e-CAM21_CUTX2 - 2MP Sony Ultra-low light Jetson TX2 Camera

e-CAM21_CUTX2 is a 2MP Ultra-Lowlight 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 camera board for NVIDIA® Jetson TX2 developer kit. This camera is based on 1/2.8" SONY IMX290 CMOS Sensor, one of the most popular Sony's STARVIS® sensor. Its effective pixel back-illuminated technology with improved sensitivity in the visible-light and near infrared light enables customers to capture images even in absolute darkness. This Starlight Camera uses NVIDIA's on-board Jetson TX2 Image Signal Processor (ISP) to perform all the Auto functions (Auto White Balance, Auto Exposure control) and significantly, improved image quality. It has S-mount (M12) lens holder which allows customers to choose and use the lens according to their requirement.

This camera can be directly interfaced to camera connector(J22) on the NVIDIA® Jetson TX2 developer Kit. e-CAM21_CUTX2 is exposed as a standard V4L2 device and customers can use NVIDIA's 'libargus' APIs to access this camera and control the same.
