Miscellaneous Port and Connector Details

DisplayPort Output

To connect a display to the developer kit, use the DisplayPort output port ( 8 J18 ). This is the only way to get the display out on the developer kit, the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit does not support HDMI or DisplayPort over USB-C.

To connect to a monitor or TV that only accepts HDMI, you can use an active adaptor/cable that converts DisplayPort to HDMI.

DisplayPort output port supports;

  • DP SST
  • DP MST
    • Can support up to a max of 2 external displays
  • DP DSC
  • Max resolution (with or without DSC): 8k@30 / 4k@120
    • HBR3 / 4ln
  • Output Formats
    • RGB 8bpc
    • RGB 10bpc
    • YUV444 8bpc
    • YUV444 10bpc

Storage

Default storage:

  • eMMC flash memory on the Jetson AGX Orin module.

Optional storage:

  • NVMe SSD card (on M.2 M-Key slot J1 ).
  • USB thumb-drive (on any USB port).
  • microSD card (in microSD card slot J10 ).

You can flash the base L4T BSP on to any of the storage medium above using SDK Manager.
See Step #5 of Use SDK Manager to Flash L4T BSP section on Software Setup with SDK Manager page

Ethernet port ( 6 J17 )

Indicator LED pattern:

Status & Speed Left side (SPEED LED) Right side (ACT LED)
Connected - Solid GREEN
10M N/A N/A
100M OFF Blinking GREEN
1G YELLOW Blinking GREEN
2.5G YELLOW Blinking GREEN
5G YELLOW Blinking GREEN

40-pin header ( 11 J40 )

Pin assignment :

To identify the orientation of the 40-pin header (i.e. Pin 1), look for the white triangle marking on the PCB.

For details, see NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit Carrier Board Specification .

Automation header ( J42 )

  • pin #1 , #12 , GND
  • pin #2 , #3 , #4 : Input, same function as three buttons: Recovery, Reset, Power.
  • pin #5 - #6 : Open: Auto Power-On disable; Short: Auto Power-On enable.
  • pin #7 : CVB_STBY: output, indicating module is in sleep or not.
  • pin #8 : SYSTEM_OC: input, to trigger Tegra throttling.
  • pin #9 - #10 : Open: Wake(Boot) on LAN from Off state is disabled; Short: Wake(Boot) on Lan from Off state is enable.
  • pin #11 : JTAG_TRST, JTAG Test Reset.

For details, see NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit Carrier Board Specification .

RTC backup battery connector ( J13 )

It can accommodate RTC backup battery with 1.25mm pitch connector, like these .

Camera connector ( J509 )

MIPI CSI input (6x2/4x4 lane)

For detail, see NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Series Camera Module Hardware Design Guide .

HD Audio header ( J511 )
