NVIDIA Jetson is a platform for embedded and edge devices that combines high-performance, low-power compute modules with the NVIDIA AI software stack. It's designed to provide end-to-end acceleration for AI applications with the same NVIDIA technologies that power data center and cloud deployments.
The Jetson family of production modules and developer kits include:
|Jetson Orin||Jetson AGX Orin series modules and developer kit|
Jetson Orin NX series modules
|Jetson Xavier||Jetson AGX Xavier series modules and developer kit|
Jetson Xavier NX series modules and developer kit
|Jetson Nano||Jetson Nano module and developer kits|
|Jetson TX2||Jetson TX2 series modules and [EOL] developer kit|
|Jetson TX1||[EOL] Jetson TX1 module and developer kit|
|Jetson TK1||[EOL] Jetson TK1 Developer Kit for the Tegra K1 SOC|

Each Jetson module is a complete System-on-Module (SOM) with NVIDIA GPU, CPU, memory, PMIC, etc. The modules also include AI, Computer Vision, and other hardware accelerators.
Jetson modules are designed for deployment in a production environment throughout their operating lifetime. Each Jetson module ships with no software pre-installed; you attach it to a carrier board designed or procured for your end product, and flash it with the software image you’ve developed.
See a complete list off Jetson Modules including a detailed feature comparison here.
Jetson developer kits are used to develop and test software in a pre-production environment. Each developer kit includes a non-production specification Jetson module attached to a reference carrier board.
See a complete list off Jetson Developer kits as well as links to documentation and getting-started resources here.
Jetson Ecosystem partners offer alternative Jetson development systems with various interface options. You can see a list of Partner Development Systems here.
NVIDIA Jetson production modules and developer kits are all supported by the same NVIDIA software stack, enabling you to develop once and deploy everywhere. JetPack SDK includes the latest Jetson Linux Driver Package (L4T) with Linux operating system and CUDA-X accelerated libraries and APIs for AI Edge application development. It also includes samples, documentation, and developer tools for both host computer and developer kit, and supports higher level SDKs such as DeepStream for streaming video analytics and Isaac for robotics.

The Jetson Zoo is a repository of open-source frameworks and packages that can be installed on Jetson, in addition pre-trained DNN models. It provides instructions and pre-built binary installers for popular Machine Learning frameworks such as TensorFlow and PyTorch.
Ecosystem Products & Cameras
The Jetson Ecosystem includes a diverse set of companies producing add-ons, accessories, sensors, and software for Jetson such as carrier boards, enclosures, cameras, production systems, and custom design services.
