So the Jetson Orin Nano will work with the Xavier NX carrier board?

Nvidias documentation says that the Jetson Orin Nano is pin compatible with the Jetson Orin NX

and the Document (DG-10931-001_v0.1 | April 2022) Nvidia Jetson Orin NX design guide states:

The Jetson Orin NX module is compatible with the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX Developer Kit. The Jetson Xavier NX Developer Kit carrier board design files are provided as a reference design. Not all the Jetson Orin NX features can be used on the Jetson Xavier NX Developer Kit.

So will the Jetson Orin Nano work with the Jetson Xavier NX carrier board?

Yes, it would be possible but as noted in the guide, not all Orin NX or Orin Nano features can be used on Jetson Xavier NX Developer Kit

So okay. If there’s no separate Jetson Nano developer kit. And if you don’t have your own hardware for the module. Is the expected use of these modules for someone that is prototyping a software solution to use a third party carrier board? Or is there another solution?

How does one with a jetson module create the equivalent hardware of the jetson nano developer kit was, but using the new module?

I’m interested in this carrier board: Gumstix Jetson Nano Xavier NX Snapshot Board - Gumstix Store

Is there any indication of which features won’t work with an Orin board? Or is it a case of trial and error to see what’s broken?

“looking at the pinout differences, we would be losing some extra usb port, some extra pcie lanes, no sdmmc, all those comes as an extension to the existing xavier nx features and therefore are incompatible with xavier boards.”

Does that seem correct to you @kayccc ?

For Software Development for Orin Nano, you can get started today with the Jetson AGX Orin Developer Kit and software emulation. See more details about emulation here: Develop for All Six NVIDIA Jetson Orin Modules with the Power of One Developer Kit | NVIDIA Technical Blog

For the migration between Xavier NX and Orin Nano, please reference the Migration Document: Jetson Download Center | NVIDIA Developer
