NVIDIA Jetson devices are supported by the same NVIDIA software stack, enabling you to develop once and deploy everywhere. JetPack SDK includes the latest Linux Driver Package (L4T) with Linux operating system and CUDA-X accelerated libraries and APIs for AI Edge application development. It also includes samples, documentation, and developer tools for both host computer and developer kit, and supports higher level SDKs such as DeepStream for streaming video analytics and Isaac for robotics.

NVIDIA JetPack SDK is the most comprehensive solution for building AI applications. It bundles Jetson platform software including TensorRT, cuDNN, CUDA Toolkit, VisionWorks, GStreamer, and OpenCV, all built on top of L4T with LTS Linux kernel.

JetPack includes NVIDIA container runtime, enabling cloud-native technologies and workflows at the edge.

NVIDIA L4T provides the Linux kernel, bootloader, NVIDIA drivers, flashing utilities, sample filesystem, and more for the Jetson platform.

You can customize L4T software to fit the needs of your project. By following the platform adaptation and bring-up guide, you can optimize your use of the complete Jetson product feature set. Follow the links below for details about the latest software libraries, frameworks, and source packages.


NVIDIA’s DeepStream SDK delivers a complete streaming analytics toolkit for AI-based multi-sensor processing, video and image understanding. DeepStream is an integral part of NVIDIA Metropolis, the platform for building end-to-end services and solutions that transform pixel and sensor data to actionable insights.

The NVIDIA Isaac SDK makes it easy for developers to create and deploy AI-powered robotics. The SDK includes the Isaac Engine (application framework), Isaac GEMs (packages with high-performance robotics algorithms), Isaac Apps (reference applications) and Isaac Sim for Navigation (a powerful simulation platform). These tools and APIs accelerate robot development by making it easier to add artificial intelligence (AI) for perception and navigation into robots.
