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?

Jetson developer kits include 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 to another, e.g., to Jetson AGX Xavier, new capabilities such as DLA engine acceleration may become available.

The physical connectors for Jetson modules do vary. For example, Jetson AGX Xavier and the other Jetson modules have many signals in common, but the connector pin-out and electromechanical footprint was increased for Jetson AGX Xavier to support its vastly enhanced features. See the Jetson module Data Sheets and Product Design Guides for details.

Jetson TX1, Jetson TX2, and Jetson TX2i modules are pin and software compatible. If designing a new carrier board that can support any of these modules, there are some interface differences to note. See the Jetson TX1-TX2 Interface Comparison and Migration document and the Jetson TX2 Series Interface Comparison and Migration document for details.

What are the differences between Jetson AGX Xavier and other Jetson modules?

Jetson AGX Xavier is something far beyond previous Jetson modules. As an AI computer for Autonomous Machines, it delivers the capability of a powerful desktop GPU workstation in an embedded module under 30W. It is built around an NVIDIA Volta™ GPU with Tensor Cores, and 2 NVDLA engines, and an 8-core 64-bit ARM CPU. See the Jetson AGX Xavier FAQ for details.

Jetson TX2 is a fast, power-efficient AI computing device, built around an NVIDIA Pascal™-family GPU and loaded with 8 GB of memory and 58.4 GB/s of memory bandwidth. See the Jetson Hardware page for a comparison between Jetson TX2 and Jetson TX1.

Jetson TX2i is a Jetson TX2 SKU for industrial environments. The rugged design, small form factor and power envelope make the Jetson TX2i module ideal for high performance edge computing devices such as industrial robots, machine vision cameras and portable medical equipment. See this FAQ for a comparison between Jetson TX2 and Jetson TX2i.

Jetson TX2 4GB will allow developers to run neural networks with double the compute performance or double the power efficiency of Jetson TX1—at the same price.
