e-con Systems has launched a new embedded camera solution for the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX artificial intelligence developer kit. The e-CAM50_CUNX is based around the ON Semiconductor AR0521 1/ 2.5-inch 5-megapixel AR0521 CMOS image sensor. Combined with the Jetson Xavier NX, the new embedded MIPI CSI-2 camera is ideal for machine vision applications for drones and other autonomous vehicles.
Featuring an on-board high-performance Image Signal Processor (ISP) chip that performs an array of functions such as Auto White Balance and Auto Exposure Control) in addition to complete ISP functions, the e-CAM50_CUNX is provided with an S-Mount lens holder to support a wide range of different lenses.
Ashok Babu, President of e-con Systems, commented: “The e-CAM50_CUNX camera module for Xavier NX morphs the Jetson Xavier NX into an edge AI powerhouse for vision. The low noise, excellent image quality, ready-to-use 5MP camera module captures the world into pixel data to be crunched by Jetson’s powerful CPU+GPU combination. The combination of the supercomputer-performance Jetson Xavier NX and state-of-the-art 5MP e-CAM50_CUNX will be an ideal solution for high-performance AI systems like autonomous mobile robots, smart medical diagnostic instruments, AOI systems and smart city applications.”
