Unveiling the NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2GB and Other NVIDIA GTC 2020 Announcements

 Unveiling the NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2GB and Other NVIDIA GTC 2020 Announcements 

NVIDIA Jetson Nano 2GB Press Release

I have given this one a test run, it has all the features you like for Jetson, with just 2 GB less RAM and 2 less USB ports.   This is a very affordable device to do cool apps.

  • 128-core NVIDIA MaxwellTM 
  • 64-bit Quad-core ARM A57 (1.43 GHz)

  • 2 GB 64-bit LPDDR4 (25.6 GB/s bandwidth)

  • Gigabit Ethernet

  • 1x USB 3.0 Type A ports, 2x USB 2.0 Type A ports, 1x USB 2.0


  • HDMI

  • WiFi


  • 1x MIPI CSI-2 connector

  • MicroSD Connector

  • 12-pin header (Power and related signals, UART)

  • 100mm x 80mm x 29mm

  • USB-C Port for Power

Depending where you or or how you buy the package you may need to buy a power supply and USB WiFi.

All of my existing workloads have been working fine in the 2GB version, but with a very nice cost saving.  The setup is easy, the system is fast, I have to highly recommend anyone looking for a quick way to do Edge AI and other edge workloads a try.   This could be a decent machine for learning.   I hooked mine up to a monitor, keyboard and mouse and I could use it right away for edge development and also as a basic desktop.   Nice work!  I might need to get 11 more of these.   These will run MiNiFi agents, Python and Deep Learning classifications at ease.

NVIDIA didn't stop with the ultimate low-cost edge device, they have some serious enterprise updates as well:

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice

Ingesting Drone Data From DJII Ryze Tello Drones Part 1 - Setup and Practice In Part 1, we will setup our drone, our communication environment, capture the data and do initial analysis. We will eventually grab live video stream for object detection, real-time flight control and real-time data ingest of photos, videos and sensor readings. We will have Apache NiFi react to live situations facing the drone and have it issue flight commands via UDP. In this initial section, we will control the drone with Python which can be triggered by NiFi. Apache NiFi will ingest log data that is stored as CSV files on a NiFi node connected to the drone's WiFi. This will eventually move to a dedicated embedded device running MiniFi. This is a small personal drone with less than 13 minutes of flight time per battery. This is not a commercial drone, but gives you an idea of the what you can do with drones. Drone Live Communications for Sensor Readings and Drone Control You must connect t

NiFi on Cloudera Data Platform Upgrade - April 2021

CFM 2.1.1 on CDP 7.1.6 There is a new Cloudera release of Apache NiFi now with SAML support. Apache NiFi Apache NiFi Registry See:   For changes: Get your download on: To start researching for the future, take a look at some of the technical preview features around Easy Rules engine and handlers. Make sure you use the latest possible JDK 8 as there are some bugs out there.   Use a recent v

Advanced XML Processing with Apache NiFi 1.9.1

Advanced XML Processing with Apache NiFi 1.9.1 With the latest version of Apache NiFi, you can now directly convert XML to JSON or Apache AVRO, CSV or any other format supported by RecordWriters.   This is a great advancement.  To make it even easier, you don't even need to know the schema before hand.   There is a built-in option to Infer Schema. The results of an RSS (XML) feed converted to JSON and displayed in a slack channel. Besides just RSS feeds, we can grab regular XML data including XML data that is wrapped in a Zip file (or even in a Zipfile in an email, SFTP server or Google Docs).
