Diamond Systems FLOYD

Converts Jetson Nano and Xavier Nx Into Complete Embedded System


The FLOYD carrier board converts the Nvidia Jetson Nano and Xavier NX modules into complete embedded systems by providing interface circuitry, I/O connectors for all module features, camera interfaces, power supply, and additional I/O. Camera inputs include 2 PoE Gigabit Ethernet ports, 3 MIPI/CSI 2/4-lane connectors, and 1 USB 3.0 port. MiniCard, M.2, and Micro SD sockets support I/O expansion and storage. FLOYD + NVIDIA redefine possibility; the combination of Nvidia’s performance/power efficiency and Diamond’s I/O enables a new generation of high-compute, low-cost solutions.

Floyd's multiple camera inputs provide increased versatility for use in a wide variety of imaging applications, which make up a substantial portion of all Jetson applications today. As with all Diamond products, Floyd is designed and built for reliable performance and extended operating temperature to meet the full capabilities of the Jetson modules.

With the Xavier NX module installed, Floyd offers 1 CAN 2.0B port. The standard configuration is non-isolated; isolation is available as a special order.

Floyd is supported by a full Linux BSP based on Nvidia Jetpack. This software is available as a free download from our support area.

JETBOX-Floyd - Complete System

Floyd is available as a complete system, with the Nano / NX module installed and preprogrammed with Diamond's customized Linux OS for Jetson, all assembled into a sturdy steel and aluminium enclosure. The enclosure provides expansion options for 2 additional DB9 connectors (serial port, GPIO, and/or CAN) as well as up to two SMA type antenna connectors for an installed M.2 or Minicard module.

FLOYD Product Configurations

Floyd is available in two configurations: FLD-BB01 offers the complete suite of I/O features, while FLD-BB02 targets lower-cost applications requiring less I/O. The BB02 model also omits the PCIe switch needed for the BB01 additional I/O, thereby enabling a full PCIe x4 link to the M.2 socket for potentially higher flash memory read/write speeds.

Floyd Cables

Most Floyd I/O other than the camera inputs is available using commercial connectors located along the front edge of the board. This arrangement simplifies the design of enclosures. The second serial port, GPIO signals, and CAN port (available with NX module only) do require cables.
