How to enable LVDS data streaming on VOXL m500?
I am wondering how to enable LVDS data streaming on VOXL m500 for a fast data transfer? In my case, I would try to connect a sensor that offers LVDS for data streaming on VOXL.
I am wondering if I could use the below HDMI connector via the
J2, and use an HDMI to LVDS adapter to bridge the sensor?
Please advise if there are any other connection solutions to achieve this. Thanks.
@yu-zhang Unfortunately, ModalAI's HDMI accessory has been discontinued and is no longer available. We do not support an LVDS input.
@Eric-Katzfey I see, so in this case, only the
J8could be used as a USB3.0 port (connecting with a USB3.0 Female A Plug to Micro-B plug) to enable a standard data input, right?
The sensor I used has a 60pin Samtec connector (the shape is identical as
J13on VOXL but with a different wiring design) offering LVDS data streaming. It requires a throughput rate at 400Mbps - 1Gbps.
So, I am wondering whether the
J8could handle it if I find a LVDS-to-USB3.0 adapter?
@yu-zhang J8 is a USB 3.0 OTG (Meaning it can be either master or slave) port. You could certainly use that for data input, but then you would lose your adb port.
@Eric-Katzfey All right, thanks for that!
I think I could use the extended USB board to enable the adb by a micro USB port. I will then have a try J8.
@yu-zhang adb works as a USB "device" and attaches to a USB "host" (e.g. your PC). The only port that can act as a USB device is J8. The other ports are USB host only.
@Eric-Katzfey Thanks for reminding me about this So, I may have to switch to using the J8 in different scenarios.
