One-Stop Solution Provider for Your Jetson Camera Applications
Arducam Cameras for Jetson
Arducam is a camera solution provider for embedded systems that help you use cameras better and use better cameras on Jetson Platforms.
For a long time, we tend to borrow off-the-shelf Raspberry Pi cameras for Jetson applications. However, the official Pi cameras are not easily customizable, and cameras other than that come with little driver support.
With Arducam, you will not only have access to better Pi-like IMX219 and IMX477 cameras but also interface to other camera sensors that Arducam makes possible on the Jetson Platforms. Aside from that, we also made multiple cameras easier.
Jetson-Native IMX219 and IMX477
The native cameras are the camera modules that officially supported by the Jetson hardware with the driver and ISP support. At the moment, two camera modules IMX219 and IMX477 are natively supported, they can cover most of the use-cases. So if you are new to Jetson and want to use the camera with the existing on-line opensource code that uses native camera commands like
nvarguscamera, or nvargus API, etc.

Multi-camera Solutions for the Jetson
Arducam has several different multi-camera solutions to address different use-cases.
Multi-camera adapter board
The multi-camera adapter board is a MIPI camera multiplexer, that allows a maximum of four MIPI cameras to a single CSI-2 MIPI camera interface, but only one camera can be activated at a time.
Stereo camera HAT
Stereo camera HAT is a MIPI camera aggregator that can connect two same type MIPI cameras at the same time and fully synchronized. It is useful for stereo vision applications like 360 camera, depth sensing, and multi-spectral vision.
Multiple USB3.0 camera shield
Using multiple USB cameras is the easiest way to create a multi-camera system. Arducam USB3.0 camera shield can help you DIY a synchronized multi-camera system with global shutter camera breakout boards.

PTZ (Pan-Tilt-Zoom) Camera
If you want to move the camera around, you need a pan-tilt mount. With a zoom lens added, you can zoom in to focus on the part you are interested in.
Camera for the Jetson plaform usually comes with M12 or C/CS-Mount interchangeable lens. Arducam covers a wide range of lenses to meet different kinds of needs.
