Alvium FPD Link III and GMSL2™ cameras

Based on the Alvium MIPI CSI-2 cameras Allied Vision 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.

Your Benefits:

  • Fully EMC compliant
  • Shock and vibration proof
  • Fast and low overhead image transmission on embedded systems
  • Multi camera friendly
  • Deserializer boards for FPD-Link III and GMSL2™ available
  • Thin STP and coax cables with different lengths available

Easy integration


Alvium CSI-2 cameras

To operate Alvium CSI-2 cameras on your vision system, Allied Vision provides different access modes:

  • GenICam for CSI-2 Access controls the camera by GenICam features, using the Alvium CSI-2 driver and CSI-2 transport layer (TL) directly.
  • Direct Register Access (DRA) to control the cameras via registers for advanced users.
  • Video4Linux2 Access allows to control the cameras via established V4L2 API and applications like GStreamer and OpenCV.

Open-source CSI-2 drivers are available on GitHub for different boards and system on chips (SoCs).


Alvium GigE, 5GigE and USB3 cameras

Alvium USB, GigE and 5GigE cameras can be easily integrated into embedded systems with Allied Vision's next generation  Vimba X SDK, a fully GenICam-compliant platform-independent SDK for all Allied Vision cameras with GigE, 5GigE and USB3 Vision Interface.

GenICam-based Transport Layers support the Alvium cameras and can automatically connect them to third-party software solutions such as MATLAB, OpenCV, Halcon, CVB, and many more.


The NVIDIA CSI-2 driver for NVIDIA Jetson Nano, TX2, Xavier NX, and AGX Xavier with Jetpack 4.4 supports all current and future Alvium camera modules with MIPI CSI-2 interface, no matter which sensor the camera module uses. With minimal development effort, various cameras can be tested with different sensors, diverse resolution variants of a system can be developed, or existing systems can be upgraded to latest sensors. This not only saves time, but also significantly reduces development costs. Comprehensive documentation and support further facilitate system integration and simplifies prototyping. The one common driver for NVIDIA’s Jetson SoMs is available on
