Low Latency C&C and Video Streaming with the Nvidia Jetson Nano: Hardware Setup
Figure 2 – Basic Hardware SetupThis tutorial makes use of the Nvidia Jetson Nano Developer
Kit which has standard interfaces like USB, HDMI etc. Basic hardware setup for
streaming is shown below.
The Jetson Nano can be powered over the
standard USB Micro device port (J28) or the barrel connector (J25). Use a 5-V
supply with at least a 2-A current rating. The camera is powered over the MIPI
CSI2 interface. Follow the datasheet of your particular Smart Radio model when
choosing a power supply.
We recommend using the MIPI CSI2 interface
for the camera, however if desired a USB camera could also be used. USB 2.0 has
a maximum link speed of 480 Mbps which is unsuitable for raw 1080p30 video,
which means that you will need at least a USB 3.0 interface. Note that the HDMI
port on Nano is an output port, so you cannot connect an HDMI camera to it. For
