Jetson Xavier Nx Module

NVIDIA has announced the Jetson Xavier NX, a credit card-sized artificial intelligence module designed for small commercial robots, drones, intelligent high-resolution sensors, and optical inspection, among other uses.

The Jetson Xavier NX has a 70 mm x 45 mm footprint, can deliver 14 tera operations per second (TOPS) while consuming 10 W of power, and 21 TOPS at 15W. The new module runs on the CUDA-X AI software architecture and is supported by the NVIDIA JetPack software development kit.

The new module is built around the NVIDIA Volta GPU that features 384 NVIDIA CUDA cores, 48 Tensor Cores, and two NVIDIA deep learning accelerators (NVDLAs). The CPU is a 6-core Carmel Arm 64-bit, the module includes 8 GB of 128-bit LPDDR4x memory, and connectivity is provided by GigE interface.

The Jetson Xavier NX supports major AI frameworks including TensorFlow, PyTorch, MxNet, and Caffe among others. The new module will be released in March 2020.
