NVIDIA® Development Kits

The Imaging Source's embedded development kit for the Jetson Nano platform enables rapid development of embedded vision and AI projects.

The Imaging Source provides pre-built drivers for the FPD-Link III interface and the sensor modules compiled for the latest NVIDIA JetPack SDK versions. For integration of the sensor and interface drivers into a custom kernel, the source code of all drivers is available to our customers upon request. All sensors use either the standard video-4-linux API or NVIDIA's proprietary API based on libargus as their programming interface. The video4linux interface provides RAW video data only and allows for direct control of all sensor parameters.

Leveraging the hardware ISP (Image Signal Processor) available on all Jetson platforms, the NVIDIA libargus interface delivers a processed video stream to the application with de-mosaicing, color correction and white balance algorithms applied. The Imaging Source provides a default configuration file for the ISP. Using the NVIDIA GStreamer interface for libargus, the application can interface with NVIDIA's standard Jetson ecosystem software stack which enables the efficient integration of powerful image processing frameworks such as DeepStream, Visionworks and others.

  • Sony and ONSemi sensor modules
  • Serializer / deserializer
  • USB card reader
  • Additional hardware (cables, screws, standoffs etc.)
  • Downloadable kernel images
  • HALCON Ready

Pre-built kernel drivers are available for NVIDIA JetPack 4.3 SDK. The drivers are compliant with the NVIDIA l4t video4Linux interface and work with the standard NVIDIA software stack like JetCam, DeepStream SDK and others. The source code for all drivers is available upon request.
