Interfacing a camera with Jetson NX Development kit

I working on an application where I need to integrate a camera module (KLT Camera Modules) with Jetson NX Development Kit.

This camera module supports MIPI CSI protocol but it features AXE640124 (40 position) connector, however the development kit has different onboard connector.

How do I go about connecting this camera module with the development kit using MIPI CSI?


Welcome to the NVIDIA Developer forums! Your topic should be posted in the Jetson Xavier NX category. I will move it over for you.

A convert cable or jumping wires is necessary for this kind of connecting.

Thank you. Can you suggest an appropriate connector to connect this camera module - KLT Camera Modules

Secondly, I am making my own camera module as well. Please advise on which connector I should use on my camera module so that it can be easily connected with the connector available on the Jetson NX Development Kit.

We don’t have such recommendation for 3rd-party device. For the devkit connector info, you can refer to the BOM and schematic of devkit carrier board in DLC.

I understand you can not comment on third party components.

Can you please tell me the exact part number (specification) of the MIPI CSI connector available on Jetson NX Development Kit so that I can select an appropriate mating connector for the camera module I am designing?

You can find the answer in BOM of devkit in DLC. It’s 1-1734248-5, manufacture is TE Connectivity Ltd.

Thank you.

Hi, I understand that MIPI CSI protocol supports upto 4 MIPI lanes. This Jetson Xavier NX board has two 15 pin MIPI connectors each supporting two lanes. Does it mean that four MIPI lanes are divided among two connectors on the Board? Please confirm.

Secondly, If I want to use all four lanes of MIPI in a single application. Does it mean that I will have to combine the two connectors on Jetson kit by some external circuitry?
