Jethro offers a compact, low-cost solution for the implementation of high-performance computing solutions based on the NVidia Jetson TX2/TX2i computer modules. Jethro provides access to most I/O features of the Jetson modules, including camera, Ethernet, USB, and serial. In addition, it features a unique data acquisition circuit with analogue input, analogue output, and digital I/O to enable Jethro to interface to the "real world" of analogue and digital sensors and controls.
All I/O on Jethro uses latching connectors for increased resistance to shock and vibration. This plus an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C make Jethro an ideal choice for deploying Jetson computing technology in vehicle or outdoor environments.
Diamond provides a complete Linux BSP for Jethro with built-in support for all I/O including the data acquisition features. A GUI provides convenient real-time control of the data acquisition I/O
Jethro contains an M.2 2242 size socket for the addition of up to 256GB of additional SATA-based mass storage. A micro-SD socket is also provided.
A PCIe MiniCard socket enables the installation of additional I/O to meet the needs of diverse applications. A modem socket on Jethro enables the installation of cost-effective and pre-approved Nimbelink™ Skywire® cellular modems featuring a range of global cellular standards.
