I have 2 Jetson Nanos here, with the T100 shield from Geekworm (this thing: https://geekworm.com/collections/nvidia/products/nvidia-jetson-nano-nvme-m-2-ssd-shield-t100-v1-1) and I’m struggling to power them.
I need to use the Jetson Nano in an embedded application that prevents me from using the provided power supply, and the only power line available to me is 12V 3A. For this reason I have procured a TracoPower THN 15-1211 DC DC converter (https://nl.rs-online.com/web/p/products/438272?cm_mmc=NL-PPC-DS3A--google--3_NL_NL_M_A_and_C_BMM--tracopower%7Cisolated_dc_dc_converters--%2Bthn+%2B15+%2B1211&matchtype=b&kwd-157446001735&gclid=CjwKCAiA3OzvBRBXEiwALNKDP2LHESEmwgIquHDnXLF0O-T1HkJpGaBIGulvAan2imf8ls5KZNQNahoCdlMQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds) which is capable of delivering 5V at 3A (15W)
The converter works great, as I have tested it on some simple circuitry, but when I try to power my Jetson Nanos with them, the Nano doesn’t complete the boot. I have a screen connected to it and I see the Nvidia logo on screen for a few seconds and then the boot stops.
My Jetson boards work without issues when powered with their normal wall-adapter power supply.
Would you have any idea why I cannot boot the Nano with a 5V3A supply? Note that I can adjust the output voltage of my converter, and I’ve already tried with a 5.35 output and it still behaves the same.
I’d be happy to receive any suggestion.
