Is it possible to increase the VIC module frequency on DRIVE AGX?

Please provide the following info:
Hardware Platform: DRIVE AGX Xavier™ Developer Kit
Software Version: DRIVE Software 10
Host Machine Version: native Ubuntu 18.04
SDK Manager Version:

Hi all,

Is there a way to manually set and increase the operating frequency of the Video Image Compositor Unit (VIC) on the DRIVE AGX platform?

I have seen a post on Jetson Xavier AGX forum ( where they provide a way to manually configure and increase the VIC operating frequency as follows:

Execute the following steps to run VIC in max clock :

1. Disable runtime suspend of VIC

$ echo on > /sys/devices/13e10000.host1x/15340000.vic/power/control

2. Set userspace governor

$ echo userspace > /sys/devices/13e10000.host1x/15340000.vic/devfreq/15340000.vic/governor

3. Set max_freq

$ cat /sys/devices/13e10000.host1x/15340000.vic/devfreq/15340000.vic/available_frequencies
$ echo [max_freq_val] > /sys/devices/13e10000.host1x/15340000.vic/devfreq/15340000.vic/max_freq

4. Set target frequency

$ echo [freq_val] > /sys/devices/13e10000.host1x/15340000.vic/devfreq/15340000.vic/userspace/set_freq

I tried to perform the same on DRIVE AGX but I could not achieve it, due to lack of “/sys/devices/13e10000.host1x/15340000.vic/devfreq” directory.

Also, is there an equivalent tool to the jetson_clocks application on DRIVE AGX to configure it in maximum performance mode?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Best regards,

Dear @dgarba,
DRIVE platform is configured to run in max performance mode already
