NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX is an embedded system-on-module (SoM) from the NVIDIA Jetson family, including an integrated 384-core Volta GPU with Tensor Cores, dual Deep Learning Accelerators (DLAs), 6-core NVIDIA Carmel ARMv8.2 CPU, 8GB 128-bit LPDDR4x with 51.2GB/s of memory bandwidth, hardware video codecs, and high-speed I/O including PCIe Gen 3, 12 camera lanes of MIPI CSI-2, USB 3.1.

Useful for deploying computer vision and deep learning to the edge, Jetson Xavier NX runs Linux and provides up to 21 TeraOPS (TOPS) of compute performance in user-configurable 10/15W power profiles.

Jetson Xavier NX is available as the Jetson Xavier NX compute module and is backwards-compatible with the production B01-revision of Jetson Nano. See the wiki of previous Jetson's here.

Jetson Xavier NX Module

The Jetson Xavier NX compute module contains the Xavier SoC, memory, eMMC storage, and power circuitry. The I/O ports are broken out through a carrier board via a 260-pin SO-DIMM edge connector, which is backwards-compatible with the Jetson Nano module pin-out.

Below is a partial list of the module's features. Please see the Jetson Xavier NX Module Datasheet for the complete specifications.
