Allied Vision has partnered with NVIDIA to make industrial computer vision cameras and their benefits accessible to Jetson-based system designers through the Alvium Series of MIPI CSI-2 and USB cameras. Thanks to the ALVIUM® Technology, prototyping and system integration have never been so easy and future system updates are more flexible.
Allied Vision is an official NVIDIA partner and a proud member of the Jetson Ecosystem.
Alvium Camera Kit for NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit
Tailored for the NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit, Allied Vision offers an Alvium Camera Kit, including everything needed to start prototyping.
One driver fits all: enjoy the flexibility!
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 4.4.1. (L4T 32.4.4). A beta driver for JetPack 4.5.1 (L4T 32.5.1) will also be available shortly. You can find them 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.
Allied Vision provides adapter boards to convert the MIPI CSI-2 pinning of Alvium cameras to NVIDIA Jetson TX2, AGX Xavier, and Nano development kits. Our driver and adapter board for Jetson TX2 support using 2 Alvium CSI-2 cameras at the same time without additional configuration. For quick and easy camera evaluation, we provide code examples on GitHub.
