How to develop


Clara AGX SDK runs on the Jetson platform and provides developers with capabilities to build end-to-end streaming workflows for medical imaging. It includes advanced samples for ultrasound video and endoscopy. Membership to the NVIDIA Clara Developer Partner Program is required to access the SDK.

SDK Features

  • NVIDIA RTX support - Docker and CUDA, TensorRT, dGPU enablement
  • NVIDIA Mellanox Rivermax 100GbE streaming -Rivermax transport protocol streams data over ethernet directly into GPU GDDR DRAM using GPU Direct Technology
  • Windows Device mode support - I/O Driver provides Jetson AGX work in device mode on Windows 10 machine
  • Endoscopy using NVIDIA DeepStream - Video-in and inference for endoscopy and other video-based modalities
  • CUDA accelerated SUPRA library - Software-defined ultrasound processing for real-time Applications
  • Sensor Processing - Support for camera serial interface
  • Sample Applications
  • AI endoscopy reference application
  • AI ultrasound reference application
