Noice! But... serial port?

yeah, that's a little odd

We thought about using it as a compo platform for NVScene but it kinda got lost along the way. That being said we can give it a shot in 2016 if there's enough interest.

Not scener, but HdkR from dolphin-emu has had one for a while: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=dolphin+jetson+tk1 (you can chat about it on freenode/#dolphin-dev if you like) It is awesome, but I'm still pissy they didn't make an armv8 (denver) one, though.

Its a board for embedded dev. Not having a serial port would be a serious omission, especially if you're bringing up a new os, or doing bootloader dev.

Not having serial ports on the dev boards at work would be a massive hinderance (I do embedded dev work).

There was a wild entry at Nordlicht 2014 on the Jetson


It's about running the Kinect v1 via libfreenect in a simple OpenGL program. A custom movement detection would then trigger some audio samples via OpenAL, as well as steer a ported JS/WebGL (to C/OpenGL) fluid simulation.

When setting up a "mirror" system for development (Ubuntu, opengl, gcc, geany, scripts, etc) it quickly lost all impressions of being "embedded". It's democoding on linux, basically. If you connect a large HDMI screen and USB keyboard/mouse, you will soon forget you're not on a desktop system ... except the speed, which was the main reason to setup the mirror system :D

It is possible to use Jetson TK1 without serial port.
It is also possible to update OS or driver without serial unless you got problems.

Serial port of Jetson is used to log kernel messages when you got boot, kernel or hardware problems.
It is also needed when you want to access u-boot on Jetson TK1.
I made 2 partitions in a SD card and installed Jetroid(Android for Jetson) and Ubuntu on it.
I have to type some commands of u-boot to select OS which is not booted in default.

At least, if you buy Jetson TK1, you need a Linux PC with USB port.
It is used to flash eMMC on Jetson TK1.
If you got problems or try OS related development, buy serial cable or serial to USB converter.

I'm still not developing any program on Jetson TK1, but I think it is possible to develop demo on it without serial port.

Jetson TK1 have 2 USB ports, HDMI output, LAN port, Audio jacks, SD card slot, SATA slot, etc.
So you can use it like PC.
I can use firefox and watch youtube.
But it has ARM CPU, not x86 CPU. You cannot install windows or x86 binaries.

Is'nt the Nvidia Shield Tablet essentially a Jestson TK1? Can also run Ubuntu natively on that device (all hardware fully working)

Again, if there's interest, we can do a demo compo on it next year.

I actually was interested in getting this board, because it looks interesting and I had a lot of fun programming for Raspberry Pi for last Revision. However, the board seems to be sold out in Germany.

Can you still get this from somewhere around here??

I'm trying to get better performance out of x11vnc <-> vncviewer. I like the idea of taking the tk1 with my lappy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WNR7Zh2XGEc

Well, I'm done. If anyone wants my well loved jetson tk1 it's in a wood-case now. Here's the http://www.ebay.com/itm/Jetson-TK1-dev-board-/291603759156
