The VC MIPI starter pack including camera, cable, and driver for the NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit makes embedded vision development as easy as can be
August 5, 2020 – Vision Components has added a new starter pack to its MIPI product range for embedded vision projects: users simply connect the camera module and MIPI cable to their NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit, and they are ready set to start application development. Additional accessories are included, notably the necessary driver, allowing users to save development time and costs. Customers have the free choice of sensor from the largest available range of machine vision sensors with a MIPI interface. Currently, sensor resolutions up to 20 megapixels are available. The starter pack also includes a lens holder (C/CS-mount or S-mount) and a shielded 200-mm FPC cable.
Vision Components developed the cables specifically for the MIPI camera modules, ensuring noise-free data transmission and high bandwidths. The German company provides the driver and source code free of charge, allowing users to make their own adjustments. Prices for the starter pack start at 86.98 euros plus VAT (for example: VC MIPI OV9281, S-mount lens holder, FPC MIPI cable). NVIDIA Jetson Nano is a compact computer for embedded projects utilizing AI. In combination with the VC MIPI starter pack with guaranteed long-term availability, it is ideal for vision applications such as image classification and object detection.
