NileCAM21_CUOAGX is a GMSL2 HDR camera for NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin. It is based on the ARO233AT sensor from onsemi. One of the key differentiators of the camera is that it comes with a combination of HDR and LFM (LED Flicker Mitigation) - making it perfect for a wide variety of outdoor applications. This long-distance camera uses a shielded coaxial cable with a FAKRA connector to connect the camera to the host and enables transmission of data up to a distance of 15 meters. This Full HD camera also comes with a high-performance Image Signal Processor (ISP) which means that it is highly optimized for the best possible image output.

NileCAM21_CUOAGX is a multi-camera solution with the ability to connect up to 6 cameras for synchronized streaming. It also supports an asynchronous mode in case your application demands it. The GMSL2 camera transfers Full HD data in the uncompressed UYVY format at 30 fps while a frame rate of 60 fps can be achieved at the VGA resolution. The support for NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin also makes this camera an ideal solution for even some of the most data-hungry embedded vision applications.
