September 22, 2020 – Vision Components offers software support for Auvidea GmbH adapter boards, which can connect multiple VC MIPI camera modules to NVIDIA Jetson TX2 and Xavier AGX developer kits. Drivers are provided, enabling developers to start work on their embedded vision projects immediately. Auvidea’s tested and validated J20 adapter board supports all available VC MIPI cameras. The VC MIPI portfolio features a wide range of machine vision sensors up to 20 megapixels and is constantly being expanded. Notably, it also includes Sony Pregius IMX250 and IMX252 sensors, which have no native MIPI interface. The camera modules meeting the MIPI CSI-2 specification are manufactured by Vision Components with dowel holes for precise and repeatable mounting. The company’s 200-mm FPC (flexible circuit board) cables, which are especially developed for the MIPI modules, ensure interference-free data transmission at high bandwidths.
