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
