NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier is the latest addition to the Jetson platform. Learn more by reading the Jetson AGX Xavier FAQ section below and the Jetson AGX Xavier Developer Kit User Guide.


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.

Use the JetPack installer to flash your Jetson Developer Kit with the latest OS image, to install developer tools for both host PC and Developer Kit, and to install the libraries and APIs, samples, and documentation needed to jumpstart your development environment.

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 Jetson module attached to a reference carrier board, along with power supply and cables, and pre-installed software to help you get started. The Jetson module ships with no software pre-installed; you attach it to the carrier board in your end product, and flash it with the software image you’ve developed.


Are Jetson AGX Xavier and other 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 a previous Jetson product is ported to Jetson AGX Xavier, new capabilities such as DLA engine acceleration become available.

The physical connector for Jetson AGX Xavier is new. Jetson AGX Xavier and the previous Jetson modules have many signals in common, but the connector pin-out and electromechanical footprint has been changed for Jetson AGX Xavier to support its vastly enhanced features. See the Jetson AGX Xavier Module Data Sheet and the Jetson AGX Xavier OEM Product Design Guide 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-TX2i Comparison and Migration document for details.


What differences are there 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.
