All three generations of Jetson solutions are supported by the same software stack, enabling companies to develop once and deploy everywhere. The Jetson platform is supported by the Jetpack SDK, which includes the board support package (BSP), Linux operating system, NVIDIA CUDA®, and compatibility with third-party platforms. DeepStream enables developers to quickly build and deploy efficient video analytics pipelines on Jetson.

The Jetson Software Stack

NVIDIA JetPack SDK is the most comprehensive solution for building AI applications. It bundles Jetson platform software including TensorRT, cuDNN, CUDA Toolkit, VisionWorks, GStreamer, and OpenCV, all built on top of L4T with LTS Linux kernel.
