DesignCore Jetson SerDes Sensor Interface Card
D3 Engineering announces its DesignCore® NVIDIA® Jetson™ SerDes Sensor Interface Card for the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier™ and Jetson TX1/TX2 Developer Kits. Engineers can use the card to easily interface multiple cameras and other sensors to the Jetson platform for realistic benchtop evaluation and rapid proof-of-concept development.
The two most popular SerDes standards are both available on this card: FPD-Link™ III from Texas Instruments and GMSL2 from Maxim Integrated. Each sensor stream comes in over a serial link and is de-serialized into MIPI CSI-2 data for the Jetson Developer Kit. A MIPI CSI-2 input enables direct connection to the Jetson platform.
GPIO and I2C control are available for configuration, synchronization and reset. The card takes a 12V external supply and has a power-over-coax connection.
