Step 3. Connecting Everything

The following are the key connections for the Xilinx Kria™ KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit:

  1. Insert the microSD card containing the boot image in the microSD card slot (J11) on the Starter Kit
  2. Get your USB-A to micro-B cable (a.k.a. micro-USB cable), which supports data transfer.* Do not connect the USB-A end to your computer yet. Connect the micro-B end to J4 on the Starter Kit.
  3. Connect the IAS Camera Module to J7 (or USB camera module to U44 or U46)
  4. Connect to a monitor/display with the help of a DisplayPort/HDMI cable
  5. Grab the Power Supply and connect it to the DC Jack (J12) on the Starter Kit. Do not insert the other end to the AC plug yet.

Users can also connect a supported USB camera/webcam to the Starter Kit instead of the IAS Camera module. Users also have the option to connect to DisplayPort instead of HDMI; they must have a DisplayPort cable and DisplayPort supported monitor. Connecting to a USB keyboard is optional.

*Note that not all micro-USB cables support data transfer - some micro-USB cables are for charging-only and will not work with your Starter Kit.
