ST. LOUIS and CHENNAI, India — April 22, 2015 — e-con Systems Inc., a leading embedded design services company specializing in the development of advanced camera solutions announces the launch of the world’s first MIPI CSI-2 camera solution for nVIDIA(r) Jetson Tegra K1 development kit - e-CAM130_CUTK1 ( e-CAM130_CUTK1 is a 13MP MIPI CSI-2 camera board for nVIDIA® Tegra K1 powered Jetson development kit.

The e-CAM130_CUTK1 is based on e-con Systems’ e-CAM130_CUMI1820_MOD ( - 13 MP Camera Module and interfaces with the Tegra K1 processor over 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface. e-con Systems has developed the Linux camera driver for this MIPI CSI-2 camera and the camera driver is compatible with standard V4L2 APIs. Together with the sample viewer application, the e-CAM130_CUTK1 forms a complete 4 lane MIPI CSI-2 camera solution comprising 13MP MIPI CSI-2 camera module, the compatible Linux driver and the sample viewer application running on Ubuntu distribution.

The e-CAM130_CUTK1 solution is ideal for customers who wish to leverage the 4-lane high-speed MIPI CSI-2 interface of Tegra K1 CPU. The camera driver is a standard V4L2 driver and any V4L2 compatible application can access this camera. e-con Systems distributes a sample viewer application that demonstrates the video preview and still capture application. This viewer application runs on the Ubuntu distribution of Jetson development board The 13MP camera module along with the adapter board allows the developer to incorporate this camera in to their designs immediately.

“We are excited to launch the 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 camera solution with the V4L2 driver for nVIDIA Jetson Tegra K1 CPU through our e-CAM130_CUTK. Earlier we launched 8 MP USB 3.0 camera support for Jetson board. Some of our customers using this USB3 camera have been asking for 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 support for Tegra K1 CPU citing to high performance. We are glad to have this fulfilled with the state-of-the-art camera solution that not only supports 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 but also 13MP resolution”, said Mr. Ashok Babu, President, e-con Systems Inc. “Our customers can also engage with e-con Systems for customizing or porting our driver to any camera module or to any of their customized Tegra K1 boards. e-con Systems also provides customization and porting services for our MIPI CSI-2 camera driver”, he added

This camera module houses an high-performance ISP chip that performs Auto functions (Auto Exposure, Auto White Balance, etc) in addition to the complete ISP pipeline that provides best-in-class images and video along with the optional MJPEG compression. The e-CAM130_CUMI1820_MOD supports 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface for video transport and the standard I2C interface for camera control. Through the 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 interface, this camera module supports Ultra HD (3840x2160) video streaming in addition to Full-HD and HD video streaming in both uncompressed YUV422 and MJPEG formats. The still image capture is supported at full 13MP resolution in both uncompressed BMP and compressed JPEG format.

On the nVIDIA Jetson development kit, the e-CAM130_CUTK1 supports streaming VGA@ 102 fps, HD@ 60 fps (720p60), Full HD@50 fps (1080p30), 4K or Ultra HD@ 22 fps (3840 x 2160) and 13MP@ 14 fps in uncompressed YUV format. It also streams VGA@ 102 fps, HD @ 50 fps, FHD @ 52 fps and 4K or Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) at 25 fps in compressed MJPEG format. This can also stream the 13MP video at a maximum of 15fps in compressed MJPEG format. The camera driver also exposes the standard camera controls such as exposure, brightness, contrast, saturation, white balance, gamma, gain, sharpness etc through the V4L2 interface.
