Diamond Systems Jethro offers a compact, low cost solution for implementation of high-performance computing solutions based on the NVidia Jetson TX2/TX2i computer modules. Jethro provides access to most I/O features of the Jetson modules, including camera, Ethernet, USB, and serial. In addition it features a unique data acquisition circuit with analog input, analog output, and digital I/O to enable Jethro to interface to the "real world" of analog and digital sensors and controls.
All I/O on Jethro uses latching connectors for increased resistance to shock and vibration. This plus an operating temperature range of -40 to +85°C make Jethro an ideal choice for deploying Jetson computing technology in vehicle or outdoor environments. Diamond provides a complete Linux BSP for Jethro with built-in support for all I/O including the data acquisition features. A GUI provides convenient real-time control of the data acquisition I/O. Jethro contains an M.2 2242 size socket for the addition of up to 256GB of additional SATA-based mass storage. A micro-SD socket is also provided. A PCIe minicard socket enables the installation of additional I/O to meet the needs of diverse applications. A modem socket on Jethro enables the installation of cost-effective and pre-approved Nimbelink Skywire cellular modems featuring a range of global cellular standards.
Jethro contains a full-fledged analog and digital I/O circuit that provides control and monitoring of real-world events such as sensor inputs, temperature control, keypads/switches, and industrial processes. The 6 analog inputs feature 0-3.3V input range and programmable 12-bit up to 16-bit resolution, with user-controllable filtering and averaging for noise reduction. The 2 analog outputs offer 12-bit resolution and 0-3.3V output range. The 13 DIO feature 3.3V logic levels. All features are supported by Diamond's built-in data acquisition driver software, featuring a programming library with application demos plus an interactive GUI-based control program that offers real-time access and control.
