  • USB Keyboard
  • USB Mouse
  • DisplayPort Cable (for connecting to a monitor)
  • DisplayPort Display

Use of a USB keyboard and mouse is optional. You can also use a USB camera/webcam or depth sensing camera for your robotics application.

Important: Critical Firmware Update Required

  • To enable complete board functionality, compatibility with latest Operating Systems, and best performance, be sure to install the latest AMD provided boot firmware following the firmware update instructions available on the K26 Wiki

Ubuntu Linux OS

Ubuntu Linux OS is the best choice for Getting Started with the KR260.

Ubuntu 22.04 Demos

  • Enable a desktop-like experience without the need of connecting to a laptop/PC. 
  • Access to rich set of third-party software libraries in the Ubuntu community.
  • Run the ROS 2 Perception Node Accelerated App (more accelerated apps from the Kria App Store will be made available over time) to evaluate KR260 running an Ubuntu application.

Additional Embedded Developer Assets and Resources

  • For embedded developers looking to directly use PetaLinux BSPs for application development and deployment, rather than Ubuntu, the latest PetaLinux BSPs are available on the K26 Wiki
