I’d like to get a compact carrier board with a CSI header for my TX2 module (something like the Elroy carrier or Auvidea J90). But from everything I’m reading, those boards have connectors for camera hardware, but don’t actually support cameras (or mabe it’s the Jetson that doesn’t support? Hard to tell from these forum postings). On the rare occasion somebody manages to get a camera working, all the video goes through the CPU, instead of through the GPU / hardware pipeline, making it useless for performance reasons.
I’m basically looking for a carrier board that is the same size as the TX2 module, that I can plug a MIPI / CSI-2 / CSI-3 camera into, and have it actually work. I’m trying to get away from the humongous ITX-scale Jetson carrier board (though it’s hard to argue with something that actually works).
If anyone has any suggestions on carrier board / camera module, I would be very interested.
