I think that’s why there is a limit of 5 per customer. Sure, you could try to get around that but I think you could probably get in trouble if you got caught. Anywhere but on the Nvidia store they’re marked up anyway. If you tried to order more than your share from Nvidia, they would know.
Anyway, I like the deal. It encourages development and experimentation. Nvidia may feel pushing the Jetson platform using the Nano as a wedge is more valuable than the loss they’re taking on the dev boards themselves.
I’m pretty sure I remember when I ordered mine that it said 5 per customer. I may be bizarrely misremembering it (wetware does that), but I’m also pretty sure I saw it. I have no doubt you can order 80 from some suppliers, but how they source those is why they’re 160 a piece and not 99, i suspect.
@nvidia? Is my wetware malfunctioning or does the Nano have a 5 per customer limit on your store?
The module with SD card slot only ships in the devkit, but you can place larger orders for the devkit through distributors. Likewise the production module with 16GB eMMC will be available individually from distributors.
