What is Jetson?

NVIDIA® Jetson is the world's leading platform for AI at the edge. Its high-performance, low-power computing for deep learning and computer vision makes it the ideal platform for compute-intensive projects.

For more information, see the NVIDIA Jetson Developer Site. For product datasheets and other technical collateral, see the Jetson Download Center.

What is JetPack?

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

JetPack provides your Jetson Developer Kit with the latest OS image, libraries and APIs, samples, and documentation, as well as developer tools.

See this link for more information.

Where can I buy Jetson products?

Jetson products are available from e-tailers and distributors, as well as from NVIDIA. See this link for a full listing.

What is the difference between Jetson Developer Kits and Jetson modules?

Each Jetson developer kit includes a non-production specification Jetson module attached to a reference carrier board. Together with JetPack SDK, it is used to develop and test software for your use case. Jetson developer kits are not intended for production use.

Jetson modules are suitable for deployment in a production environment throughout their operating lifetime. Each Jetson module ships with no software pre-installed; you attach it to a carrier board designed or procured for your end product, and flash it with the software image you’ve developed.

Can Jetson developer kits be used as production systems or as part of a product?

No. Jetson developer kits are not for production use. The developer kit is used to develop and test software in a pre-production environment.

Jetson modules are designed for deployment in a production environment throughout their operating lifetime.

Are all the Jetson modules compatible?

All Jetson products are supported by NVIDIA software libraries such as CUDA, cuDNN, and TensorRT for accelerated AI applications. When software developed on one Jetson product is ported to another, new capabilities such as DLA engine acceleration may become available.

Jetson modules have many signals in common, but the connector pin-out and electromechanical footprints do vary. See the Jetson module Data Sheets and Product Design Guides for details. In summary:

  • Jetson Nano and Jetson Xavier NX modules are pin compatible.
  • Jetson TX1 and Jetson TX2 series modules (Jetson TX2, Jetson TX2 4GB, and Jetson TX2i) are pin compatible.
  • Jetson AGX Xavier series modules (Jetson AGX Xavier and Jetson AGX Xavier 8GB) are pin compatible.

When designing a carrier board to support more than one of the modules listed as pin compatible, there may be some interface differences to note. See the Interface Comparison and Migration documents for details.

What are the differences between Jetson modules?

All Jetson modules run the same NVIDIA software stack, with different combinations of interfaces, mechanical size, and performance.

See the Jetson Hardware page for a comparison between all Jetson modules.
