The Starter Kit has a primary and secondary boot device, isolating the boot firmware from the run-time OS and application. This allows you to focus on developing and updating your application code within the application image on the secondary boot device, without having to develop the boot firmware. The primary boot device is a QSPI memory located on the SOM, which is pre-programmed (pre-loaded QSPI image) at the factory. The secondary boot device is a microSD card interface on the carrier card.
For setting up the microSD card, you’ll need to download the latest SD card image and then write it using an Image Flashing tool.
Once your microSD card is flashed with the image, proceed to the next step.
Looking for OS specific tools to write the image to the SD card?
For Windows users, you can also use the Win32 Disk Imager tool instead of Balena Etcher. Ensure that your SD card is correctly formatted before using the tool. Also, ensure that the compressed SD card image for Kria KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit has been extracted using an archive decompression tool.
