NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier is an embedded system-on-module (SoM) from the NVIDIA AGX Systems family, including an integrated Volta GPU with Tensor Cores, dual Deep Learning Accelerators (DLAs), octal-core NVIDIA Carmel ARMv8.2 CPU, 16GB 256-bit LPDDR4x with 137GB/s of memory bandwidth, and 650Gbps of high-speed I/O including PCIe Gen 4 and 16 camera lanes of MIPI CSI-2.

Useful for deploying computer vision and deep learning to the edge, Jetson AGX Xavier runs Linux and provides 32 TeraOPS of compute performance in user-configurable 10/15/30W power profiles.

Jetson AGX Xavier is currently available as the Jetson AGX Xavier Developer Kit, with the OEM compute module becoming available in the future. See the wiki of previous Jetson's here.


Jetson AGX Xavier Module

The Jetson AGX Xavier compute module contains all the active processing components. The I/O ports are broken out through a carrier board via a 699-pin board-to-board connector.

Below is a partial list of the module's features. Please see the Jetson AGX Xavier Module Datasheet for the complete specifications.
