Aetina carrier board supports Jetson Orin NX and Orin Nano modules

Jan 24, 2023 — by Giorgio Mendoza 599 views

Aetina unveiled earlier this month an embedded platform compatible with the Jetson ORIN NANO 8GB and Jetson ORIN NX 16GB SoM models. This industrial grade AI platform offers 1x RJ45 GbE port, 1x HDMI port, 1x M.2 2242 slot and many other peripherals.

The preliminary datasheet specifies that the AIB-SO21/SO31 models are compatible with the Nvidia Jetson ORIN NANO 4GB/8GB SoM. The AIB-SN31/SN41 support the Jetson ORIN NX 8GB/16GB modules.


  • Jetson ORIN NANO 4GB/8GB – 20 TOPS/40 TOPS; 512 Core Ampere w/ 16 Tensor Cores; 1024 Core Ampere w/ 32 Tensor Cores; 6-core Arm Cortex-A78AE 1.5MB L2 + 4MB L3
  • Nvidia Jetson ORIN NX 8GB/16GB – 70 TOPS/100 TOPS; 1024 Core Ampere w/ 32 Tensor Cores;6-core Arm Cortex-A78AE 1.5MB L2 + 4MB L3; 8-core Arm Cortex-A78AE 2MB L2 + 4MB L3

This Jetson Orin carrier board features an M.2 M-Key 2242 which can be used for storage and an M.2 E-Key 2230 for Wi-Fi/Bluetooth modules. Aetina also mentioned that some variants of this carrier board will also feature an additional M.2 B-Key for LTE/5G connectivity.

The display interface only offers one HDMI port and camera support via 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 FPC connectors. As shown below, the carrier board also includes connectors for I/O interfaces such as UART, GPIOs, RS232, I2C and SPI.
