Impulse Embedded has announced the availability of the NVIDIA Jetson TX2 NX single board computer to deliver the next step in AI performance for entry-level embedded and edge products.
As with the Jetson Xavier NX, the TX2 NX shares the same form factor and pin compatibility as the Jetson Nano but offers more than twice the AI processing performance at 1.33 TFlops compared to 487 GFlops. A unique combination of form-factor, performance and power advantage makes the Jetson TX2 NX a great candidate for mass-market AI platforms.
The NVIDIA Jetson TX2 NX single board computer combines a dual-core NVIDIA Denver 2 64-bit CPU, a quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 MPCore processor and a 256-core Pascal GPU that can reach 1.3 GHz. Furthermore, the SBC has 4GB of 128-bit LPDDR4 memory and 16GB of eMMC 5.1 flash storage along with PCI Express expansion, Gigabit Ethernet, a USB3.1 Gen 1 port and video output via HDMI or DisplayPort. The SBC is fully capable of encoding one 4K stream at 60 fps in HEVC/H.265 or as many as 14 streams in 1080p at 30 fps in HEVC/H.264.
JetPack from Nvidia is the most comprehensive solution for building powerful AI applications. All Jetson modules and developer kits, including the TX2 NX, are supported by the JetPack software stack, enabling companies and developers to develop AI systems with confidence knowing they can deploy them anywhere on any Jetson device.
