e-CAM50_CUNANO - 5.0 MP NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ Camera

e-CAM50_CUNANO is a 5.0 MP 2-lane MIPI CSI-2 fixed focus color camera for NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ developer Kit. This camera is based on 1/2.5" AR0521 CMOS Image sensor from ON Semiconductor® with built-in Image Signal Processor (ISP). This powerful ISP helps to brings out the best image quality from the sensor and making it ideal for next generation of AI devices.

This camera can be directly connected to camera connector (J13) on the NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ developer Kit. e-CAM50_CUNANO is exposed as a standard V4L2 device and customers can use the V4L2 APIs to access this camera and control the same.
