JetPack (the Jetson SDK) is an on-demand all-in-one package that bundles and installs all software tools required to develop for the NVIDIA® Jetson Embedded Platform (including flashing the Jetson Developer Kit with the latest OS images). JetPack includes host and target developer tools, APIs and packages (OS images, tools, APIs, middleware, samples, documentation including compiling samples) to enable developers to jump-start their development environment for developing with the Jetson Embedded Platform. The latest release of JetPack runs on an Ubuntu 14.04 Linux 64-bit host system and supports the latest Jetson TX2 Developer Kit, and continues to support the Jetson TX1 Developer Kit and the Jetson TK1 Developer Kit.
Note: An Ubuntu host PC is required to run the JetPack installer. It can flash and update software on a target Jetson device, but it cannot not run directly on that device. When no target device is present, the JetPack installer can still be used to update software on the host PC.
JetPack 3.0 includes support for the latest L4T BSP software packages for the Jetson TX2, Jetson TX1, and Jetson TK1 Development Kits. Automatically flash your Jetson Development Kit with the latest BSPs (L4T 27.1 for Jetson TX2, L4T 24.2.1 for Jetson TX1, and L4T 21.5 for Jetson TK1) and install the latest software tools required to build and profile for applications for the Jetson Embedded Platform. This package contains CUDA toolkit for the host (Ubuntu) and target (Jetson TX2, TX1, and TK1) platforms, latest NVIDIA Developer Tools (Tegra Graphics Debugger 2.4, Tegra System Profiler 3.7 and PerfKit 4.5.1), VisionWorks 1.6, cuDNN v5.1, MM API v27.1, OpenCV 2.4.13 and GameWorks OpenGL Samples 2.11a with support for OpenGL 4.5 and OpenGL ES 3.2.
We encourage all users to report feedback, bugs and suggestions to improve the workflow experience of future versions of JetPack. A feedback form is available here.
