Module Documentation

Please refer to Jetson AGX Xavier series documentation in the Jetson Download Center. Key documents include:

Jetson Safety Extension Package

The Jetson Safety Extension Package is available on request[*] and includes supporting software and documentation for customers who want to create IEC 61508 compliant products with Jetson AGX Xavier Industrial. Safety features enabled by the extension package include:

  • SCE (Safety Clustering Engine)
    • A dedicated Arm® Cortex®-R5 subsystem for integrated fault detection mechanisms and lock-step subsystems
    • Error propagation to SPE (Sensor Processing Engine) or external safety MCU
  • IST (In-System-Test)
    • LBIST (Logic Built In Self Test) & MBIST (Memory Built In Self Test) during power on/off to detect permanent and latent faults
  • Hardware Safety Manager
    • Monitor and collate error signals
  • SDL (Software Diagnostic Library) for SRP/CS (Safety Related Parts of Control System)
    • Software library for detecting permanent faults at runtime
  • 3LSS (Three-layer safety supervision)
    • Safety framework that streamlines collection and dispatch of of safety related hardware and software errors for structured handling
    • Provides protected channel for communication between different components of SRP/CS

A Safety design guide is also available with recommendations, guidelines, and ISO-13849 Cat. 2/3 PLd architecture examples as point of reference for customer safety designs.

To carrier board vendors:

Is there any carrier board available that supports this module or any ongoing plan for the support?

Hi there!

We support the Xavier Industrial Module on all of our AGX Xavier based products:

The carrier boards were designed for the regular AGX, so if you plan to use the new safety features for an IEC 61508 compliant environment, a carrier board modification will be necessary.

I have 2 modules of JAXI on my desk, but SDK manager don’t install system on it. By comand “LSUSB” I see it. By UART I don’t see anything. By HDMI on display also don’t see a signal.
SDK on manual install say to me that it see wrong device. What I need to do?

Hi max_kr90,

Please help to open a new topic with more details of your issue. Thanks

This is my Topik JAXI not boot - #22 by WayneWWW

Do you have jetson AXG industrial development kit available?

Dev kits are never anything except the non-industrial. You’d have to have a third party carrier board to work with an industrial.

Third party carrier boards yes, but also the reference carrier board included in Jetson AGX Xavier Developer Kit works fine with Jetson AGX Xavier Industrial.

I have a few questions.
What is the clock compared to the non industrial version and is the performance the same?
Will it produce less heat for the same work?

What is the clock compared to the non industrial version and is the performance the same?

See the tables here:
L4T Developer Guide: Supported Modes and Power Efficiency

Will it produce less heat for the same work?

The extended reliability features of the industrial module come at the cost of more heat, not less. Given an hypothetical balanced workload, the industrial module will produce .045 °C/W vs .035 °C/W for the commercial module. See the Jetson AGX Xavier Series Thermal Design Guide for details.

Hi,

I am currently looking for an AGXi to use for Cyber Security hardware development. This is a DoD related project and we have already placed 12 AGXi’s on a Purchase Order through Arrow. I seek to find an AGXi, even if it is used condition to further development. Another option was to find out who uses these in the industry and potentially buy it from them. Any information here would be helpful as time is of the essence!! Thank you!
