System Requirements

Supported Host Operating Systems:

  • Ubuntu Linux x64 (v12.04, v14.04)
    • Note that at least 10GB of disk space is needed for the complete installation of JetPack TK1.

Target Platform Requirements:

  • Jetson TK1 DevKit, equipped with the NVIDIA Tegra TK1 processor
  • Developer system, cabled as follows: 
    • Serial cable plugged into the serial port J1A2 UART4 on the target, connected to your Linux host directly or through a serial-to-USB converter. (This is needed to setup a serial console on the Linux host.)
    • USB Micro-B cable connecting Jetson TK1 (J1E1 USB0) to your Linux host for flashing.
    • (Not included in the developer kit) To connect USB peripherals such as keyboard, mouse, and [optional] USB/Ethernet adapter (for network connection), a USB hub could be connected to the working USB port (J1C2 USB2) on the Jetson TK1 system.
    • An HDMI cable plugged into "J1C1 HDMI1" on the target, which is connected to an external HDMI display.
    • An Ethernet cable plugged into the J1D1 on-board Ethernet port.
