  • Ordering Guide

Boson for FRAMOS is an AI vision powerhouse, integrating up to four MIPI cameras within an extremely small footprint. Specifically designed for use within the FRAMOS Sensor Ecosystem, Boson maximizes sensor inputs and storage solutions for high-end vision applications. This joint product offering provides customers with a plug and play vision solution that accelerates application development time. Compatible with both the Jetson Nano and Xavier NX SoM, Boson for FRAMOS comes standard with software hooks in the board support package that automatically connects select cameras in the FRAMOS Sensor Module Ecosystem to NVIDIA’s JetPack SDK, eradicating any further development requirements from your Software team.

Jetson users ready to migrate their application from the NVIDIA Developer Kit and into a production environment not only benefit from a significant size reduction compared to the Developer Kit, but Boson for FRAMOS also doubles the MIPI CSI-2 interfaces. While the Developer Kit supplies two 2-lane MIPI connectors, Boson for FRAMOS has four FRAMOS PixelMate connectors directly on the carrier board.  These connectors allow users to directly connect up to 4x 2-lane or 3x 4-lane MIPI CSI-2 cameras from the FRAMOS Sensor Module Ecosystem.

While Boson for FRAMOS is compatible with both the NVIDIA Jetson Nano and Xavier NX SoM’s, some listed I/O are not available for Nano applications.  Deployments with the Jetson Nano module will be limited to 1x Ethernet Port, M.2 E-Key USB 2.0 only (no PCIe), and no CAN connector.

Boson for FRAMOS Integration Options

Direct camera integration to the carrier board eliminates the need for an adapter board and decreases the overall hardware stack height. Customers looking for a full stack option can choose to integrate Boson for FRAMOS with their NVIDIA module of choice, available heat sinks, as well as other connectivity options.
