SerDes Sensor Interface Card Supports NVIDIA Jetson Platform

D3 Engineering’s DesignCore NVIDIA Jetson SerDes sensor interface card for the NVIDIA Jetson Xavier and Jetson TX1/TX2 Developer Kits allows engineers to 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.
