Dialog Semiconductor, soon to be part of Renesas Electronics, has expanded its collaboration with Xilinx for its Kria adaptive system-on-modules (SOMs) targeting vision AI applications in smart cities and factories.
The Xilinx Kria modules are production-ready small form factor embedded boards that enable rapid deployment in edge-based applications with a complete software stack and pre-built, production-grade accelerated applications. While the Kria K26 SOM is at its most efficient at 10W, Dialog’s DA9062, DA9130 and DA9131 PMICs can deliver a combined 21.5A for the module to operate at maximum performance.
The Kria K26 and KV260 Vision AI Starter Kits also use Dialog’s GreenPAK Configurable Mixed-signal ICs to enable a customized power sequencing, supervisory and Power-on reset (PoR) solution. The highly configurable nature of GreenPAK allows for easy implementation of a low cost, small footprint, granular power sequencing scheme that truly maximizes system power efficiency.
“Xilinx’s market leading Kria adaptive SOMs take full advantage of Dialog’s flexible/scalable power solutions in combination with GreenPAK,” said Tom Sandoval, Senior Vice President, GM Automotive Business Segment. “Our close collaboration with Xilinx has enabled a high performance, fully programmable vision AI platform that will greatly benefit customers.”
“Dialog Semiconductor’s highly integrated PMICs have allowed us to deliver a credit card sized Kria K26 SOM with a highly efficient power system enabling Xilinx customers to fast track their vision AI applications in the retail analytics, security, smart camera and machine vision markets,” said Kirk Saban, Vice President, Product and Platform Marketing at Xilinx.
The DA9062 system PMIC, DA9130 sub-PMIC, and DA9131 sub-PMIC, feature significant scalability and flexibility advantages while distributing heat dissipation in elevated temperature environments. The built-in configurability engines provide system designers the ability to easily solve their power sequencing, thermal, and system control challenges. Dialog’s SmartCanvas GUI simplifies the customization of the power management.
The devices are available in commercial/industrial grade as well as Automotive grade versions.
