Supported Platforms,

NileCAM21_CUXVR is a Full HD color GMSL2 synchronized multi-camera solution featuring High Dynamic Range (HDR) and LED Flickering Mitigation (LFM). This camera kit is designed to work with NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ developer kit with 15m coaxial cable. It is based on the 1/2.5" AR0233AT CMOS image sensor with new 3.0 µm dual conversion gain BSI pixel technology from onsemi®. The NileCAM21_CUXVR is designed to stream 15m away from the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ developer kit (host processor) with very low latency. NileCAM21_CUXVR allows to connect upto six NileCAM21 cameras and enables synchronized Full HD streaming at 30 fps simultaneously.

To speed up the product development process, e-con Systems also offers a fully integrated NileCAM21_CUXVR camera kit, comprising one NileCAM21 camera and a deserializer board that plugs into the NVIDIA® Jetson AGX Xavier™ developer kit. This allows customers to connect a maximum of six cameras and enables synchronized Full HD streaming at 30 fps simultaneously. Its High Dynamic Range (HDR) of 120dB, LED flickering mitigation (LFM), low light capability and 15m cable support make this camera ideal for industrial and outdoor applications such as high-end surround view systems, unmanned guided vehicles (UGV), robotics, agriculture automation, industrial vehicles, industrial long-range applications and so on.
