Greetings Nvidia Family,
We plan to design custom carrier board for Tx2/Tx2i.
We need 3x USB 3.0 (independent 5Gb/sec x 3) + 1 USB 2.0 (OTG) and Sata.
As we know correctly, Tx2/Tx2i can give us 3x USB 3.0 (Config 4) but they use same USB controller and that’s why bandwidth will split to 3.
Based on Table 16 and Figure 15 in Jetson Tx2/Tx2i OEM Product Design Guide and Refer to this topic:
We can use PCIe 1x4 slot to get 2 more USB 3.0 (5Gb/s x 2). But this PCIe cards use PCIe switches.
We have very limited space that why we don’t want to use PCIe Switch.
To achive this we need Config 5 right?
