We’re in the process of manufacturing our own edge devices, powered by Jetson Nano, but there are supply chain concerns around a couple of the components in the Reference design (the Dev Kit), we have a couple ideas that I’m hoping you guys would be able to shed some light on:
Here are the parts we are looking to replace.
The Reference design specifies this part:
AT24C02D-MAHM-T Microchip Technology https://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/AT24C01D-AT24C02D-I2C-Compatible-Two-Wire-Serial-EEPROM-1Kbit-2Kbit-20006100A.pdf
Alternative Part we’re looking at:
AT34C04-X5M-T Microchip Technology https://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/Atmel-8827G-SEEPROM-AT34C04-Datasheet.pdf
Our concern here is that the reference part has 2K worth of memory, whereas the alternative has 4K. This could have impacts on page sizes, and a few other areas of operation. Our program is built in Python and sits in Docker containers, so we do not have access to low-level memory management, and rely on Jetpack (the OS) for the low-level management.
So my question is thus:
Will changing the EEPROM component specs affect Jetpack, or can I go ahead with swapping the component?
Any help here would be MASSIVELY appreciated :)
