Jetson Nano Dev Kit

Base on the N-VIDIA Jetson Nano Module

Jetson Nano is a small, powerful AI computer, which delivers 472 GFLOPS for running modern AI algorithms fast, with a Cortex-A57 CPU and a 128-core Maxwell GPU.It is widely used for deep learning, computer vision, GPU computing, multimedia processing,and much more. Many popular AI frameworks are supported, such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, Caffe / Caffe2, Keras, and MXNet, etc. This product provides two version options: N-VIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit (B01) and Waveshare Jetson Nano Dev Kit.

Jetson Nano Developer Kit (B01) is the official N-VIDIA kit with a variety of onboard interfaces including the 40PIN GPIO expansion header, Gigabit Ethernet port, USB 3.0 ports, HDMI port, DIS port and CSI camera connector, meet the needs of various applications.

Waveshare Jetson Nano Dev Kit is the alternative solution of B01 kit, with the Jetson Nano B01 eMMC version module and the Waveshare JETSON-IO-BASE-A carrier board, providing almost the same performance and appearance as the Jetson Nano Developer Kit (B01). The B01 kit on board is a non-production specification Jetson Nano module, mainly for development and software testing, while the Jetson Nano B01 eMMC version is more suitable for users to integrate in production environments.

* Please refer to the part list for detailed package content.


  • Li-ion and Li-po batteries are quite unstable. They may cause fire, personal injury, or property damage, if they're not properly recharged or used.
  • Do not reversely connect the polarities when recharging or discharging the battery. Do not use inferior charger/charging panel to recharge the battery.
  • Do not mix use old batteries with new ones, avoid using batteries of different brands.
  • When buying Lithium battery, should always make sure the battery specification is compatible with the expansion board. Choose batteries from formal manufacturer, and ensure the batteries will work stably and safely by aging test.
  • Lithium batteries have limited cycle life, they will also deteriorate as time goes by. Should be replaced with new ones when the batteries reaching their max cycle life, or working over two years, whichever comes first.
  • Should be placed carefully and properly, keep it away from inflammables and explosives articles, away from children, avoid any safety accident caused by careless storage.
