Alternative camera module VM-016: phyCAM-S+

34 mm x 34 mm

1,3 MP rolling

The VM-009-LVDS camera board is equipped with the Aptina MT9M131 color CMOS sensor.
This sensor has an integrated preprocessing (IFP - image flow processor), which enables image correction and enhancement.
The SOC architecture also enables the conversion of data formats. This means that six different 8-bit data formats are available.
The VM-009-LVDS supports the direct output of RGB, YUV and Bayer pattern formats. 

The camera board is connected to the serial phyCAM-S - Interface equipped. It can be connected directly to a controller board with an LVDS camera interface. PHYTEC offers this interface on controller boards from the phyCARD and phyFLEX families. The corresponding Basisplatinen are already equipped with the appropriate connector. On the software side, the corresponding camera drivers and demo programs for various PHYTEC controller boards are installed directly in the BSP provided.

The camera board can be supplied in three different housing variants: As a sensor board, with an M12 lens holder or with a C / CS mount bracket.
