NVIDIA today announced the Jetson Nano, an AI computer that makes it possible to create millions of intelligent systems. The small but powerful CUDA-X AI computer delivers 472 GFLOPS of compute performance for running modern AI workloads and is highly power -efficient, consuming as little as 5 watts.
Jetson Nano supports high-resolution sensors, can process many sensors in parallel and can run multiple modern neural networks on each sensor stream. It also supports many popular AI frameworks, making it easy for developers to integrate their preferred models and frameworks into the product.
Jetson Nano Developer Kit
The kit comes with out-of-the-box support for full desktop Linux, compatibility with many popular peripherals and accessories, and ready-to-use projects and tutorials that help makers get started with AI fast. NVIDIA also manages the Jetson developer forum, where people can get answers to technical questions.
Jetson Nano Module
In the past, companies have been constrained by the challenges of size, power, cost and AI compute density. The Jetson Nano module brings to life a new world of embedded applications, including network video recorders, home robots and intelligent gateways with full analytics capabilities. It’s designed to reduce overall development time and bring products to market faster by reducing the time spent in hardware design, test, and verification of a complex, robust, power-efficient AI system.
