Multi-Camera Solution for NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin

Up to 6 cameras can be connected to the host platform, transmitting video data up to a distance of 15m with very low latency By Mike Ball / 13 Sep 2022

Multi-camera solution for NVIDIA Jetsone-con Systems has launched the NileCAM81_CUOAGX, a 4K HDR GMSL2 multi-camera solution for the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin and Xavier platforms. Based on the half-inch AR0821 sensor from onsemi, it features a pixel size of 2.1µm x 2.1µm, offering high sensitivity and great detail even in extremely low lighting conditions.

The multi-camera solution has multiple pipelines that transfer high-resolution images and videos to high-performance host platforms such as the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin and Xavier. Up to 6 cameras can be connected to the host platform, reliably transmitting video data up to a distance of 15m with very low latency. The system is ideal for a range of drone and robotics applications such as autonomous mobile vehicles and unmanned tractors for agriculture.

Gomathi Sankar, BU Head – Industrial cameras at e-con Systems, commented: “NVIDIA Jetson ORIN and AGX Xavier are the most powerful energy-efficient processors for autonomous machines. Such machines require superior quality video feed for object detection, recognition and characterization. 4K video feed and HDR performance are essential for such operations. NileCAM81_CUOAGX is a perfect fit for such applications.”

“The NileCAM81_CUOAGX is based on 1/2inch 4K sensor AR0821 with high dynamic range up to 140dB. The built-in ISP allows the user to get best-in-class performance with zero processing on the host. NileCAM81 comes with an automotive-grade GMSL2 interface that can withstand high vibration, making the camera ideal for various kinds of robots.”
