Happy Monday, everyone! As you know, we like to save Monday blog posts for special announcements. Really special announcements. Today, we are happy to co-announce the new NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ 2GB Developer Kit!
When we started carrying the Jetson Nano last year, we immediately fell in love with it and so did the rest of the community thanks to its reasonable price tag and powerful capabilities. Needless to say, we are excited to offer the new Jetson Nano 2GB and new versions of the DLI (Deep Learning Institute) Course and JetBot Kits. All three are now available for preorder, today!
Discover the power of AI and robotics with NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit. It’s small, powerful, and features a more economical price tag to lower the barrier to entry for you to get started in AI and Machine Learning. This means educators, students, and other enthusiasts can now easily create projects with fast and efficient AI using the entire GPU-accelerated NVIDIA software stack as well as cloud based tools. This time a WiFi adapter is included!
The Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit delivers incredible AI performance at a low price. It makes the world of AI and robotics accessible to everyone with the exact same software and tools used to create breakthrough AI products across all industries. There’s no better way or time to start learning and building with Machine Learning!
With today’s announcement of the Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit, NVIDIA empowers developers, researchers, students, and hobbyists to explore AI concepts in the most accessible way possible. Reinforcing its commitment to widening the accessibility to and innovation in the area of deep learning, NVIDIA has created a free, self-paced, online Deep Learning Institute (DLI) course, “Getting Started on AI with Jetson Nano.” The goal of the course is to build foundational skills to enable anyone to get creative with the Jetson Developer Kit.
Included in this version of the DLI Kit is a Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit, a 32GB microSD Card, a Logitech C270 Webcam, aUSB-C Wall Adapter, a USB-C to C cable, and a Reversible USB microB Cable. The only thing you will need is a computer with an Internet connection and the ability to flash your microSD card!
The SparkFun JetBot AI Kit is a robot platform powered by the NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit. This kit is developed and kitted by us here at SparkFun and is based on the open-source NVIDIA JetBot! We understand that not everyone has access to multiple 3D printers and a whole warehouse of electronics so we wanted to build a kit from ready to assemble parts to get you up and running as quickly as possible. The SparkFun JetBot AI Kit Powered by Jetson Nano 2GB is a great launchpad for creating entirely new AI projects for makers, students and enthusiasts who are interested in learning AI and building fun applications. It’s straightforward to set up and use and is compatible with many popular accessories.
Several interactive tutorials show you how to harness the power of AI to teach the SparkFun JetBot to follow objects, avoid collisions and more. The Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit offers useful tools like the Jetson GPIO Python library, and is compatible with common sensors and peripherals; including some new python compatibility with the SparkFun Qwiic ecosystem.
And that’s it! Remember, each of these new products are available for preorder, and we hope to be able to start shipping orders in four to five weeks. We will make sure that you are kept in the know when it concerns our shipping status on the Jetson Nano 2GB Developer Kit. Make sure to check back on Friday to learn more about the new Jetson Nano so until then, leave a comment below to let us know what you plan to make with this new version of the Jetson Nano!
