Trying Out The Jetson TK1, NVIDIA's High-End Tegra K1 Board

When getting to the actual Jetson TK1 board, that's when I learned this board is actively cooled... Most of these ARM development boards are passively-cooled so it came as a bit of a surprise to see a small heatsink fan on the Tegra K1 SoC, but that's somewhat understandable given this high-performance SoC -- hopefully Tegra K1 consumer devices won't end up being actively cooled.

The 2GB of system memory comes from Hynix with a part number of H5TC4G63AFR 252A. Some items to point out on the PCB include an expansion header, JTAG header, standard SD card slot, a 4-pin molex connector for powering a Serial ATA drive in conjunction with the standard sized Serial ATA data port, reset / power / force-recovery buttons, and the mini PCI Express slot.
