More Information

Connect Tech’s Quark Carrier is an affordable, ultra small, and feature rich carrier for AI Computing at the Edge. Just slightly larger than the Jetson SODIMM module, it’s ideal for vision applications, inference, and unmanned payloads. Compatible with the Jetson Nano, TX2 NX and Xavier NX SoMs, users can seamlessly transition between modules should their processing needs change.

Quark’s design includes a rich I/O set including 1x USB 3.1, 2x GbE, 2x 2-lane MIPI CSI-2, 1x USB OTG, 1x SD card slot, 3x 3.3V UART, 2 x I2C, 1x CAN 2.0b, and 1x SPI as well as positive locking IO connectors optimized for rugged environments.

While Quark is compatible with NVIDIA Jetson Nano, TX2 NX, and Xavier NX SoMs, some I/O availability will change across modules. View the Quark Compatibility Specifications for a full breakdown.
