The NVIDIA® Jetson OrinTM Nano Developer Kit sets a new standard for creating entry-level AI-powered robots, smart drones, and intelligent cameras,and simplifies getting started with the Jetson Orin Nano series. Compact design, lots of connectors and up to 40 TOPS of AI performance make this developer kit perfect for transforming your visionary concepts into reality. With up to 80X the performance of Jetson Nano, it can run all modern AI models, including transformer and advanced robotics models.
The developer kit comprises a Jetson Orin Nano 8GB module and a reference carrier board that can accommodate all Orin Nano and Orin NX modules, providing an ideal platform for prototyping your next-gen edge AI product. The Jetson Orin Nano 8GB module features an Ampere GPU and a 6-core ARM CPU, enabling multiple concurrent AI application pipelines and high-performance inference. The carrier board boasts a wide array of connectors, including two MIPI CSI connectors supporting camera modules with up to 4-lanes, allowing higher resolution and frame rate than before.
Jetson runs the NVIDIA AI software stack, with available use-case-specific application frameworks, including NVIDIA IsaacTM for robotics, DeepStream for vision AI, and Riva for conversational AI. You can save significant time with NVIDIA OmniverseTM Replicator for synthetic data generation (SDG), and with NVIDIA TAO Toolkit for fine-tuning pretrained AI models from the NGCTM catalog.
Ecosystem partners offer additional AI and system software, developer tools, and custom software development. They can also help with cameras and other sensors, as well as carrier boards and design services for your product.
Jetson Orin modules are unmatched in performance and efficiency for robots and other autonomous machines, and give you the flexibility to create the next generation of AI solutions with the latest NVIDIA technology. Together with the world-standard NVIDIA AI software stack and an ecosystem of services and products, your road to market has never been faster.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Experienced - You will require a firm understanding of programming, the programming toolchain, and may have to make decisions on programming software or language. You may need to decipher a proprietary or specialized communication protocol. A logic analyzer might be necessary.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Competent - You will be required to reference a datasheet or schematic to know how to use a component. Your knowledge of a datasheet will only require basic features like power requirements, pinouts, or communications type. Also, you may need a power supply that?s greater than 12V or more than 1A worth of current.

I'm using this for distributed computing via BOINC. It constantly gets throttled due to over-current. It's only performing at about 2x my Jetson Nano, nowhere near the 6.6x CPU plus 5.4x CUDA performance boosts over the Nano NVIDIA claims.
I'll try to modify BOINC to use the Tensor Cores for FFTs to see if that boosts performance.
Easy to boot and start experimenting after you format the SD card. It's one of NVIDIA's greatest embedded AI products in terms of power and power efficiency.
