Getting Started: Arducam ToF Camera & CSI-to-HDMI Adapter Set – for Jetson Nano/Xavier NX

ToF camera & CSI2HDMI for jetson

This is a guide specially prepared for the package consisting of an Arducam ToF Camera and CSI-to-HDMI Adapter Set.

About the CSI-to-HDMI adapter set

A CSI-to-HDMI adapter set breaks the length limitations of the MIPI CSI-2 interface and put your ToF camera up to 3~5 meters away from your Jetson. No extra software or configuration is needed.


To use the cable extension kit, you need to first verify if the ToF camera you choose works properly.
