USB issues with A603 Carrier board and Jetson Orin NX 16GB

We have bought the A603 carrier board for jetson orin from you.

The jetson is flashed with Jetpack version 5.1.2 (L4T Version 35.4.1) following the wiki guide A603 Carrier Board | Seeed Studio Wiki.

Note that we made sure to get the correct BSP driver for jetson 5.1.2. When we interact with our connected mipi camera using v4l2, all connected USB devices disconnects. We do have a NVIDIA jetson orin nano developer kit, this carrier board does not present the same issue.
This causes us to believe that the error is in your provided peripheral drivers. Is this an issue you are familiar with, or can you propose a solution?

attached are the system logs from when the issue is encountered.

Here is a walk-through of reproducing the issue. As well as a trimmed dmesg log. After boot, I have the following USB devices connected.

$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 10c4:ea60 Silicon Labs CP210x UART Bridge
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

$ ls /dev/ttyUSB*
/dev/ttyUSB0**

I then run the following command.
$ v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 --stream-mmap --stream-count=100**

After I ran v4l2-ctl, I now no longer have any connected USB devices.
Physically replugging the USB devices has no visible effect.

$ lsusb
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

$ ls /dev/ttyUSB*
ls: cannot access ‘/dev/ttyUSB*’: No such file or directory**

Log from dmesg (only the relevant parts after running v4l2-ctl)

[ 398.207780] bwmgr API not supported [ 398.285863] usb 1-3.1: USB disconnect, device number 3 [ 398.289846] cp210x ttyUSB0: cp210x converter now disconnected from ttyUSB0 [ 398.289902] cp210x 1-3.1:1.0: device disconnected [ 398.481345] tegra-xusb 3610000.xhci: entering ELPG done

We can confirm that running v4l2-ctl seems to kill the USB system on the A603 board -
after running the v4l2-ctl! it is not possible to plug in USB devices on the carrier and make them work.

Desperatly seeking advice!

Hi there,
Two things I’m Thinking is,
The command options for the v4l2-ctl don’t look correct or is missing something ?
Is the Seed Board able or compatible with 5.1.2 (L4T Version 35.4.1)
HTH
GL :slight_smile: PJ :v:

The command options for v4l2-ctl are chosen only as a bare minimum way of requesting a video-stream from the video device in order to reproduce the bug. Something like

gst-launch-1.0 -e nvarguscamerasrc sensor-id=0 ! fakesink

will cause exactly the same issue.
Seeedstudio implies that the board is compatible as they provide peripheral drivers for jetpack version 5.1.2 (L4T Version 35.4.1).

Hi there,
Ok I see, Is that for a “USB” video device capture? I was thinking maybe it needs to be a separate driver for the USB camera, looks to be trying the Nvidia one?
Wacky for sure.
I’m puzzled, but will continue to look.
GL :slight_smile: PJ :v:

Hi and thanks for your interest!
We are using a Sony IMX477 with an MIPI CSI-2 interface.
The USB works fine until we start the camera with

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 --stream-mmap --stream-count=100

When this command is issued the USB shuts down and no USB connections work!

Hi there,
Are you able to roll it back to 5.1.1 without too much trouble?
I think is this true ?
“that it should be noted that Jetson Orin NX module only supports JetPack 5.1 and above, while Jetson Orin Nano module only supports JetPack 5.1.1 and above.”
from the wiki
I don’t think it was fully baked :face_with_peeking_eye: :v:
HTH
GL :slight_smile: PJ

There is another interesting issue with this is that there are NO messages in the logs other than “disconnecting” - so it is very hard to debug this error!

Did you manage to solve the issue with usb and csi camera? I have the same issue with Jetson Orin Nano. I have flashed 5.1.1 and 5.1.2 and achieve the same result.

I apologize for being late. We have now updated a new A603 driver for this situation. Please replace it with the following driver when you install JP5.1.2. We have already tested it and confirmed that it allows USB and CSI to be used together normally.

Has anyone else tried this solution? It seems to have the same issues for me. As soon as i run

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 --stream-mmap --stream-count=100

my peripherals stop working, even when using this new driver.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused. Our engineers have made an urgent change to the version and confirmed that it is compatible with both. You can try this version to see if it works for you!

Hey, thanks for the reply and the new zip.

Unfortunately, this new zip yielded the same results for me.
Maybe I’m doing something wrong, honestly.

My Jetson is flashed with Jetpack 5.1.2 (L4T 35.4.1) using the official guide (link has already been posted in this thread).

No errors during flashing.

I followed the steps here to make sure IMX477 is setup:

Yet, when i run either

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/video0 --stream-mmap --stream-count=100

or

gst-launch-1.0 nvarguscamerasrc sensor-id=$SENSOR_ID ! "video/x-raw(memory:NVMM),width=1920,height=1080,framerate=$FRAMERATE/1" ! nvvidconv ! nv3dsink

the peripherals stop working. Here’s the output of the latter command (if it helps):

The errors in the output may be relating to another (maybe unrelated) issue I’m having in which the camera outputs a black screen when the command is run.

The camera I’m using is this (if it helps):

Best regards :v:

I noticed that the link you provided is based on the J401 carrier board, but the carrier board for our post is the A603. Please confirm that your device is the A603 so that we can better answer your question.

If your device is indeed the A603, were you able to successfully replace the driver with the zip file I mentioned earlier?
