THine Solutions has announced the new THEIA-CAM 13MP PDAF Camera, THSCJ101, for the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX and Jetson Orin Nano platforms.

Along with its pre-optimised ISP firmware and Linux driver, Jetson users are now able to easily integrate advanced imaging capabilities into their systems.

The THSCJ101 Kit is a Camera reference design kit for embedded camera applications that use the NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX or the Jetson Orin Nano platform. The THSCJ101 Kit is based on THine’s THP7312-P Image Signal Processor (ISP) and Sony’s IMX258 13MP CMOS PDAF image sensor.

THine’s optimised ISP firmware provides ultra-quick autofocus using Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF) technology and Best-in-Class image quality. The Kit hardware includes all items required to interface with Jetson Orin carrier boards with a 22-pin MIPI CSI-2 input connector, including a Camera Board in an acrylic case and a Flat Flexible Cable.

The Video4Linux2 (V4L2) driver for the THSCJ101 is also available to control various video functions. The performance of each Kit is repeatable for use in high-volume production due to our production process to characterise the image parameters of each image sensor and to calibrate the image signal processing to compensate for variation from sensor to sensor.

All technical information including the reference circuit schematics, ISP firmware, and V4L2 Driver are available to customers.

Also, for customers that require unique image performance features, THine can provide a GUI-based software development tool that customises the ISP firmware and/or the image sensor selection. As a result, the THSCJ101 can accelerate NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX/Nano platform users’ time-to-market without expensive integration cost or additional effort for developing embedded camera systems.

“We are providing the quickest and most reliable integration of Best-in-Class image quality and imaging performance into the world-leading AI platform,” said Tak Iizuka, Chief Solution Architect of THine Solutions, Inc. “By bypassing the camera system development and image quality tuning hassle as well as all in-production camera issues, AI system designers are able to focus on the AI development relying on our THEIA-CAM support.”

THSCJ101 key features:

  • Designed for NVIDIA Jetson Orin NX/Nano
  • Various high-resolution options including but not limited to 13MP at 20fps, 4K2K at 30fps, and 1080p at 60fps, in YUV422 format.
  • Phase Detection Autofocus (PDAF)
  • Optimised auto white balance and auto exposure
  • Perfect unit-to-unit image quality for high-volume production
  • Single 1.38” x 1.38” (35mm x 35mm) camera board
