Arrow announces JetCarrier96 carrier board reference design
Global technology solutions provider, Arrow Electronics, has announced JetCarrier96, a 96Boards Enterprise Edition-compliant carrier board for the NVIDIA Jetson family of system-on-modules (SoM).
JetCarrier96 enables customers to accelerate custom carrier board designs for applications such as autonomous machines, intelligent vision, diagnostic healthcare imaging, and AIoT.
Arrow will showcase JetCarrier96 at electronica 2022 (Nov 15 – 18, Munich).
To support rapid prototyping, the JetCarrier96 carrier board follows a standard microATX form factor and will work with readily available power supplies, chassis, and many desktop computer peripherals.
The JetCarrier96 reference design was developed with the latest technologies to speed time to market. JetCarrier96 supports high-speed peripheral expansion via four PCIe card slots, four USB 2.0, four USB 3.2 Gen 2, and a 1 Gb Ethernet LAN. JetCarrier96 supports sensor expansion via one 96Boards Mezzanine connector, one Qwicc-Compatible connector, one mikroBUS socket, and two 15-pin camera connectors.
