Altough a similar question has been asked about the differences between the developer kit and modules, I do have a related question. I believe I understand that the modules tend to be more expensive because of extended warranty and on-board storage.
But I want to ask specifically about “Jetson developer kits are not intended for production use.” as stated in the FAQ: https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/faq.
Why wouldn’t or couldn’t any developer kit be intended for production use, as the developer kit contains everything the module contains by itself plus more, namely the carrier board, which may already be a satisfactory board for production use? It says that you attach it (the module) to a carrier board designed or procured for your end product but again; the developer kit overall may be sufficient or even better than when designing a board seperately. Am I missing something?
Note, that I’m specifically asking for the TX2, but this question may apply in general to any other Jetson Kits.
