Allied Vision Alvium CSI-2 camera series for all Jetson platforms TX2, Xavier and Nano

Allied Vision’s Alvium 1500C/1800C series offers a combination of embedded camera technology with the very best in industrial-grade camera design. A shared hardware platform and driver makes Alvium cameras very easy to integrate and upgrade. For the best solution, just select the right sensor, feature set and hardware options for your application.

One open-source driver for all camera models and Jetson platforms

As a camera manufacturer, Allied Vision wants the integration of different sensors and cameras to be as easy as possible. That’s why, we wrote one common driver that can be easily installed on Jetson and will support any of the currently available and future CSI-2 camera from the Alvium family and ultimately reduces development time. It also enables an easy switching between cameras, different resolutions and the Jetson platforms. The driver supports V4L2 and GStreamer, comes with installation documentation and examples.

Alvium MIPI CSI-2 cameras are currently available with resolutions from 0.5 to 20 megapixels with high-performance image sensors from ON Semiconductors and Sony Alvium camera overview: https://www.alliedvision.com/en/products/embedded-vision-cameras.html

Alvium CSI-2 cameras enable new designs for embedded applications with improved image quality. The innovative ALVIUM System on Chip (SoC) performs image corrections and preprocessing tasks onboard the camera instead of the embedded board. Unlike FPGAs, the ALVIUM SoC is extremely power efficient.

Besides the driver, Allied Vision offers various accessories, such as CSI-2 cables up to 420mm and adapters for the NVIDIA Jetson Developer Kits.
