MIPI CSI-2 sensor modules


The Imaging Source offers a wide variety of high-performance MIPI CSI-2 sensor modules for embedded vision applications. These color sensor modules feature a 28-pin interface defined by The Imaging Source, which ensures stable and broadband transmission of image data. An adapter specially developed by The Imaging Source gives system engineers maximum flexibility in connecting the sensor modules to the desired target platform. For plug-and-play integration with The Imaging Source development kits for Raspberry Pi 4B, NVIDIA® Jetson Nano™ and NVIDIA® Jetson Xavier™ NX, The Imaging Source offers a sensor module plus adapter product: MIPI CSI-2 board cameras.

The MIPI CSI-2 protocol enables direct processor / ISP connection, avoiding latency issues and minimizing footprint and are perfect for single and multi-camera embedded vision applications in automotive and IoT as well as standard machine vision applications. The sensor modules feature the latest Sony and ONSemi CMOS sensors (global and rolling shutter).

  • Resolution: 0.4 MP - 5 MP
  • Frame rate: up to 120
  • Dimensions: Starting at 30 x 30 x 4.25 mm
  • Direct processor / ISP connection
  • OpenEmbedded layers to build custom images

Pre-built kernel drivers are available for the latest NVIDIA JetPack releases. The drivers are compliant with the NVIDIA l4t video4Linux interface and work with the standard NVIDIA software stack like JetCam, DeepStream SDK and others. The source code for all drivers is available upon request.
