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.

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference

The inaugural event will take place June 25-27 in San Jose, CA!

Embedded Technologies Expo & Conference (ETC), in the largest embedded and IoT market in North America, is the ONLY event focused on what is most important to designers and implementers – education and training. Attendees will experience over 100 hours of unparalleled education and training covering embedded systems, IoT, connectivity, edge computing, AI, machine learning, and more. Co-located with Sensors Expo & Conference, attendees will have the opportunity to see hundreds of leading exhibitors and network with thousands of industry peers and innovators.

 

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.

 

The DesignCore NVIDIA Jetson SerDes Sensor Interface card is available now, priced at $499. For more insights, download the SerDes card datasheet
