That's a pretty open question.
How do you want to connect it?

You have to plug it into something. What is that?

Sorry for my misunderstanding...

I want to connect it to Jetson Xevier NX. Now USB type A is used since I have a Spacemouse Compact. Maybe I will connect it by Bluetooth.

You will need to read the device yourself. We don't have any software that applies to embedded systems.
There are some forum entries on using a Raspberry Pi and Arduino.
For example this one.

Thank you !
I use Arduino to control robot, so I may be able to do that. I'll try.

The arduino/Pi code was done long ago with a SpaceNavigator. More recent devices have a slightly different data format. That thread mentions the required changes.
