I’m looking at table 79 of the TX2 OEM Product Design Guide (http://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/dlc/jetson-tx2-oem-product-design-guide), and I don’t fully understand the Max Trace Length parameter. The specified requirement (for RX and TX) is 223mm. However, the Jetson carrier board brings those signals out to the GPIO Expansion Header, and the distance between the Tegra socket and the GPIO expansion header is significantly longer than that, even in a straight line.
Am I misinterpreting the table or does the Jetson carrier board use some design techniques to get around the trace length limit?
Also, the Max Trace Length row of Table 79 also says “See Note 2”, but there doesn’t appear to be a “Notes” section within chapter 12.5 Is it missing?
