OKdo, part of Electrocomponents, has announced that it is adding the NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit to its range.

The Jetson Nano Developer Kit comes with out-of-the-box support for full desktop Linux, compatible with many peripherals and accessories, ready-to-use projects and tutorials to help makers get started. The platform now brings artificial intelligence (AI) applications within the reach of makers, inventors, designers and engineers.

The Jetson Nano is an AI development kit offering high-performance and power-efficient computing. It’s built on the same architecture and software that powers some of the world’s fastest supercomputers and features NVIDIA’s JetPack SDK, which is built on CUDA-X and is a complete AI software stack with accelerated libraries for deep learning, computer vision, computer graphics and multimedia processing to support the Jetson Nano.

Compact, but powerful, the Jetson Nano platform delivers 472 Gflops of computing performance, consuming as little as 5W, making it suitable for object detection, video search, face recognition and heat mapping. It supports high-resolution sensors, can process multiple sensors in parallel and has modern neural networks on each sensor stream. It complements many popular AI frameworks, so it’s easy for developers to integrate into their products.

“OKdo is passionate about providing SBC and IoT solutions to anyone who has an idea they want to bring to life and working with NVIDIA’s world-leading technology is perfectly in sync with that vision,” said Richard Curtin, Global SVP Technology at OKdo.

“The Jetson Nano Developer Kit is ideal for bringing the power of modern AI to a small, easy-to-use platform--enabling the development of AI-powered robots, drones, intelligent video analytics enabled-devices, AI IoT devices, and other autonomous machines,” said Murali Gopalakrishna, Head of Product Management for autonomous machines at NVIDIA. “OKdo’s strong position in the electronics development maker community will enable developers to get engaged and develop new and exciting AI applications.”
