The AI revolution is transforming industries, and with increased adoption comes the desire to bring artificial intelligence to even more systems – devices that are smarter, lower power and lower cost. This path has been constrained until now by the challenges of size, power and AI computing density. The Jetson Nano™ is NVIDIA®'s response to this market need - a production-ready module that enables the development of millions of new AI devices that are small in size, affordable and power efficient.
The power of AI, born of supercomputers, is now available to the mass embedded market with Jetson Nano.
With the ability to run a full desktop Linux setup with many common tools, utilities and device drivers (all pre-installed), the Jetson Nano is a powerful and easy-to-use platform that is compatible, out of the box, with multiple popular peripherals. This board is capable of running multiple neural networks in parallel, and processing high resolution data from multiple sensors simultaneously. So what sort of frameworks does the Jetson Nano support? We're glad you asked! Delivering 472 GFLOPs for running modern AI algorithms, the Jetson Nanon supports TensorFlow, PyTorch, MxNet, Caffe and more!
The NVIDIA Jetson Nano module is a production-ready System on Module in an impressively small form-factor. It is equipped with a 128-core NIVIDIA Maxwell™GPU, a quad-core ARM A57 processing system, a video encoder and decoder, as well as 4GB LPDDR4 and 16GB eMMC memory. But that's not all: The Jetson Nanon also features a host of interfaces and IOs, including high-speed IO for CSI, PCIe, Gigabit Ethernet and multiple USB3. HDMI and Display port connectors are also available as well!
Jetson Nano is designed to reduce overall development time and bring products to market faster by reducing the time spent in hardware design, test and verification of a complex, robust, power-efficient AI system. The design comes complete with power management, clocking, memory and fully accessible IOs. Developers can simply connect their sensors and IO and start developing the application-specific parts of the system. With both boot and program flash, Jetson Nano lets developers simply and regularly update their algorithms during development, and even after the system is deployed.
The NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit is now available for pre-order, and we expect to start shipping soon!
