mvIMPACT Acquire - System Settings

Request Count20
A Request in the mvIMPACT Acquire API represents a buffer where an image with the current device configuration is captured into. In order to avoid losing images at a high FPS, it's recommended to increase the number of these request buffers (i.e. ' RequestCount' in ' SystemSettings', by default the value is set to 4 for MATRIX VISION USB2.0 cameras), so that the driver can continue capturing image data even if the host application is slower at processing an image than the camera transferring one. As a rule of thumb, the number of capture buffers should be configured roughly within the range of FPS/2 and FPS/5. In the following test, the RequestCount is set to 20 which is roughly FPS/5.

Choose the right power supply

The Jetson Nano has 2 power supply possibilities: via the micro-USB connection or via the Barrel Jack connection.

The power (by default 10W) via the micro-USB connector is not sufficient if you want to connect other peripherals (e.g. keyboard, mouse, cameras, etc...) that draw current from the board. So if when powering the USB/USB3 camera through the USB bus (i.e. no external power supply), please supply the board with power through the Barrel Jack connector (4A@5V).

Otherwise the system will throttle due to over-current.
