Jetson Nano + ArduCam imx477

Hi all,

I have an issue that showed up with my Jetson Nano + image sensor imx477. I have already set it up and got it all working for some time. I moved the assembly to a different setup and now my image sensor is not autofocusing like it should when I call the script I made to autofocus. I have moved it before and it worked like normal so I am kind of confused on why its not working this time. I have not changed the script as well.

Does anyone know of possible issues or software updates that I might need to look at?

Thank you

Jetson don’t support auto focus. Suppose you need to adjust the focus position to infinity manually.

Correct. Initially it does not support but we were able to manipulate the program to replicate an autofocusing routine with the imx477 image sensor. I know this is a Nvidia forum but do you think discharge could backflow through the mipi cord to the image sensor and burn chips on its board? The Jetson provides 3.3 volts but I cannot think of any other hardware issue that would all of a sudden disrupt my routine. How often do mipi cords go bad?

What is mipi cords?

MIPI Camera Serial Interface 2 connection. Its like a ribbon cable for image sensors.

I would suggest consult with ArduCam for detail information.


Currently, we only have the IMX477 camera using manual focus and one-shot focus on the Jetson. For details, please refer to the following link:MIPI_Camera/Jetson/IMX477/AF_LENS at master · ArduCAM/MIPI_Camera · GitHub
