Together with the already existing Wandboard and Nitrogen Max CSI-2 Adapter Boards for NXP iMX 6, Allied Vision offers a large choice of adapter board and other accessories, such as CSI-2 cables and lenses to ease integration of the Alvium camera platform into different embedded platforms. Design files for the adapters are available as open source design files on GitHub.

CSI-2 driver for NVIDIA Jetson System-on-Modules
Also available on GitHub are numerous CSI-2 drivers for various Systems on Module (SoMs) and embedded boards. For NVIDIA's Jetson systems, Allied Vision provides a CSI-2 driver that is compatible with various system-on-modules of the Jetson family (Jetson Nano, Jetson TX2 and Jetson AGX Xavier) and the NVIDIA JetPack SDK, regardless of the choice of Alvium camera used. Also for future versions of the JetPack SDK, easy integration is guaranteed without the need for another driver.

In order to enable an easy evaluation and setup for our customers, Allied Vision also provides precompiled kernel for Jetson Nano, TX2, and Xavier on alliedvision.com, ready to use SD card image for Jetson Nano and driver sources and installation scripts as well as code examples on GitHub.
