Dtravel is backed by a $5M seed fundraising round from Kenetic Capital, Future Perfect Ventures, DHVC, Plutus VC, GBV Capital, AU21 Capital, Shima Capital, LD Capital and NGC Ventures, as well as several angel investors.
The first product released is the Kria K26 SOM, which has been designed specifically for vision AI in smart cities and smart factories. The company has coupled its hardware and software with production-ready, vision accelerated applications. The small form factor embedded board is based on the Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC architecture, which has a quad-core Arm Cortex A53 processor, over 250,000 logic cells, and a H.264/265 video codec. The SOM also features 4Gbyte of DDR4 memory and 245 I/Os, which allow it to adapt to virtually any sensor or interface. It also has 1.4TOPS of AI compute performance which is sufficient to create vision AI applications with three times the performance at a lower latency and power budget compared to GPU-based SOMs, says Xilinx. The SOMs are intended for smart vision applications like security, traffic and road management cameras, retail analytics, machine vision, and vision-guided robotics.
