AMD’s Kria KR260 Robotics Starter Kit builds on the success of AMD’s Kria System-on-Modules (SoM) and is an ideal platform to test ideas for multi-Gigabit networking. Because Kria KR260 integrates an AMD Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC device, functions can be implemented using adaptive computing concepts: Either using the ARM A53 Quad-core CPUs and/or using programmable logic.
Missing Link Electronics (MLE) is an AMD Premier Adaptive Computing Partner. AMD’s Premier Agreements require that MLE maintains a high level of expertise and that MLE engineers complete AMD’s Certification and training requirements. Since 2012, MLE has been supporting AMD Zynq-7000 SoC and Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC device projects with expertise in FPGA design and Linux Processing System software development.
Project Cross Collaboration at Robert BOSCH GmbH has been using the Kria KR260 Robotics Kit and has engaged with MLE for proving ideas for computer vision and IEEE 1722-style multi-Gigabit automotive networking. A demonstrator based on a Zone ECU and the Kria KR260 Robotics Kit has been presented at the IEEE SA Ethernet & IP Technology Day, September 2023 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
