Jetson Nano and Jetson Xavier announcements

Jetson Nano is back! Availability for Jetson Nano Developer Kit (with 4GB memory) resumes Black Friday in the US, and worldwide in December. The price is $149. Also, Jetson Nano production modules will now be available until January 2027, an extension of two years. JetPack 4 sustaining releases will continue to support Jetson Nano devkits and production modules.

The Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit is now EOL, as are the Jetson AGX Xavier and Jetson Xavier NX Developer Kits. Jetson Xavier modules will remain in production until the dates specified on the Jetson Product Lifecycle page.

Great news NVIDIA Embedded for all our Allied Vision customers and prospects who want to evaluate and work on the #Jetson Platform with our Alvium Camera Series with GigE, USB 3.0 and MIPI CSI-2 support by Open Source Driver and ready to go Adapter Boards.

So there will be no plans to upgrade to jetpack5.x?

That is correct: Jetson Nano will remain on JetPack 4. Please see Jetson Software Roadmap for 2H-2021 and 2022

I don’t see Jetson Nano dev kits in stock at Arrow or any other supplier. Are there any updates on when they will be back in stock (in US/Canada)?

Hi @nickmertin, there are currently more Nano units en-route to the distributors, so they should have stock again within the next week or two.

Hi @dusty_nv,
that is some good news. Is there any information on upgrading the kernel from 4.x to 5+?


Hi @sirkilly, Jetson Nano will remain on JetPack 4.x with Linux kernel 4.x - for more information, please refer to this post:

shows the nvidia unreliability.

I was really hoping the old Nano would get a Jetpack upgrade since it is being kept around for a while. I am also unhappy that the AGX Xavier and Xavier NX are being EOLed. I have an AGX Xavier and can not afford to get into the Orin series as much as I want to.

Yes, it’s annoying that the software has reached a dead end. The Orin series is insanely expensive and the Nano series can do a heck of a lot in the right hands. Very hard to find an application that needs a >$500 component like that. And very naughty of Nvidia to bring out a product called “Orin Nano” when the price is anything but nano.

I console myself by thinking that at least the Jetson Nano is still in production.
