NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit

OKdo, part of Electrocomponents plc, introduced the NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit which comes with out-of-the-box support for full desktop Linux, compatible with many peripherals and accessories, ready-to-use projects and tutorials to help makers get started. The Jetson platform brings once unimaginable artificial intelligence (AI) applications within the reach of makers, inventors, designers and engineers. 


The Jetson Nano is an AI development kit offering high-performance and power-efficient computing. It’s built on the same architecture and software that powers the world’s fastest supercomputers. It also features NVIDIA’s JetPack SDK, which is built on CUDA-X and is a complete AI software stack with accelerated libraries for deep learning, computer vision, computer graphics and multimedia processing to support the Jetson Nano.


The compact yet powerful Jetson Nano platform delivers 472 Gflops of computing performance, consuming as little as 5 watts, making it the perfect choice for object detection, video search, face recognition and heat mapping. It supports high-resolution sensors, can process multiple sensors in parallel and has modern neural networks on each sensor stream. It complements many popular AI frameworks, so it’s easy for developers to integrate into their products.


The Jetson Nano Developer Kit is ideal for bringing the power of modern AI to a small, easy-to-use platform - enabling the development of AI-powered robots, drones, intelligent video analytics enabled-devices, AI IoT devices, and other autonomous machines,” said Murali Gopalakrishna, Head of Product Management for autonomous machines at NVIDIA. “OKdo’s strong position in the electronics development maker community will enable developers to get engaged and develop new and exciting AI applications.
