Course Description

This course will help you learn about the Xilinx Kria™ System-on-Module (SOM) and Kria KV260 Vision AI Starter Kit, enabling you to accelerate vision-based applications using the KV260 Starter Kit right out of the box without any installation or FPGA knowledge.

The course also provides information on how you can build your own hardware and software components, customize an AI model, and perform benchmarking. In addition, design guidelines for developing your own carrier card are covered.

The emphasis of this course is on:

  • Providing an overview of the Xilinx KriaK26 SOM and its advantages.
  • Providing an overview of the Xilinx KriaKV260 Vision AI Starter Kit and how to get started with the kit.
  • Running accelerated applications, such as the Smart Camera, AI Box, and Defect Detection applications, using the kit.
  • Running the NLP SmartVision demo application using the kit.
  • Building the hardware and software design components from scratch.
  • Customizing the AI models used in the applications.
  • Reviewing the design guidelines for developers to design their own carrier card.
