Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX - Developer Kit image


I would like to test BalenaOS is a Nvidia Jetson Xavier NX developer kit. I’m checking the available images and I only see the eMMC image, not the SD Card image. Jetson Nano image has an SD Card image so I was hoping that it would be the same for the Xavier NX…


Is there a way to test the Xavier NX developer kit with the SD Card?

Thanks in advance!

Hi there Eugenio, after asking our Devices team, we do believe that if you flash the eMMC image to an SD Card, you should in fact be able to boot the board. I do not have a Xavier NX to test this myself, but if you give it a try let us know how it goes. Thanks!

Thanks, I’ll check it out and let you guys know, do you have a timeline for a production ready image for the NX? It says only development kit, so I’m not sure if it will be production ready.


We do a full series of compliance tests, and release images in our Staging environment prior to pushing them to balenaCloud, so I suspect this naming convention of “Development Kit” is used simply because that is what Nvidia has chosen to name the device: https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/jetson-xavier-nx-devkit

Great then! I’ll give it a try and let you guys know :slight_smile:
