Camera Module Simplifies Machine Vision Prototyping

Offered as an add-on board for the Apalis family of system on modules (SoMs) compatible with the Ixora carrier board, the OV5640 5-Mpixel MIPI-CSI camera module uses an OmniVision OV5640 camera sensor with built-in autofocus. The OV5640 is a low-voltage, 1/4-inch, 5-Megapixel (2592x1944) CMOS image sensor. Camera module features include:

  • Support for video capture at up to 120 frames per second (FPS) at 320x240, 30 FPS at 1080p or 15 FPS in the full 5-megapixel resolution
  • Direct connection to the MIPI Camera Serial Interface 2 (MIPI CSI-2) on Apalis carrier boards using a 24-way 0.5 mm pitch FFC cable
  • No requirement for an external power supply
  • Compatibility with Toradex Yocto Project-based Standard Linux
  • Compatibility with Windows Embedded Compact (WinCE) 7 and 2013
  • Compatibility with the complete Apalis family including NVIDIA T30, NVIDIA TK1, NXP i.MX 6 and the upcoming NXP i.MX 8-based modules
