Ziggy offers a compact, low cost platform for evaluation of Jetson computer modules as well as implementation of a marketable solution for AI and machine learning applications. Ziggy provides access to the most popular I/O features of the Jetson modules, including camera,
Ethernet, USB, and serial. In addition it features a unique data acquisition circuit with analog input, analog output, and digital I/O to enable Ziggy to interface to the "real world" of analog and digital sensors and controls.
Diamond provides a complete Linux BSP for Ziggy with built-in support for all I/O including the data acquisition features. A GUI provides convenient real-time control of the data acquisition I/O.
The ZiggyBox™ is a cost-effective, compact, complete turnkey Jetson computing solution consisting of a Jetson TX2/TX21i module installed on a Ziggy carrier board and housed in an enclosure with table-top, wall mount, or DIN-rail mount capability.

The ZiggyBox solution incorporates the Ziggy carrier board in a sturdy, miniature box. Everything needed for a complete system is provided in the ZiggyBox. Easy access connectors ensure data acquisition, Ethernet, HDMI, USB3.0 and USB2.0,WIFI, BT and COM/DIO are accessible. One side of the Ziggy Box is dedicated for heat sink cooling and providing a solution with a fan.
Ziggy contains a full-fledged analog and digital I/O circuit that provides control and monitoring of real-world events such as sensor inputs, temperature control, keypads/switches, and industrial processes. The 6 analog inputs feature 0-3.3V input range and programmable 12-bit up to 16-bit resolution, with user-controllable filtering and averaging for noise reduction. The 2 analog outputs offer 12-bit resolution and 0-3.3V output range. The 13 DIO feature 3.3V logic levels. All features are supported by Diamond's built-in data acquisition driver software, featuring a programming library with application demos plus an interactive GUI-based control program that offers real-time access and control.
