Supported Platforms,

Nile3CAM85_CUOAGX is an 8 MP ultra-low light GMSL3 camera for NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ / Orin™ development kit. It houses Nile3CAM85 - a 1/2.8" Sony® Starvis™ IMX715 camera module.

With a coaxial cable length of up to 15m and data transfer of up to 12 Gbps, Nile3CAM85_CUOAGX with Gigabit Multimedia Serial Link 3 (GMSL3) offers greater flexibility to place the cameras in mechanically challenging designs.

The flexibility of coaxial cable and the ability to carry video data of HD @ 132fps, Full HD @ 90fps, and 4K @ 90fps, control data, and power in a single cable makes Nile3CAM85_CUOAGX camera fast (low latency), flexible and yet reliable.

Also, this multi-camera solution connects up to four 8 MP custom lens camera modules with the Jetson Xavier™/ Orin™ development kit. Nile3CAM85_CUOAGX is also backward compatible with GMSL2. SW2 switch is used for selecting GMSL3 or GMSL2 mode.
