NVIDIA® Jetson™ product range now available from element14
Jetson computing boards and AI platforms accelerate edge computing applications
element14 now stocks NVIDIA® Jetson™, the world's leading platform for autonomous machines and other embedded applications.
The range of Jetson small form factor, high-performance computer modules now available from element14 include the Jetson Nano, Jetson AGX and Jetson Xavier NX. Each module is equipped with NVIDIA’s JetPack™ SDK for software acceleration, supported by a surrounding ecosystem of relevant sensors, SDKs, services and products to further speed development. The JetPack SDK provides a Linux environment, CUDA-X libraries, APIs, and tools for AI edge development and also supports higher-level SDKs like DeepStream and NVIDIA Isaac.
Each Jetson computer is a complete system-on-a-module (SoM) able to meet virtually every power, performance and form-factor need across multiple industries. This means that the modules include a GPU, CPU, memory, power management and relevant interfaces. This enables Jetson OEM and development partners in industries from manufacturing, retail and agriculture to healthcare, waste management and smart cities to fast-forward the launch of a new generation of AI edge devices, but at a significantly reduced development cost.
With the aid of powerful technology provided by the NVIDIA Jetson platform, autonomous machines that are increasingly operating at the edge for robotics, machine vision, the Internet of Things (IoT) and intelligent video analytics (IVA) can now use the full power of AI to address some of the world’s most pressing issues.
The NVIDIA Jetson modules and their associated development kits share a unified software architecture that makes it easier for developers to expand their product lines and maximise the benefits to be gained from their investment.
The platform also supports cloud-native technologies like containerization and orchestration, which enables quick and efficient development, deployment and updating of AI edge products, even for the billions of devices in the field that require frequent updates.
Romain Soreau, Head of Single Board Computing at element14, said, “The Jetson range has truly been a game changer in the rapidly accelerating move to the AI and machine learning advances that underpin the new industrial age referred to as Industry 4.0. We are delighted to bring these NVIDIA modules to developers who need the most sophisticated tools for edge computing applications.”
The NVIDIA Jetson modules are now available from stock at element14 in APAC.
