DroneLife · NVIDIA – Releases – Jetson – Orin – NX – 16 – GB – For – Drones – And – Low – Power – Robots

Starting today, the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX 16 GB module is available for purchase worldwide. Unrivaled in performance and efficiency for compact, low-power robots, the module is ideal for products such as drones and handheld devices, and can easily be deployed for advanced applications like manufacturing, logistics, retail, agriculture, healthcare, and life sciences. The Jetson Orin NX 16 GB is available for $599.

The smallest Jetson form factor, the Jetson Orin NX provides up to 100 TOPS of AI performance with power configurable between 10 W and 25 W. The module grants developers 3x the performance of the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Xavier and 5x the performance of the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX.

The system-on-module supports multiple AI application pipelines with NVIDIA Ampere architecture GPU, next-generation deep learning and vision accelerators, high-speed I/O, and fast memory bandwidth. Users will have the ability to develop solutions with the largest and most complex AI models in natural language understanding, 3D perception, and multi-sensor fusion.

The Jetson Orin NX demonstrated a 2.1x performance increase over the Jetson Xavier NX, and is expected to reach 3.1x with future software optimizations. Jetson Orin NX also brings support for sparsity, allowing the user to leverage the fine-grained structured sparsity in deep learning networks to increase the throughput for Tensor Core operations.

All Jetson Orin modules run the NVIDIA AI software stack. Also available today is NVIDIA JetPack 5.1, which offers support for the Orin NX 16 GB and the most recent CUDA-X stack on Jetson Orin.

The Jetson partner ecosystem also supports a wide variety of carrier boards and peripherals for the Jetson Orin NX 16 GB module, including sensors, cameras, connectivity modules (5G, 4G, Wi-Fi), and more, with options for partner-supported HW systems (carrier boards & full system) and partner-supported camera modules

Also available is the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit, supporting software emulation for all Jetson Orin modules, including the Jetson Orin NX 16 GB module.
