated applications can be up and running in under 1 hour, allowing developers to focus on differentiation and shortening the runway to volume deployment. Common industrial applications are available today, with more on the way from AMD and a growing ecosystem of partners. Check out the Kria App Store to learn more.
The newest addition to the Kria™ SOM portfolio, the Kria K24 SOM features a cost-optimized, custom-built Zynq™ UltraScale+™ MPSoC device. About half the size of a credit card, the K24 SOM targets customers seeking the right power, cost, and performance for DSP-based applications such as industrial motor control, medical equipment, sensor fusion, multi-axis robots for factory automation, and more.
Kria™ adaptive System-on-Module (SOM) devices from AMD play an important role in electric drive control. They can optimize performance, help a motor run more efficiently, reduce power consumption, mitigate noise, cut vibration, and detect potential failures before they happen.
