The NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit, a powerful SBC smaller than a Raspberry Pi, is now shipping worldwide for US$99
The Jetson Nano Developer Kit has been hard to source outside of a few countries since NVIDIA unveiled it in March. Thankfully, one third-party supplier is now shipping the single board computer (SBC) worldwide.
The Developer Kit measures 100 mm x 80 mm x 29 mm and yet packs in a GPU with 128 CUDA cores that NVIDIA has based on its Maxwell microarchitecture. Moreover, the company has included a quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 CPU, 4 GB of 64-bit LPDDR4 RAM and 16 GB of eMMC 5.1 flash storage. The SBC also has 4 USB 3.0 Type-A ports and one USB 2.0 Micro-B along with Gigabit Ethernet, HDMI 2.0 and eDP 1.4.
The board has GPIOs, I²C, I²S, SPI and UART connectors too and can encode up to 4K H.264/H.265 videos at 30 FPS. It can also decode videos in the same resolution and codecs at 60 FPS. The Developer Kit supports the NVIDIA JetPack SDK, which you can download here.
You can currently buy the Jetson Nano Developer Kit directly from NVIDIA if you live in Canada, Puerto Rico, the United States or the Virgin Islands. People living in the US can also buy the board from Amazon or Newegg. However, currently only Seeedstudio will ship the Developer Kit worldwide; all other third-party suppliers, like Arrow and SparkFun, have the board on backorder.
