Can you remove the heatsink and chip and transfer to another board?

asking for a friend…

As long as you first properly shut down the Jetson Nano module, you can unplug it, and plug it into another carrier board.
The module does not support hot plugging in any way I can tell, though – make sure there’s no power when you un-plug and re-plug it.

Interesting. So if I’ve got a carrier board that went bad…is it easier to to just move the mini SD over to a whole new unit or swap the module?

I don’t want to have to re-do all my setup. Just wondering if it’ll migrate everything if I move the card.
