Nvidia Starts Shipping The Jetson TK1 Mobile Embedded Supercomputer


Nvidia is shipping the Jetson TK1 development kit, a supercomputer for developing embedded applications and devices.

Jetson TK1 is aimed at OEMs, including robotics, avionics, and medical device companies. It is also aimed at independent developers, researchers, makers, and hobbyists who would like a platform that will enable them to create technology such as robots, security devices, or anything that needs substantial parallel computing or computer vision in a small platform.

Available for pre-order today for $192 through the U.S. NVIDIA website as well as newegg.com and Micro Center, the kit includes a Jetson TK1 development board, an AC adapter with power cord, a USB cable for flashing, and our quick start guide.

Jetson TK1 incorporates Tegra K1, a mobile processor that features a Kepler GPU with 192 cores, an NVIDIA 4-plus-1 quad-core ARM Cortex-A15 CPU, integrated video encoding and decoding support, image/signal processing, and many other system-level features. The Kepler GPU in Tegra K1 is built on the same Kepler GPU architecture that is found in Nvidia's high-end GeForce, Quadro, and Tesla GPUs for graphics and computing. It supports CUDA 6 for computing and full desktop OpenGL 4.4 and DirectX 11 for graphics.

Tegra K1 is a parallel processor capable of over 300 GFLOP/s of 32-bit floating point computation and a low power footprint of 5 Watts for real workloads.

The Jetson TK1 is a 5" wide by 5" long PC board with a Tegra K1 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB 4.51 eMMC memory, and the following peripherals and ports.

- 1 Half mini-PCIE slot
- 1 Full size SD/MMC connector
- 1 Full-size HDMI port
- 1 USB 2.0 port, micro AB
- 1 USB 3.0 port,
- 1 RS232 serial port
- 1 ALC5639 Realtek Audio codec with Mic in and Line out
- 1 RTL8111GS Realtek GigE LAN
- 1 SATA data port
SPI 4MByte boot flash

In addition the following signals are available through an expansion port: DP/LVDS, Touch SPI, 1?4 + 1?1 CSI-2, GPIOs, UART, HSIC, and i2c.

Jetson TK1 is capable of supporting multiple cameras through USB 3.0 and GigE cameras. An additional GigE port can also be added via the PCI-e x1 port. The CSI 1?4 and 1?1 buses can be used to feed camera images directly into the integrated signal processor (ISP) on Tegra K1 (bypassing memory), for direct image processing.

Jetson TK1 runs Linux For Tegra (L4T), a modified Ubuntu 13.04 Linux distribution provided by NVIDIA. NVIDIA provides the board support package and software stack which includes the CUDA Toolkit, OpenGL 4.4 drivers, and the NVIDIA VisionWorks Toolkit.
