Digital Camera Module with 1.3 Megapixel resolution for direct connection with LVDS SOM interface (monochrome).

VM-012-BW-LVDS is equipped with the ON Semiconductor monochrome CMOS Sensor VITA 1300. This sensor features a global as well as a rolling shutter (adjustable).

The sensor is highly sensitive up to 4,6 V/lux-s, even in the near-infra-red range (NIR). Due to the reduced resolution, the readout speed can be increased. Therefore frame rates of up to 150 fps at VGA resolution are possible. Customers can define up to 8 regions of interest (ROI) and only transmit the required pixels for those regions.

As for all phyCAM Modules, all parameters such as exposure time, gain and more can be adjusted via software.

VM-012-BW-LVDS is equipped with the serial phyCAM-S+ interface. It can connect directly to the SOM LVDS camera interface. All PHYTEC phyCARD and phyFLEX SOMs offer this interface, which is implemented on the PCB.

All camera drivers and demo programs are already implemented in the Board Support Package for the respective SOM. 

This camera board is equipped with a monochrome VITA 1300 (NOIV2SN1300A-QDC). Image data format is Y8 / Y10. Optional Y12 is available by jumper configuration. The camera is designed for an extended temperature range of -25°C to +85°C. 

The camera module is available with three housing options: PCB-version (sensor only), with M12 or with C/CS-mount lens holder.
