This Arducam HQ Camera for Jetson Nano and Xavier NX, 12.3MP 1/2.3 Inch IMX477 with 3 hole pitches, a 6mm CS lens is the latest camera from Arducam. You can use this camera module on Jetson Nano/Xavier NX natively with ISP features. No hardware modifications required, just install the driver and you are good to go.
IMPORTANT NOTE ON THE IMX477 MIPI LANES:
The IMX477 camera module support 4-lane in hardware, but the 4-lane camera driver requires extra customization. Here is why:
Standard Raspberry Pi and Jetson Nano/Xavier NX can’t physically support a 4-lane connection (both of them only have 2-lane CSI connectors). Only the Raspberry Pi Compute Module and some 3rd party Jetson Carrier Boards come with 4-lane hardware support. Therefore, it’s not a general need.
Extra works, specifically camera drivers, are required for a 4-lane connection other than the 4-lane physical connector. And the drivers are limited by the performances of the platform itself. For example, 4-lane can’t unlock 4k video on Raspberry Pi because the VideoCore does not currently support it. Jetson Nano is also to some extent limited because of the encoding capabilities. You need to make sure you really need it.
