Test with Jetson Nano

Hardware connection

  • Connect the camera to CSI interface of Jetson Nano.Set the metal side of FFC into Heat-sink
  • Connect an HDMI LCD to Jetson Nano

Software setting

  • Power on Jetson Nano and open the Terminal (Ctrl+ALT+T)
  • Test camera with command:
DISPLAY=:0.0 gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc ! 'video/x-raw(memory:NVMM), width=3280, height=2464, format=(string)NV12, framerate=(fraction)20/1' ! nvoverlaysink -e
  • Test dual-camera
    • IF you want to test dual cameras with B01 Developer Kit.You can just add sensor-id=x to the pipeline. x can be 0 or 1.
#test video0
DISPLAY=:0.0 gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc sensor-id=0 ! 'video/x-raw(memory:NVMM), width=3280, height=2464, format=(string)NV12, framerate=(fraction)20/1' ! nvoverlaysink -e
#test video1
DISPLAY=:0.0 gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc sensor-id=1 ! 'video/x-raw(memory:NVMM), width=3280, height=2464, format=(string)NV12, framerate=(fraction)20/1' ! nvoverlaysink -e
  • If you find that the image captured is reddish. You can try to download .isp file and installed:
tar zxvf Camera_overrides.tar.gz 
sudo cp camera_overrides.isp /var/nvidia/nvcam/settings/
sudo chmod 664 /var/nvidia/nvcam/settings/camera_overrides.isp
sudo chown root:root /var/nvidia/nvcam/settings/camera_overrides.isp

Test with Compute Module

The IMX219 series can be used with Compute Module series of Raspberry Pi with carriers. And the usage are same as other Raspberry Pi cameras
Becuase of the encropytoin, the IMX219 series cameras cannot be used with Raspberry Pi board like the Raspberry Pi 4B, please note it.

  • Connect the camera to Compute Module Carrier board (like Compute Module 4 PoE Board), please take care of the direction.
  • Open a terminal and configure the camera
sudo raspi-config
Select Interfacing Options -> Camera -> Yes
  • Reboot
  • Test the camera with command:
sudo raspistill -t 0
