IGX Orin Board and ConnectX-7
The high-level block diagram of the IGX Orin Board is shown in Figure 6‑1.
Instead of designing with the NVIDIA Orin SoC chip mounted directly on the board, the IGX Orin Board includes connectors for plugging in the Orin Module. The NVIDIA Orin SoC power subsystem, the major memory components, and temperature sensor are already on the IGX Module.
