What You Will Need:

  1. NVIDIA Jetson systems with stable network connection.
    (Allxon Agent is running on v3.04.2003 version or higher. Click here to update.)
  2. Host device with stable network connection.

  3. BSP artifact provided by Allxon.
    (Contact Allxon or your hardware vendor for the BSP artifact.)


1. Get Your BSP Artifact

BSP artifact is a highly customized content file that requires strict verification by both device hardware vendor and Allxon. Once the artifact has been tested and verified by your hardware vendor, the artifact will be uploaded to your Allxon Portal.

Log in to Allxon Portal and head over to the OTA Deployment page. The verified BSP artifact will appear in the Artifacts list.

💡 Note: If your BSP artifact doesn't appear in the Artifacts list after verification, you can contact Allxon or your hardware vendor for more support.
