Arducam OV9281 1MP Global Shutter NoIR Camera Module for NVIDIA® Jetson Nano/Xavier NX/AGX Orin/Orin Nano/Orin NX


Item Description

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 released OV9281 global shutter monochrome (B&W) 1280x800 resolution MIPI camera module for Jetson Nano. It is based on a 1/4-inch Omnivision OV9281 image sensor which adopts OmniPixel3-GS™ technology to provide full-frame, sub-sampled, and windowed 8/10-bit MIPI images and is capable of operating at up to 120fps in full resolution at 1-lane MIPI bus with complete user control over image quality.
The sensor's global shutter and excellent low-light sensitivity allow it to be used for any application that needs gesture detection, head and eye tracking, and depth and motion detection.

Currently, NVIDIA official has released the NVIDIA Jetson Orin series developer board. Based on it, we have also adapted Arducam Jetvariety camera into the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX kernel.
