The labels in the image correspond to the following:

  1. Power switch

  2. Power cable connection

  3. 1GbE RJ45 with connection to the Orin CCPLEX

  4. 1GbE RJ45 with connection to the Orin CCPLEX and BMC

  5. (4x) USB 3.2 Gen2 Type A

  6. HDMI-Input

  7. DisplayPort output from the Orin module.

  8. USB 3.2 Gen2 Type C connector

  9. (2x) QSFP28 ports (up to 100GbE per port)

  10. Line-Out

  11. MIC

  12. PCIe Gen5 single width slots (x8 connected). See Install Additional Cards for steps to remove the cover and access slot 13.

  13. PCIe Gen5 double width slot (x16 connected). The (4x) DisplayPorts depicted in the diagram are present only when the optional NVIDIA RTX A6000 was ordered from a distributor.

Observe the following precautions:

  • Only connect or disconnect a PCIe card (e.g., miniSAS or dGPU) when the system is powered down.

  • Apply extra care when plugging and removing PCIe cards to avoid stress, such as wearing, bending, or breaking, on the PCIe connectors.

Follow these instructions to install additional PCIe cards:

  1. Remove the cover as shown in the following image. Remove the three screws on the right side when facing the back panel.

  2. Remove the cover in the direction of A and B, as shown in the following image. The movement in the direction of A should be around 0.5 inch, or less than 1.5 cm.

  3. After the cover is removed, remove the screws on top of slot 13 before installing the card in the PCIe slot-13. You can now access the IO of the PCIe card from the developer kit back panel.

Note

NVIDIA IGX Orin Developer Kit dGPU Installation Guidelines (DA-11330-001) on the NVIDIA Product information database describes the chassis panel removal process in detail.
