Jethro Compact I/O-rich Carrier Board for NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX2/TX2i modules

Diamond Systems Corporation

Jethro Carrier BoardThe Jethro compact carrier board offers an I/O-rich, low cost solution for implementing AI/ML computing solutions based on NVIDIA Jetson TX2/TX2i computer modules. Providing up to 1.3 TeraOPS performance, these powerful yet miniature modules feature NVIDIA’s Pascal™-family 256-core GPU technology, along with a dual-core NVIDIA Denver 2 ARM CPU and a quad-core ARM Cortex-A57 CPU.

Jethro provides access to most I/O features of the Jetson TX2/Tx2i modules, including 2x 4-channel CSI camera, 1x 10/100/1000 Ethernet, 1x 3.0 & 2x 2.0 USB, 1 HDMI and 2x RS-232 serial. In addition, it features a unique data acquisition circuit with analog input, analog output, and digital I/O to enable Jethro to interface to the "real world" of analog and digital sensors and controls.

  • 6 analog inputs with programmable 12-bit up to 16-bit resolution and 0-3.3V input range
  • 2 analog outputs with 12-bit resolution and 0-3.3V output range
  • 12 DIO with 3.3V logic levels

Jethro with Jetson TX2 or TX2i module and expansion sockets populated.Jethro measures only 107mm x 76mm / 4.2” x 3.0” yet it features a full suite of expansion capabilities, including PCIe MiniCard socket, M.2 2242 SATA flash memory socket, and a Nimbelink™ Skywire® modem socket. The carrier’s latching connectors and wide temperature range provide increased resistance to shock and vibration and the ability to operate in harsh environments.

With its integrated Linux OS and Diamond's built-in data acquisition driver software, featuring a programming library with application demos plus an interactive GUI-based control program that offers real-time access and control.

Jethro is ready to deploy AI at the edge and machine learning applications for vehicle and outdoor environments.
