Digital camera module with 5,0 megapixels resolution for direct connection to a microcontroller interface. The VM-017 series is equipped with the CMOS sensor AR0521 from ON Semiconductor. The sensor is characterized by its high low-light performance and backside illumination technology. Different resolutions such as Full HD, HD, VGA are supported directly by the sensor. The camera module is available as a monochrome or color version and with a phyCAM-M (MIPI CSI-2) interface. 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.
