D3, an NVIDIA Elite Partner, announced that its DesignCore® Discovery and Velocity Series cameras are compatible with the Isaac ROS Argus Camera package. This support provides customers with the high-quality, rugged SerDes-enabled sensing technology required to build high-performance robotic solutions.

“D3 is focused on delivering advanced perception solutions to accelerate development of performance-critical robotic systems,” said Jason Enslin, Director of Business Development at D3. “Our 100% U.S.-made DesignCore Discovery and Velocity Series cameras offer drivers that seamlessly integrate with the Isaac ROS GEMs for ROS hardware acceleration.”

The Isaac ROS Argus Camera module contains a ROS 2 package for sensor processing to output images. Image sensors are connected via CSI, FPD-Link, and GMSL hardware interfaces to NVIDIA Jetson platforms. This package uses dedicated hardware engines to accelerate image processing. The package is also powered by NVIDIA Isaac Transport for ROS (NITROS), which leverages type adaptation and negotiation to optimize message formats and dramatically accelerate communication between participating nodes.

The compatible cameras in the DesignCore Discovery Series feature either a Sony IMX390 or ISX031 image sensor, with high dynamic range (HDR), LED flicker mitigation, and frame sync support that results in high-quality video even in dynamic lighting conditions. Download the DesignCore Discovery Series (IMX390 Sensor) and DesignCore Discovery Series (ISX031 Sensor) datasheets for more information.

The compatible cameras in the DesignCore Velocity Series feature an onsemi AR0234 image sensor, which utilizes a global shutter and high frame rates to deliver superior image quality in strobe illumination and challenging motion scenes. Download the DesignCore Velocity Series (AR0234 Sensor) datasheet for more information.

Both Series include a ruggedized PRO lineup featuring premium lenses, lens-specific image tuning, and IP67 ingress protection. Download the DesignCore Discovery PRO Series (IMX390 Sensor), DesignCore Discovery PRO Series (ISX031 Sensor), and DesignCore Velocity PRO Series (AR0234 Sensor) datasheets to learn more.

D3 also offers camera customization, NVIDIA Jetson-based carrier boards, and integration services to meet your specific use-case needs. D3 can produce your design as well with their 100% U.S. in-house ODM services.
