Basler to support NVIDIA's Jetson Orin Nano Edge AI Platform

Sept. 20, 2022

Ahrensburg, GermanyBasler plans to introduce in early 2023 Add-on Camera Kits with 5 and 13 MPixels to support the NVIDIA® Jetson Orin™ Nano system-on-modules (SOMs), the company announced Tuesday.

Basler's announcement follows NVIDIA's launch on Tuesday of the Jetson Orin Nano modules, which will be available in January 2023.

Basler’s Add-on Camera Kits will be ready-to-use vision extensions that include an adapter board, camera, lens, and cables.

On the software side, the Basler Camera Enablement Package enables smooth integration of Basler’s Camera Software pylon with NVIDIAs JetPack™ software development kit. A Camera Enablement Package includes Basler's camera kernel driver, device-tree overlays for the supported boards, GenTL Producer, and the pylon Viewer application.

With this launch, Basler says it is building on its support of the NVIDIA platform, allowing its customers to develop edge AI, robotics, AIoT, and embedded solutions on the NVIDIA Jetson AGX Orin developer kit, and then deploy and scale their applications on the AGX Orin production modules, as well as the Orin Nano and Orin NX modules, once they are available.

“The upcoming NVIDIA Orin Nano SOMs are an ideal processing platform to develop advanced edge AI vision systems for our customers focusing on automation applications in smart factories, the medical and life sciences market, robotics and logistics use cases, as well as intelligent traffic systems,” says Malene Fricke, Head of Module Business at Basler.
