Sprocket Carrier for NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX2/TX2i

  • Slimmest design possible in Z-axis – All components fit “under” TX2/TX2i/TX1 module
  • Extremely Small Size: 87mm x 50mm (3.425″ x 1.968″)
  • 1x USB OTG, 1 x4 lane MIPI CSI-2, 2x 3.3V UART, I2C, 4x GPIO
  • +12V to +16V DC Input Range
  • Extended Temperature Range -40°C to +85°C (Sprocket Carrier)

More Information

Connect Tech’s Sprocket Carrier for NVIDIA® Jetson™ TX2 and TX2i is designed to match the NVIDIA Jetson module form factor. The Sprocket’s design includes 1x USB OTG, 1 x4 lane MIPI CSI-2, 2x 3.3V UART, 2x I2C, and 4x GPIO.

This design provides our smallest and lowest profile solution yet. The Sprocket and Jetson TX2, TX2i, or Jetson TX1 stack can be mounted flat in the smallest of spaces, perfect for space constrained payloads such as that of a drone.

Jump right in to your next project with your Jetson TX2, TX2i, or TX1 module and Sprocket.
