NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX for Embedded & Edge Systems


NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier NX brings supercomputer performance to the edge in a small form factor system-on-module (SOM). Up to 21 TOPS of accelerated computing delivers the horsepower to run modern neural networks in parallel and process data from multiple high-resolution sensors—a requirement for full AI systems.

Jetson Xavier NX now features cloud-native support that lets developers build and deploy high-quality, software-defined features on embedded and edge devices. Pre-trained AI models from NVIDIA NGC and the NVIDIA Transfer Learning Toolkit give you a faster path to trained and optimized AI networks, while containerized deployment to Jetson devices allows flexible and seamless updates. Jetson Xavier NX accelerates the NVIDIA software stack with more than 10X the performance of its widely adopted predecessor, Jetson TX2.

At 70 mm x 45 mm, Jetson Xavier NX packs the power of the NVIDIA Xavier SoC into a module the size of a Jetson Nano. This compact module combines exceptional performance and power advantage with a rich set of IOs—from high-speed CSI and PCIe to low-speed I2Cs and GPIOs. Take advantage of the small form factor, sensor-rich interfaces, and big performance to bring new capability to all your embedded AI and edge systems.

Jetson Xavier NX delivers up to 21 TOPS, making it ideal for high-performance compute and AI in embedded and edge systems. You get the performance of 384 NVIDIA CUDA® Cores, 48 Tensor Cores, 6 Carmel ARM CPUs, and two NVIDIA Deep Learning Accelerators (NVDLA) engines. Combined with over 51GB/s of memory bandwidth, video encoded, and decode, these features make Jetson Xavier NX the platform of choice to run multiple modern neural networks in parallel and process high-resolution data from multiple sensors simultaneously.

Jetson Xavier NX supports multiple power modes, including low-power modes for battery-operated systems, and delivers up to 14 TOPs for AI applications in as little as 10 W. This leaves more of your power budget for sensors and peripherals, while still letting you use the entire NVIDIA software stack. You now have the performance to run all modern AI networks and frameworks with accelerated libraries for deep learning, computer vision, computer graphics, multimedia, and more.

Jetson Xavier NX

Jetson Xavier NX is perfect for high-performance AI systems like commercial robots, medical instruments, smart cameras, high-resolution sensors, automated optical inspection, smart factories, and other AIoT embedded systems.

The Jetson Xavier NX enables AI at the edge with powerful computing performance, while keeping the small form factor of the Jetson Nano. This makes it possible to deploy containerized Azure solutions with AI acceleration at scale for applications like processing multiple camera feeds, more sophisticated robotics applications, and edge AI gateway scenarios.
