Kria have unveiled the Kria SOM ODM Partner Ecosystem - a new program designed to deliver production-grade, fully functional Kria SOM-based solutions that they believe will help customers get to market faster without the need for dedicated chip-design resources.

For the first time through the new Kria ODM Partner Ecosystem, users can enjoy a turnkey experience with a full software stack and application support backed, claim the company.

Currently available ODM partner products developed via the Kria ODM Ecosystem, and powered by the K26 SOM, include:

• Ectron - IIoT Edge Gateway: Deploy edge analytics and advanced machine control. The Cloud-connected Industrial IoT Gateway enables plug and play deployments with built-in wired and wireless connectivity.
• Optomotive - industrial smart camera: Add a programmable, industrial camera to your system. Use for laser triangulation, motion capture, industrial process automation, industrial quality control, and more.
• VVDN - Edge AI appliance: Deploy an eight-channel AI edge appliance (Kria K26 SOM + Kinara Ara-1 processors) with support for high-performance vision AI applications at a fraction of the cost of competitor's GPU solution1. Designed for smart city and retail applications.

Initially targeting smart cities, security, retail, industrial IoT and machine-vision applications, these and other Kria SOM-based solutions developed aim to allow users to take advantage of the processing power and adaptability of Kria SOMs in pre-built, deployment-ready platforms that can quickly be customized, branded and taken to market.

Featuring adaptive computing with software and hardware re-programmability, the company believe this will allow users to quickly add features over the air and optimise system performance according to each task's needs - providing unparalleled flexibility.
