5MegaPixel Auto Focus CMOS camera module with JPEG output. The camera module is based on OmniVision OV5640 image sensor and can be used with Any shields and other platforms like Freescale i.MX6 develops the board.
The OV5640 (color) image sensor is a low voltage, high-performance, 1/4-inch 5 megapixel CMOS image sensor that provides the full functionality of a single chip 5 megapixel (2592×1944) camera using OmniBSI™ technology in a small footprint package. It provides full-frame, sub-sampled, windowed, or arbitrarily scaled 8-bit/10-bit images in various formats via the control of the Serial Camera Control Bus (SCCB) interface.
The OV5640 has an image array capable of operating at up to 15 frames per second (fps) in 5-megapixel resolution with complete user control over image quality, formatting, and output data transfer. All required image processing functions, including exposure control, gamma, white balance, color saturation, hue control, defective pixel canceling, noise canceling, etc., are programmable through the SCCB interface or embedded microcontroller.
