D457: GMSL to USB or Ethernet
Our autonomous robot bases on a SMARC SOM and a customized electronics. This provides USB2.0, USB3.0, Ethernet interfaces. On the SOM we are running ROS 1 Noetic.
The D457 looks very suitable for our application as it already comes with IP65 protection (we require at least IP54). But the GMSL FAKRA interface seems hard to integrate into our platform.
Are there devices available with could bridge between our interfaces and can be integrated into our IP65 electronic box (where the SOM is placed)? Means:
GMSL FAKRA to USB converter
GMSL FAKRA to Ethernet converter
Thanks for the support
Hi Roman Leuzinger Although the D457 has a USB port, it is intended for use in debugging or production line testing and the camera should be used with a GMSL FAKRA cable. A 1000 mm / 1 m cable is supplied with the camera.
The D457 is also not a 'plug and play' camera like other RealSense 400 Series camera models are. Intel can provide a driver for AGX Xavier developer boards to customers who have a non disclosure agreement (NDA) with Intel. If an AGX Xavier computing board is not being used then the driver must be ported by the customer for use on their particular computing device.
Additionally, a de-serializer component that contains Maxim technology is required to decide the streams. Intel can supply a de-serializer product if customers contact the RealSense sales team, or alternatively a de-serializer by another provider that contains Maxim technology can be used.
Given your requirement to use a USB connection rather than GMSL FAKRA, the optimal solution may be to use a Chameleon XS commercial enclosure product for RealSense D415, D435 and D455 USB cameras that has IP66 and IP67 protection.
I contact the Sales team. I find only the product below. But no specification for it.
Is there any chance that the products which I have found by research can work?
Other camera vendors do have such bridges but do not sell them standalone:
Hi Roman Leuzinger I have received information from Intel that it is fine to use the D457 only in USB mode and it has the same USB performance and the same feature-set as the D455, with the added IP65 dust and water protection. So it is absolutely valid to purchase the D457 for the protection and use it as a USB camera instead of in GMSL / FAKRA mode.
