AMD launches Kria K24 system-on-module for use in industrial and commercial edge applications

AMD has introduced two new products, the AMD Kria K24 System-on-Module (SoM) and the KD240 Drives Starter Kit. These are part of the company’s Kria portfolio, which focuses on providing adaptable System-on-Modules and developer kits for various applications.

The AMD Kria K24 SoM is a compact computing module designed for use in industrial and commercial edge applications where power efficiency and small form factor are crucial. It is designed for applications that demand control of electric motors and perform digital signal processing tasks with low latency.

The K24 SoM is built around a custom-designed Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC (Multi-Processing System on Chip) device. This is a 64-bit processor that combines real-time control with soft and hard engines for graphics, video, and packet processing.

The system-on-module uses Advanced InFO (Integrated Fan-Out) packaging technology. This packaging technique helps reduce the size and power consumption of the module, making it an efficient choice for edge computing.

AMD SoM is certified and suitable for use in industrial environments. This means it meets the reliability and durability requirements typically demanded by industrial applications. The KD240 starter kit is designed to be accessible to entry-level developers.

Kria KD240 Drives Starter Kit

The KD240 drives starter kit is designed to help developers and engineers get started quickly with the Kria K24 oOM. It includes the necessary tools and resources to create production-ready solutions for motor control and DSP applications.

The combination of Kria K24 SoM and the development platform is designed to accelerate the time it takes for these applications to reach the market. This is important because getting a product to market quickly can be a significant competitive advantage.

The company emphasizes that users can start using these tools without needing expertise in FPGA programming. This becomes important because FPGA programming can be complex and require specialized skills.

The K24 SoM offers support for a wide range of design flows. This includes compatibility with popular design tools like Matlab Simulink and programming languages like Python. The PYNQ framework, Ubuntu, and Docker are also supported, providing flexibility and compatibility with different development environments.

The K24 SoMs (both commercial and industrial versions) and the KD240 Drives Starter Kit are available to order. The commercial version of the K24 SoM is already shipping, while the industrial version is expected to become available in the fourth quarter (Q4) of the year.
