Jetson TX2 without wifi antenna


Can I use the Jetson TX2 without the wifi antennas? I will be not using wifi on this application, but I am worried that I can burn the TX2 if I turn it on without it.

Thank you

I’m not even sure turning on WiFi without antennas would damage it, but I’ve used them for years without antennas (I too do not enable WiFi).

Do you mean to just disable Wi-Fi on Ubuntu desktop, as a normal user or some special configuration?

Any method at all for disable is fine. The GUI item will work. If for some reason you leave it on I don’t think there is enough energy that there would be any danger of damage anyway. It’d just be extra EM noise. I suppose if someone were close enough to it, then it would even work.

Thank you!
