Art 3D/VR challenge – Jetson TX1 module with Auvidea J100 carrier lite board

Jetson TX1 works perfectly when mounted on Auvidea J100 carrier board. It is powered with 12V, starts automatically and boots without any troubles.

TX1 + J100 is fully independent platform. Please see the photo below which presents working setup with extra USB key for wireless keyboard/touchpad (on the right), HDMI output (at the back), MIPI/CSI-2 output (at the back), power cable (on the left) and Wifi antennas (on the left).
