I recently saw the Jetson Xavier from NVIDIA (https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/jetson-xavier-faq).
I need to connect 16 12MP cameras like this one: https://www.baumer.com/it/en/product-overview/image-processing-identification/industrial-cameras/lx-series/10-gige-interface/vlxt-123c-i/p/38561.
I have 2 questions: 1) can the interface provided manage at least 8 of them? These are the specs: - 16x CSI-2 Lanes (40 Gbps in D-PHY V1.2 or 109 Gbps in CPHY v1.1) - 8x SLVS-EC lanes (up to 18.4 Gbps)
2) Xavier boasts (2x) 4Kp60 | HEVC video decoding. 4k is too little for 12MP...can I split the 8 cameras video stream in 2, and encode the upper and lower part of the images in 2 separate videos, leveraging the HW encoder? Can it encode 16 video streams (2x8) at the same time?
