Toradex launches easy-to-integrate camera module
Toradex launch the new OV5640 5MP MIPI-CSI camera module. This is an add-on board for the Apalis family of system on modules (SoMs) compatible with the Ixora carrier board. The CSI camera module uses an OmniVision OV5640 camera sensor with built-in autofocus. The OV5640 is a low-voltage, high-performance, 1/4-inch, 5-megapixel (2592x1944) CMOS image sensor.
The module supports video capture at up to 120 frames per second at 320x240, 30 FPS at 1080p or 15 FPS in the full 5-megapixel resolution and 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. There is no requirement for an external power supply. The camera module is compatible with Toradex Yocto Project-based Standard Linux, Windows Embedded Compact (WinCE) 7 and 2013and the complete Apalis family including NVIDIA T30, NVIDIA TK1, NXP i.MX 6 and the upcoming NXP i.MX 8-based modules.
