We saw Xavier NX can work as EP mode in the design guide.
Jetson Xavier NX brings two PCIe interfaces to the module pins for up to 5 total lanes (1 x4 + 1 x1) for use on the carrier board. The PCIe x4 interface operates up to Gen4 speed and supports both Root Port and Endpoint operation. The PCIe x1 interface operates only up to Gen3 speed and supports only Root Port operation. Figure 6-9 shows both the x1 and x4 interfaces as Root Ports. Figure 6-10 shows the x4 interfaces as an Endpoint.
So we would like to set 3 Xavier NX modules as EP mode and connect them to an Arm server through a PCIe Switch.
We followed figure 6-10 and
Jetson_AGX_Xavier_PCIe_Endpoint_Software_for_L4T.pdf (251.0 KB). But we cannot detect any Xavier NX.
So we want to confirm followed questions:
- Can Xavier NX be used as EP mode and connected to an Arm server？
- Whether the PCIe bus of Xavier NX supports PCIe Switch to expand connections?
Please give some suggestions.
