NVIDIA as unveiled a new development kit and mini PC at this year’s GPU Technology Conference 2019, in the form of the NVIDIA Jetson Nano which will be available in two versions. A $99 devkit created for developers, makers and enthusiasts and a production-ready module priced at $129 for companies looking to create mass-market edge systems.
The Jetson Nano mini PC supports high-resolution sensors and is capable of processing many sensors in parallel as well as running multiple modern neural networks on each sensor stream. the system also supports many popular artificial intelligent frameworks making it easy for developers to integrate their preferred models and frameworks into the hardware, says NVIDIA.
“NVIDIA Jetson Nano enables the development of millions of new small, low-power AI systems. It opens new worlds of embedded IoT applications, including entry-level Network Video Recorders (NVRs), home robots, and intelligent gateways with full analytics capabilities.Jetson Nano makes AI more accessible to everyone — and is supported by the same underlying architecture and software that powers our nation’s supercomputers,” said Deepu Talla, vice president and general manager of Autonomous Machines at NVIDIA. “Bringing AI to the maker movement opens up a whole new world of innovation, inspiring people to create the next big thing.”
Key features of Jetson Nano include:
– GPU: 128-core NVIDIA Maxwell architecture-based GPU
– CPU: Quad-core ARM A57
– Video: 4K @ 30 fps (H.264/H.265) / 4K @ 60 fps (H.264/H.265) encode and decode
– Camera: MIPI CSI-2 DPHY lanes, 12x (Module) and 1x (Developer Kit)
– Memory: 4 GB 64-bit LPDDR4; 25.6 gigabytes/second
– Connectivity: Gigabit Ethernet
– OS Support: Linux for Tegra
– Module Size: 70mm x 45mm
– Developer Kit Size: 100mm x 80mm
“The NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit delivers the compute performance to run modern AI workloads at unprecedented size, power, and cost. Developers, learners, and makers can now run AI frameworks and models for applications like image classification, object detection, segmentation, and speech processing. The developer kit can be powered by micro-USB and comes with extensive I/Os, ranging from GPIO to CSI. This makes it simple for developers to connect a diverse set of new sensors to enable a variety of AI applications. And it is incredibly power-efficient, consuming as little as 5 watts.”
