Jetson TK1 DevKit

At NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference on Tuesday, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled the company's new Jetson TK1 DevKit, giving developers tools to create apps that employ computer vision, image processing and real-time data processing. The DevKit promises to harness Tegra K1's capabilities that will most immediately have an effect on the field of robotics, medical, avionics and auto industries. Huang actually invited an executive from Audi onstage, where we got a demonstration of Audi's future of self-driving cars. No, seriously, a car literally drove on stage all by itself. It was both frightening and amazing.

"Jetson TK1 fast tracks embedded computing into a future where machines interact and adapt to their environments in real time," explained Ian Buck, vice president of Accelerated Computing at NVIDIA. "This platform enables developers to fully harness computer vision in handheld devices, bringing supercomputing capabilities to low-power devices."

With NVIDIA's Tegra K1 at its heart, the company's Jetson platform reaps the benefits from NVIDIA's 192-core chip built on the Kepler architecture, the company explained. That means developers can toy around with the most advanced graphics and computee performance in a mobile form factor. Developers will be able to enable robots that can seamlessly navigate, for example, or cars to detect and avoid obstacles. Audi's demonstration showed a camera creating "fences" around detectable objects, which the car was able to interpret as places it couldn't drive.

This is NVIDIA's first developer platform for its Tegra K1, which was announced earlier this year at CES. It comes with an SD card slot, 2GB memory and input/output connectors for USB 3.0, HDMI, Gigabit Ethernet, SATA and audio. It also comes with complete support for CUDA 6.0 developer tool suite.

With a 192-core chip, NVIDIA fittingly priced the Jetson TK1 DevKit at $192, and it can be pre-ordered beginning today in the U.S. from NVIDIA's website. You can also pick it up from Microcenter and Newegg, or get it from AvionicDesign, SECO and Zotac in Europe.
