Seeed Studio Carrier Boards for NVIDIA Jetson Modules

Seeed Studio is now shipping the J101 and J202 carrier boards for the Jetson NX form factor modules. This includes the Jetson Nano, Nano 2GB, Xavier NX and TX2 NX. The Seeed carrier boards are the same physical dimensions as the NVIDIA developer kits.

The J101 is priced at $69 USD, and the J202 is priced at $139.

The Seeed carrier boards are for use with NVIDIA Jetson production modules. The production modules replace the micro SD card of the developer module with eMMC. The J101 adds a micro SD card slot to the carrier board, and is similar to the Jetson Nano 2GB Dev Kit carrier board. The J202 is very similar to the feature set of the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX Dev Kit, with a few extra niceties added.
