Jetson TX2 is with NVIDIA Pascal GPU architecture with 256 NVIDIA CUDA cores, Dual-Core NVIDIA Denver 2 64-Bit CPU Quad-Core ARM® Cortex®-A57 MPCore, 8GB 128-bit LPDDR4 RAM, 32GB eMMC, WiFi and various other connectors. Jetson TX2 module will be available through January 2025 and TX2i, the industrial version of the module, until 2028. In this video we will have a look at the technical specifications and get started with Ubuntu.
I recently purchased a used Jetson TX2 Dev Kit at a very reasonable price from ebay. I used it for demonstration purposes in the video. The original power supply isn't available so instead an old 19V laptop power supply was used. The Dev Kit includes a reference carrier board, aka similar concept as the motherboard in conventional personal computers. For professional industrial and automotive projects the Jetson TX2 is supposed to be mounted on a multi-layer custom carrier board.
