Memory Limitations, Adding SWAP, Extra Storage

We’re currently using the EMMC 16GB version of the Nano. We’re having limitation on RAM. We don’t really want to go up to a TX2 or Xavier ideally. Are there any connections to add RAM to the Nano or has anyone overcome these limitations by perhaps adding more storage on a custom PCBA and using SWAP?

I can’t answer about board customizing, but any kind of swap addition is standard for Linux and won’t be any different for a Jetson. However, you should consider that Jetsons have an integrated GPU which shares with system RAM, and some hardware (including the GPU for display or CUDA purposes) can only use physical RAM. If you are trying to increase memory useful for the GPU, then some other software vacating physical RAM might help, but the GPU will have no direct RAM use increase via swap.
