In my research project, I need to connect Jetson TK1 boards to a desktop PC to exchange data between them in higher throughout than using gigabit ethernet.
So far, I could not find any helpful information on this issue.
Today, I found an interesting article “Low-Power Sensing and Autonomy With NVIDIA Jetson TK1” that introduces a case study of clustering several Jetson TK1 boards through Non-tranparent bridging of a PCIe switch. (http://devblogs.nvidia.com/parallelforall/low-power-sensing-autonomy-nvidia-jetson-tk1/)
This clustering example seems to be a clue to solve the issue I am struggling with.
Unfortunately, the descriptions in the article about clustering Jetson TK1s is not very clear to follow directly.
So I am posting this thread to ask help for resolving the issue.
In particular, I want the following questions to be answered.
- Can I connect more than one Jetson TK1 boards to a desktop PC though PCIe?
- If so, what additional devices are required? (for example, PCIe cable, a standalone PCIe switch (or bridge?), or any adapter cards…)
- Can any one provide me with links to the products available?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
