According to Nvidia, the system-on-module (SoM) measures 69.6 x 45 mm and is connected via a 260Pin SO-DIMM connector. The CPU part is an 8-core Arm Cortex-A78AE v8.2 64-bit core with a maximum frequency of 2GHz, 2MB of L2 cache, and 4MB of L3 cache; the GPU is based on the Ampere architecture, with 32 Tensor Cores and 1024 CUDA cores, with a maximum frequency of 918MHz; onboard 16GB of LPDDR5, 128 bits, with a bandwidth of 102.4 GB/s.
The Jetson Orin NX 16GB module supports external NVMe SSDs but lacks built-in storage. Nvidia’s partners provide a variety of carrier boards and peripherals, such as sensors, cameras, various connectivity modules (5G, 4G, Wi-Fi), and more.
Nvidia says the Jetson Orin NX 16GB module is unmatched in performance and efficiency for small, low-power robotics and autonomous machines, making it ideal for products like drones and handheld devices. The module can be easily used in advanced applications in manufacturing, logistics, retail, agriculture, medical and life sciences, all in a truly compact, energy-efficient package.
