NVIDIA Jetson TX2 Developer Kit, AI Supercomputer-on-a-module

SKU: 16676
Part Number: Jetson TX2 Developer Kit



NVIDIA Jetson TX2 Developer Kit, for the Jetson TX2 AI Supercomputer-on-a-module


The Jetson TX2 Developer Kit gives you a fast, easy way to develop hardware and software for the Jetson TX2 AI supercomputer-on-a-module. Jetson TX2’s quad-core ARM A57 and dual-core Denver 2 CPU, 256-core NVIDIA Pascal™ architecture GPU, and super AI computing ability are ideal for intelligent edge devices like robots, drones, smart cameras, and portable medical devices.

It exposes the hardware capabilities and interfaces of the developer board, and also supports NVIDIA Jetpack—a complete SDK that includes the BSP, CUDA, cuDNN, and TensorRT software libraries for deep learning, computer vision, GPU computing, multimedia processing, and much more. The SDK also includes the ability to install popular AI frameworks such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, Caffe / Caffe2, Keras, and MXNet.

The Jetson TX2 is more than double the performance and twice the energy efficiency of Jetson TX1, provides higher performance and accuracy for applications such as smart cities, factory rotots, and prototyping. It supports all the features of the Jetson TX1 module while enabling bigger, more complex deep neural networks.
