Allied Vision is an official NVIDIA partner and a proud member of the Jetson Ecosystem. Allied Vision has partnered with NVIDIA to make industrial computer vision cameras and their benefits accessible to Jetson-based system designers.
The broad camera portfolio covers a wide range of different interfaces:
The powerful Alvium 1800 C MIPI CSI-2 camera series gives embedded system developers access to Sony’s high-performance image sensors popular in the machine vision industry. These sensors with resolutions up to 25 megapixels deliver excellent image quality and up to twice the frame rates compared to similar Alvium 1500 C models.
Alvium Camera Kit
for NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX Dev Kit and Jetson Nano Dev Kit
Tailored for the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier NX Developer Kit and Jetson Nano Developer Kit, Allied Vision offers an Alvium Camera Kit, including everything needed to start prototyping.
One driver fits all: enjoy the flexibility!
Open-source MIPI CSI-2 drivers for NVIDIA® Jetson™
Don't waste time on driver development: download, install, and get started!
To help you with a quick and easy start, Allied Vision provides open-source MIPI CSI-2 drivers for NVIDIA® Jetson™ Nano (4GB and 2 GB), Jetson™ TX2, Jetson™ AGX Xavier, and Jetson™ Xavier NX with NVIDIA JetPack™ SDK version 4.5.1 (L4T 32.5.1) (Beta for JetPack 4.6 (L4T 32.6.1) available on request) on our GitHub page.
The driver supports all current and future Alvium camera models with MIPI CSI-2 interface, regardless of the image sensor. That means that you only need one driver for your NVIDIA platform, regardless of the sensor resolution you choose. You can prototype with various camera models using the same driver or easily upgrade your system with another sensor later – even if this sensor is not yet released! Any Alvium MIPI CSI-2 camera will run on your system with the same driver.
Based on the Alvium MIPI CSI-2 cameras Allied Vision now also offers Alvium cameras with FPD Link III or GMSL2. With an additional PCB including the Serializer Chip the Alvium FP3 and GM2 cameras enable long cable solutions of up to 15 meters. All camera features can be used, so it works exactly the same as the standard Alvium MIPI CSI-2 via V4L2. Additionally, there is the de-serializer adapter board available which connects to the embedded board. You can also use a carrier board from one of our eco system partners who already have the de-serializer onboard.
The cameras will be available in different housing variants: open housing, closed housing or IP67 housing.
The open housing version is ready for prototyping upon your request.
