As part of Project Jetvariety, which allows any camera modules to be connected to the high-speed CSI-2 connector on the Jetson Nano, Arducam just released this 16MP high-quality camera module for Jetson Nano. Arducam 16MP MIPI camera module incorporates SONY 1/2.8−inch CMOS which adopts Exmor-R technology to achieve high-speed image capturing with high sensitivity and low noise performance. “RGBW coding” color filter is employed, and RGB primary color mosaic is reproduced on the chip. High sensitivity, low dark current, and smear-free features are achieved. It equips an electronic shutter with variable integration time.


This camera relies on kernel drivers to work – one kernel version, one camera driver. Up or downgrading your OS leads to a kernel bump, and you may need to re-install a matching driver.
